    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...

    I Can'T Get Rid Of Them

    I have been wearing converse for the last 10 years, I still have the same ones from 8th grade, they are so comfy! I can't believe they still fit and haven't fallen apart, but I seriously love them, I can't wear them every day because I know they will wear out. No, I'm not a...

    Not Only Because of the Comfort...

    Things can never be simple with me. I can't just say - I like them because they're comfy (which I do, and they are.) Things have to be tangled. I have liked these shoes since back in the 80s when I was in elementary school. The fad back then was to buy the most ghastly color you...

    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...

    "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!

    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 always liked the look of converse shoes, though I liked them on other people, like my wife, who makes them look really sexy (Yes, sexy, don't know why, they just are...). Either way, she got me to buy a pair of lo-top chucks...my first pair I'd ever owned, I love them, they are...

    Classic!

    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 :)

    I Heart My Chucks

    I really wish I had found chucks earlier. I have been wearing them since I was 15 and I swear to God they are the only shoes I have ever found that I can pair with every outfit and look BETTER the OLDER and more WORN they become, could there be any other shoe this good?

    I Want More

    I love my converse. I started wearing converse when I was 14, they were red high tops and I though they went really well with my black school trousers. A few months after that I bought black ones. Now I have about 7 different pairs, in colours Green, Blue, Red, Navy/white...

    New Chucks

    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...
