Custom classics: Converse brings free 'Chucks By You' to the Galleria

HOUSTON -- The Converse sneaker company has a deal at the Galleria now until Christmas: Bring a new pair of Chuck Taylor All Stars - doesn't matter where you bought them - and Converse artists will bedazzle them with different color laces, grommets (the holes for laces) and aglets (the plastic tips at the end of laces). Then, you can put shiny beads, lightning bolts, stars, slogans, original drawings or anything else on your Chucks. Let your imagination and individuality go wild. As Madonna (who's known to wear Cons) once said: express yourself.

It's called "Chucks By You," and the Galleria is one of only four malls in America offering free customization of your sneakers. The pop-up shop is on the lower level of Galleria II. It's right in the middle and big and busy - you can't miss it.

Slap sparkles and stickers on Chuck Taylor All Stars? While we're at it, give me a Magic Marker and I'll draw a mustache on the Mona Lisa.
