I know this probably doesn't deserve it's own thread but I don't care.
I used to rock Converse when first started playing basketball in the early 90s. I only rocked Converse because it's all we could afford because Nike was damn expensive. It used to represent something. It's all I used to buy up until 1998 (93-98).
Then, they got bought out.
And now? I hate seeing hipsters wear Converse trying to make them cool. They were like the Public Enemy of running shoes. They were ANTI-Running shoes. It makes me so sad to see what happened to them.
