Before Chuck Taylor's became popular again, they were damn near impossible to find. The reason I know this is because my father has never worn any other tennis shoe.
I remember when my mom would find them at a random store she would buy every single pair of the low top, classic black Chuck Taylor's in my dad's size.
When we were told that Henley would have to wear leg braces all the time, we immediately asked what shoes would work. Our physical therapist said Chuck Taylor's.
Yesterday, Henley's Pops (@gvanhooser) came to visit her and we went to get some new shoes for her birthday. Baby girl got her first pair of Chuck Taylor's. And, for the record, easiest pair of shoes to get over her braces.
