Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star 1985 Original Ad

Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Made in the USA Original Advertisement 1985

I came across this vintage sneaker ad through Paper Chasr who posted a link to DefyNewYork in the OSD Group. It’s such a great find. I remember seeing it in Sports Illustrated back when I was a kid, and of course, I’m one of the biggest Chuck Taylor advocates. I think it’s the most widely appreciated sneaker of all-time and will always be a part of pop culture thanks to its versatility and classic styling. Though I’m a huge fan, I will be the first to tell you that Limousines for Your Feet might be a bit of an exaggeration. Then again, we’re all spoiled with comfort compared to the ’80s and before.

I’m always looking for size 12 Made in the USA versions if you have any.
