What is the one shoe that seems to know no time limits?

Well some of you ladies out there might be thinking Manolos, Choos, Louboutins or Guccis….but you couldn’t be further from the truth.
The one shoe that seems to be coveted by celebrities, and us regular folk, day in and day out since the 1930s is none other than the great Chuck Taylor Sneaker.  Seen on everyone from Madonna to Jennifer Aniston, these little gems are continually comfortable and stylish. I’ve yet to meet a fashionista that didn’t own at least a one pair of these kickers!
Being frank here, they are not the most flattering footwear, by any means.  In fact if you don’t have Gisele Bundchen twig legs you are better off leaving these worn under bootcut jeans. The last young woman I saw sporting Chucks was wearing jean cutoffs and a flannel shirt and her legs looked like two tree trunks wearing canvas sneakers.  So a word to the wise – this is a trend that works well on celebrities because they are all uber-thin. Take caution, those of you in the real world, when putting together an outfit around CTs.  They are both heaven and hell for a look!
