I know Chuck Taylor shoes can be addicting considering its having a variety of cool and stylish designs, both common and personalized, but I didn’t think it to be sooo addicting I would have close to 1,000 pairs.
Well, meet Joshua Mueller of Lakewood, Washington (USA). The guy holds the largest collection of Chuck Taylor shoes in the world with 680 unique pairs, as of March 3, 2007, making it to Guinness Book of World Records.
Mueller, a professional Artist, started his collection of Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star shoes in 1991 by getting a pair of Pine Green Low-Tops and continued acquiring more each year. A few months ago, Josh stated in his Flickr account (where he posts photos of his collection) that it’s 70 pairs away from 1,000. Wooow. He also stated that he never wear the same pair twice. Well looks like two pairs a day won’t make him wear ALL pairs within a year!
Josh Mueller was also featured in 2007 Ripley’s Belive It or Not! as one of the contestants with the most unbelievable story.
