Converse Chuck Taylor All Star High Top Sneaker

Canvas high-top sneakers. Synthetic sole. Canvas upper. Rubber toe cap.

When I put on my high-top Chucks, I feel a connection to all the greats of the past, but I’m not talking about skinny white basketball players from the 1950’s. No, I mean the hundreds of elite lifters, some of who set all-time world records, who pledge allegiance to almighty Chucks. They’re just terrific, inexpensive, retro-stylish shoes for doing squats and deadlifts. The thick, flat sole gives you all the stability you need to push up big weights.
