    I wore them in high school, never had a problem.
    As I got older, I realized never, ever buy cheap shoes.

    I got a pair of low tops. It was raining and I ran to the house. Got me thinking of people playing ball in them

    WTF, Do you think I photoshopped it? There's a NFL films video of him running in Chucks I always remember seeing, can't find it though.

    Beat me to it. About to post the same thing.

    Paul Brown would go on to invent the face mask among other things.

    I've worn only Chucks for over 16 years straight. I had several pair throughout childhood too. If a pick up game starts when I'm around, I'm down to play in whatever shoes I have on, which are always Chucks now so, yeah. I might get a flat if someone steps on my shoe but, got no problem playing in them.
