I humbly disagree...you can totally rock them! :)

You mean you look like an old man so you would look ridiculous in them?
I've been told I look like a typical 50 something male so wearing Chucks would make it appear I would be trying too hard to hold on to my youth. Frankly, I don't care what people wear but if you're well into middle age and look like it, I'm going to laugh under my breath if you're wearing Chuck Taylors or have purple hair or are wearing a halter top or have numerous piercings or any number of other things. And if you're a woman of a certain age and are wearing those with a dress or skirt, I may laugh out loud. Roll the bones!

People let numbers and calendars, two man-made constructs, rule their perceptions of who and what they are. The human body though is not a man-made construct and it's biology and automatic systems know nothing of numbers and years and calendars and they cannot affect them in any way. Unless you allow them to affect your mind.

If you're into that, go for it, but don't get your diaper in a twist if I laugh at you.

At work I wear a couple of different pairs of running type shoes and outside of there, I wear similar ones or lace up casual shoes and the occasional boot.

Are you not too old for running shoes too? And what shoes are you supposed to be wearing according to whoever it is that you take notice of? Brogues? Hush puppies?

Are you not too old for running shoes too? And what shoes are you supposed to be wearing according to whoever it is that you take notice of? Brogues? Hush puppies?
Men should wear leather shoes of a loafer or lace-up variety and women shouldn't be wearing shoes unless their kitchen floor is cold. Of course I kid. This is my opinion here, but when I see adults well into adulthood wearing Chucks, I think they're trying to avoid getting older. Obviously that wouldn't be the case for all of them, and right or wrong, that's often what goes through my head. The same goes for Crocs, although again, imo, no adult should wear those outside of the house unless it's to work in the garden.  But hey, that's just me. wear whatever you want or what makes you happy. I saw a guy last week who was wearing what appeared to be hand stitched pants, that looked like they were assorted quilt squares with the seams on the outside. Apparently he liked them.  :bump:
