    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...

    Mine Are Red!

    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!

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 :)
