    They Might Be Difficult Sometimes, But I Love Them

    I own I think 4 pairs of Chucks. I don't know what happened to my first pair, they were so worn out they probably disintegrated. I climbed a mountain in them twice (not the smartest idea, they had no tread left), and basically just lived in them. I've had a few pairs since then...

    I Miss My Red, Low-top Chucks

    I haven't worn them all summer, I think. I like wearing sandals and things, you know, take advantage of the heat. Expose the feet. But I miss my pals. They've seen me through a lot. They make me feel comfy. And cute.
