After a hundred years and over eight-hundred million pairs sold, it’s safe to say that there is an incarnation of the Chuck Taylor for anything and everything.

Case in point, these metallic hued women’s Chuck Taylors. On the surface, they’re the same concept, the iconic sneaker, featuring a leather upper in shiny, metallic chrome or gold. But that’s where the stories diverge.

The chrome hi-tops are reminiscent of the retro space age idea, the notion that the near future would be a more advanced model of an exact moment in time, tamed and shaped by the familiar objects around us.   The gold lo-tops are redolent of flash, go-go excess, where even every day objects like sneakers are demonstrations of grandeur.

Whatever story you care to attach to them, these metallic versions of the Chuck Taylor are sure to be the bold, fashion forward focal point of any outfit.
