Part of what makes our job exciting is that we get to bring in new brands and new technology to our store. We were the first in the area to carry Hot Chillys, Under Armour, Herschel Bags, Barbour Outerwear, Down gloves, waterproof iPhnoe cases, mismatched socks for men, etc. We like to believe that we are trendsetters. However, on some occasions, rare occasions, we follow the trend (especially if our customers ask for something).
Now let’s talk sneakers… Can you think of the most iconic sneaker of all time? Yup, the converse Chuck Taylor. After almost 100 years the Converse All Star is one of the best looking sneakers on the market. Originally seen on the basketball court, this canvas sneaker is worn by rock and roll stars, rebels, businessmen and people that work at The Berkshire General Store. We recently added the line to our sneaker department and hope to carry the brand for the next 100 years.
