I’ve wanted a pair of Converse All-Stars my entire life. When I was younger, they were out of our price range, and then when I got to the point that I could afford them, I sorta forgot about my desire.
Then, I saw a pair at the shoe store when I was replacing my 7 year old sneakers. I instantly fell in love, and bought them, not caring what anybody else in the world thought. Can a 32 year old man wear shoes like this and not look foolish? Uh, well, since it’s me we’re talking about, foolishness isn’t really on my no-no list, so it didn’t matter. As it turns out, however, everybody seems to love them.
Oh, and I always assumed they’d be terribly uncomfortable, since they have no arch support, or fancy new-age design. I was sooooo wrong. These shoes are amazingly comfortable. More comfortable than any shoes I’ve ever owned. Ever. They really are amazing, and I can’t picture a time in my future I won’t own a pair. 🙂
My Chuck Taylor, Converse All-Stars. These are the coolest shoes on the planet. I just thought you should know. 🙂
