Too old to be wearing Converse Chucks?

Rebel Alexa/ Shoes


All year round, 365 days a year, I love wearing my white and blue Converse with skinny jeans, Céline pants, Chinos – all types of pants but not to skirts. Again and again I read that people beyond their forty years are not so well advised to wear Chucks. So, am I too old to wear Converse??


I think it’s hard to give categorical style recommendations for certain age groups. Of course it needs a sense of proportion and a bit of skill in styling. If it’s there, then I can well imagine Chucks on a 85 year old woman. For me, Converse are the only shoes that are completely ageless, wearable from kids to grandma. I am sure that I will put on my Converse Chucks the next 20 years and then I will be 62 year old!

    I think you look great in your Chucks and I agree they are a classic item for all ages.
