Little Pleasures: Sockless Chucks

A late-discovered life pleasure: wearing Chuck Taylors without socks.  I've always thought that gym socks looked too much like underwear, so I tend to wear the shortest ankle socks I can find, but no socks is better still.  The canvas breathes surprisingly well and airs out quickly, and if they take on an odor, you can just throw them in the washing machine.

The pair shown are perhaps eight months old and starting to break in nicely.  My only regret is that the stripes around the sole are red and blue--just blue would make these absolutely perfect for wear with jeans no matter what kind of shirt accompanied them.  As it is, the red can sometimes intrude if the shirt is more muted or in a different family.

And a green shirt makes it look like you're ready for Christmas.
