    My Best Fit

    I've tried all kinds of shoes in all price ranges and Converse just fit me the best. I love my Cons! Lucky for me I live near a Converse outlet store, and since I wear a bit of an unusual size they often have shoes for me on clearance. Now I don't wear regular All Stars anymore...

    I get a new pair at the beginning of Spring.  I have 3 pairs that are still wearable, but I think I'd like to get a white pair for this summer. Love how these look and they are so comfortable.  I remember I got my first pair on a whim.  We were at the shore one year and my...

    Kind Of And Appreciation Thing

    I've been wearing Converse sneakers for years, and each time I had to trash them I felt bad, so I started a blog dedicated to dead Converse sneakers called AllWasted.com where I'm sharing a pair of sneakers before they go to trash each week :) and I'm always looking for...

    Found the Coolest Pair!

    I love converse anyway as i have found that they are the comfiest casual trainers ever. So many different styles and colours, you can pretty much find a pair to go with any outfit! I came across a really really cool pair in a designer discount store. They are white high tops with...

    Can't Let Go

    I've had one lovely pair of chucks for about 7 years now. I've purchased other converse shoes but I just can bear to part with my chucks. The rubber has turned a light brown and cracked. So now when it rains, I end up with a wet foot. I know I should get rid of them but they're...

    Gotta Love 'em

     I have black high-tops (but of course!), grey low-tops, and brown low-tops. Used to have pink low-tops and white high-tops which I dyed and colored on. I recently had to buy new black high-tops because my old ones were 6 years old and pretty darn dead at this point. I love...

    I Love Converse!

    The first time I saw a girl wearing converse I fell in love! They were white low tops and since then I've never had a girlfriend (or wife) that was not wearing them the first time I saw them. After that, I buy them loads! They're so sweet and sexy. To this day, white low tops are...

    Honoring Their Memory

    I got my first pair of Chuck Taylors when I was 12. They were standard black hightops and I was mad about them. I wore them every single day... I was poor and they were all I had. Wow, those shoes had seen some wild times. Rock concerts and strange cars and rainy bus stops at...

    "pretty Converse"

    I found a pair of converse "made in use" shoes and they say "Pretty Converse" on them. Has anyone ever seen these before. I'm trying to figure out if they are authentic and/or vintage??? Any info would greatly be appreciated!

    I have probably 7-8 pairs of Chucks (I'm

    guessing because I lost count). The one pair I really love has flames on them, and I've had them since I was a sophomore in high school (17 years). My latest pair are black leather with fleece lining....so comfortable.

    A Converse outlet store recently opened near my house (so freaking happy about that) so I had to make sure I visited during the grand opening weekend. This past Sunday (7/15), I got the chance to go and I swear it wasn't the happiest I've been all summer. The store smelled new...

    They Might Be Difficult Sometimes, But I Love Them

    I own I think 4 pairs of Chucks. I don't know what happened to my first pair, they were so worn out they probably disintegrated. I climbed a mountain in them twice (not the smartest idea, they had no tread left), and basically just lived in them. I've had a few pairs since then...

    They are so comfortable. I wear them with dresses, with skirts, with just boyshorts, with nothing else! I want to get other colours, basketball boots like my red ones!

    Converse will never go out of style! They are so comfortable. Available to both men and women. Good quality. I love to draw on them. I hope that converse will be around even when I'm an old lady :)
