It is ironic how unlikely it would actually be to play ball in Chucks today when many of us would have sacrificed something very dear for just that opportunity as young aspirants in the early 1970s. My own ascension to Chucks included Converse's Lou Brock baseball shoe, Thom McAn's Chuck clones called NBA's (nicely documented here:http://sneakers.pair.com/clone-b.htm), and Pro Keds. One might even have played in low tops-just about unthinkable today. After the first few of many sprained ankles, there was regrettably no going back to canvas. I've actually gone back to Converse because it seemed that they were the only genuine high tops I could find.
