Default Converse

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.

Yeah, because now it's ugly.

But when it's really the only basketball shoe you can afford, it was awesome. My parents loved the fact that it was like 39.99 for the pair.

It meant something else.

Chuck Taylor's and skinny jeans for my boys. Not my favourite look, but they love it.

I wore turquoise Chuck Taylors when I played on the basketball team in grade 7. I think I bought them for skateboarding. Anyway, I was made fun of quite harshly.

Not on the court though. I'd like to see some semi-insane NBA guy wear those. I wonder if they'd even be allowed.

i like Converse allstars.

they are a classic look.

i don't like the fact that they cost $50 when they should be closer to the $30 mark, but i get mine at Footlocker in dixie mall where they are actually sold for $30.
