Back in October, U.S. Cavalry had a great idea: let our customers name the exclusive new shoe from Converse. Alas, there is good news and bad news.

The Good News: Our customers chose a really cool name, the Converse Tactical Taylors.

The Bad News: Because of licensing agreements and legal issues, yadda, yadda, yadda, we couldn't use this name. In fact, we couldn't use any name but the one Converse wanted.

While we are really peeved about this turn of events, it doesn't take away from the fact that we are offering our customers a great shoe, at a great price and we are still going to honor our contest promise.

The individuals that suggested the winning name (Tactical Taylor) are still going to get their free pair of shoes!
