Why ‘Stranger Things’ Star Wore Custom Chucks to the Emmys

16-year-old Stranger Things actor Gaten Matarazzo donned a pair of custom Chuck Taylors at the Emmy Awards on Monday night, using the spotlight to raise awareness for a rare genetic disorder.

The disorder, known as cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD), is a rare condition that affects the development of bones and teeth. Gaten himself suffers from the disorder, earlier revealing that he was born without collar bones, and still had many of his baby teeth well into his teens.

Gaten modified his Converse sneakers to rep his charity, CCD Smiles, which offers support to young people suffering from CCD.
