FYI, Journey's now has clear Chucks again. I know they were sold out for a while, but it looks like they're now back in stock!
I'll say that I wore the pair I bought for a solid month, and they now have tears on the inner sides. Most of the canvas Chucks I have owned have split from the rubber at the same spot, but the plastic is just not as flexible as the fabric.
So, should I be a dope and buy another pair while they're still available?
