TOOL: Hemp Converse Chuck Taylor All Star High Tops

A subtle modern spin on the "classic" Chuck Taylor Hi Tops. Different sole. Very light light, but durable. And made of hemp. Even says so on the tag. Hemp!

Hard to find locally. I opted to get mine off Amazon. Great price. Great product. Arrived quickly and quietly.

The shoes are as comfortable as my first pair, 20 years ago. But I don't remember having trouble getting them on. These days, I have to loosen laces, pull up the tongue, and dips my toes through at a steep angle. Maybe I didn't pay as much attention back then. Maybe I'm just not cool enough.

That's probably it. Too old and crunchy. But, so what. I'm going to pry them on, anyway.

That's how I roll these days.
