  • If the amount of views that cute cat videos on YouTube get is any indication, it’s safe to assume most people love animals. Cuddly looking ones in particular.

    Long before Wiz Khalifa, Blake Lively, Avril Lavigne or Kurt Cobain made Converse their shoe of choice (P.S. Kurt Cobain was the singer for a punk group called Nirvana... they were pretty good, you should check them out) there were a select group of athletes, musicians, actors and proto-hipsters blazing a trail that leads directly to your feet.
