I got my new All Stars in the mail today. I've been wearing Converse All Stars in one form or another since seventh grade. I love the shoe. To me, it's just the ideal form of comfortable footwear. It feels like I'm bear foot. That being said, if you like to keep your feet warm and dry, All Stars are not the shoe for you. But if you like to be comfortable, with a semi-retro flare, they're just the ticket.
I've custom made my last two pairs of Chucks. I like 'em brown, but they're not sold that way in the stores. It costs a little more, but I think it's worth it. Here's the pair I got in the mail today compared to my old pair.
Yeah, it was definitely time for a new pair.
