2011 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter - Arrivals

Stars Love Their Chuck Taylors

The perfect footwear for walking the New York streets or Hollywood red carpets.

There's plenty of quibbling over whether stars truly are just like us, but in one thing we can be sure: Their affinity for Chuck Taylors transcends fame and fortune. Yes, those humble basketball sneakers made by Converse — rebranded into Chuck Taylor All-Stars in the 1920s after the Chicago shoe salesman who recommended a few style tweaks — are a perennial favorite of the celebrity set. Here, a sampling of the stars who have donned a pair of Chucks over the years. (Pictured: Actress Hailee Steinfeld at the Vanity Fair Oscar party in 2011.)
