Description

Does it get more recognizable than this? When people talk about their “Chucks,” they are almost always referring to a pair of Chuck 70 High Tops. Believe it or not, these shoes were once meant to be athletic shoes. Today, however, they have firmly cemented themselves in popular culture as a favorite fashion shoe. Especially beloved by the punk, hardcore, and alternative music scenes, there have been thousands of colorways released over the years, often in collaborations with musicians, comic book artists, and popular TV shows. 

 

The Chuck 70 High Top might be one of the most recognizable silhouettes in sneaker history. A flat, rubber sole and a simple canvas upper with a high ankle is all you get with a Chuck 70. And yet, sometimes less is more. The little black dress of the sneaker world, a pair of plain black or white Chuck 70s will go with just about any casual outfit. Better still, the Chuck 70 is a unisex shoe, and so has been been worn to great aclaim by people of all genders and ages. 

 

Through their introduction into the world of skateboarding, Chuck 70s slowly but surely became a favorite in alternative or counter culture circles, especially in the early 2000s. Many exclusive releases of the Chuck 70 have been some kind of tribute to punk bands, skater culture, comic books, science fiction, or even dark-sided writers like Edgar Allan Poe or H.P. Lovecraft. Alternative clothing retailers like Journeys and Hot Topic further cemented the relationship between punk-minded teens and these shoes. Firmly a sneaker classic, these shoes continue to be released in hundreds of pop culture-themed colorways every year. Along with skinny jeans, studded belts, and labrets, these shoes undoubtedly have a place as a symbol of early 2000s punk culture, but their continued popularity indicates that their appeal is more universal than any one subculture.
