Chucks are shoes put out by Converse. the complete name for them is 'Chuck Taylors'. I've also heard them reffered to as 'Connies', but this sounds lame (in my opinion).

People have already listed a whole lot of steroetpyes that wear chucks (really anyone can wear them, they look great and have a really simple design) but no one has mentioned the B-Boys of the late 70s through to the 80s.
While everyone know Adidas Superstars are strongly embedded in this period of history, Chucks are often overlooked.

I've seen images of B-Boy rocking chucks with the tongues out (postitioned outside of their jeans) and with FAT laces.

Just thought everyone should know. When i think of Chucks, i think of B-Boys and the Ramones.
"Oh wow, man. Look! Lil' Johnny just pulled off some made breakin' in his fresh new Chucks!"
"Fuck... Those laces are FATT."

Get the Chucks mug.
In the original days of Chuck was the only shoe really available, up until the year 2002 you could buy them for 10 dollars because all they are is canvas and hard rubber made my the blistered hands of children in sweatshops. Now that they are "popular" dumasses pay 40 to 50 bucks for these shoes. Now im not sayin they arent cool but the prices are ridiculous for the product.
Preppy Whore- OmG i jus got these shoes and they are teh bomb!!! I got deez chuck tylers or w/e they are called and it only cost 40 dollars!!!
Kid who knows shoes-dum cracker ass ho

Wow...they're SHOES people! It's sad that all of you can look at a person's shoes and assume so many things about them (ie: they're a poser prep or some "emo fag", etc etc). I personally spend $30 on a pair, because I (gasp!) actually like them and how they look. No, I'm not trying to look "punk", I'm not trying to fit in, I'm just wearing some sweet shoes.
Dumb Narrowminded Person Who Had Chucks Before Chucks Were "Cool": What the fuck, you just bought some new Chucks for the first time, you're just trying to be cool. What a freaking poser.

Me: Dude, they're a fucking piece of rubber, canvas, and thread. Get a life.

Chucks is actually short for chuck taylors. The first converse chuck taylor was created in 1923 when chuck taylor and converse teamed up to create a new and innovative basketball shoe ( why anyone would want to play b-ball in these is beyond comperhension) I actually own many pairs of chucks I think my collection is up to about 19, and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon!!!
