? Richardson's shoes are indeed Chuck Taylors, but they are not the canvas ones. About a year ago, Converse put out a glove-leather "fashion" model of that 68-year-old shoe, and Richardson, who has an agreement with the company, is the first—and only—player in the NBA to wear it. "They're comfortable," says Richardson, who conforms to NBA regulations by wearing the white version in regular-season games. "I wore Chuck Taylors when I was a kid, and just because I'm a pro doesn't mean I can't wear them now." Incidentally, the leather Chucks retail for about $40; the canvas ones for about $25.—ED.
