Do You Clean Your Chucks?

Chuck Taylor - Converse Chuck Taylors. The basic design hasn't change since the 50s. Its a classic show that stood the test of time.

I love my Chuck Taylors. I own 5 pairs of them. I keep them clean all the time that's why they always look new. The canvass ones, I just throw them in the washing machine to keep them clean. Then I brush the rubber soles to make them white. The leather ones are easier, just a few wipes then they're good as new. A friend asked me why I do this because he said that Chucks are meant to be dirty. I really don't know why, I just like my shoes clean. Do you clean your Chuck Taylors?

I like to make my shoes clean when they're too dirty from my view. I think it's an attitute so will be different from person to person. I think maybe you like keeping clean for everything much more than the others. hehe, Keep clean is a good habit, just do whatever you wanna to do lol

Be ware of what your chuck taylors make of and choose suitable cleanser coz some cleansing substance may erode the fibre that might causes transformations.

Oh! I was confused at first. You mean Converse shoes. Yes I used to have a few pairs, but the got worn out and I never bought anymore. I like New balance and Adidas now. I have lots of pairs of them. I like the bounce ones. I try to keep mine clean, but as you friend says shoes are meant to be dirty so I don't keep them clean like you. However, as you said, I do put shoes in the washer from time to time to keep them looking nice. Cheers! Happy myLotting & keep on Roxing!
