29 Things You Didn't Know About Punk Style

Everyone thought the Ramones only wore Chuck Taylors, but they actually preferred Keds.

The Ramones created the basic uniform for punk fashion: motorcycle jacket, shrunken T-shirt, torn-up skinny jeans, and sneakers. It is well-known that their jackets were Perfecto jackets by Schott and their jeans were Levi's. However, it's an urban legend that the Ramones only liked Chuck Taylors. On their first album cover in 1976, the group wore their preferred sneaker brand: Keds. But when that particular style of Keds went out of production in the U.S., the Ramones were forced to switch to the cheap and readily available Chuck Taylors.
