I don't own a pair of these, and never have. Will I die a cold and empty shell of a man ?
you can stop now!
I need some trainers.
I do have a pair! Theyre pink and I decided i was a fucking idiot straight after I bought them.
Its ok guys, crisis over.
pleased to meet you
I've nearly bought pink shoes so many times.
Otherwise I will too.
although i haven't worn my current ones for at least 3 months.
they are too narrow for my feet
or my feet are too fat for converse
FAT FOOT... FAT FOOT!!
an obsession with taking the piss out of people with abnormal feet don't you?
but i do have some cheap imitation ones that fit lovely
or did til the sides split
'thin shoe' myself
But that's not much of an insult.
try it out.
did they ever call you that at school?
We'll die cold and empty together.
See you on my deathbed.
.....possibly by an emo band. Or death metal.
"8 candy canes dont make a christmas fare"
"i was a pub lout"
I didn't own a pair until I was 30.
She told me I should. I haven't looked back. Or something. :D
They were at least 30. :)
...see indepth debate on morals of owning/being associated with Nike footware: http://www.drownedinsound.com/articles/1351461
they just look like a badly laced up pair of converse with a white circle.
I used to have some, ugly as crap.
No sweat converse are much nicer
my second link is better, theyre made of hemp I think, they will last longer than cotton.
They're made of hemp and recycled car tyre, I believe.
Plus adbusters are total hypocrites anyway. Adbusters; anti-branding, yeah, so let's create a brand of shoe!
I used to be into the whole Adbusters/No logo thing.
I generally agree with their message, but it's run by complete idiots.
I just wanted some shoes that were fairly made. I like them - they're better made and more durable than I've found Converse to be anyway. My feet are fucking massive they were never really going to work for me.
they are anti branding because of the damage some companies do, I dont see anything hypocritical in creathing a brand if the company is genuinely ethical. I am a bit suspicious of adbusters mainly because if you can buy it in whsmiths they must be comprimising somewhere I dunno enough about them though.
All that culture jamming stuff is about fighting against having brands and advertising rammed down your throat all the time.
They've created the Blackspot brand as a recognisable name for fairly made shoes, but the brand identity isn't being rammed down your throat.
and they do last.
You are just too in love with your Nike and bling to appreciate it, Robyn! :-p
i rest my case.
not very comfy
do you applaud me?
i wouldn't wear them, anyway. this is BRITAIN. it's WET.
Safety is something that a lot more people should look for in trainers.
do NOT tar me with that brush ~_~
a pair of converse. Covered in neon paint.
I only got them cos they were cheap.
they last about a year before they die with holes in.
for a year and a half and they're fine.
Stop wearing them in my sleep.
and some replica red ones, which i love, but i need to get some shoes, today, before i go away, but i hate buying shoes, and they hate me and converse are too narrow, but i fight through it and get a blisters one my little toes
i want some brown shoes
I never have had converse. I feel no less of a woman.
My current trainers are dunlop red flash, velcrotastic and just 15
in my head, my feet don't look right. I have about 6 pairs.
which are ace. Except they're all dirty from being splashed by puddles.
About clean cons.
'clear' cons and thought wow I want some
i put bleach on them
it didn't look as good as i had hoped but ok
and, yes, i wear them with a suit. i don't care, im so anti-anti-fashion that i become anti-fashion-fashion again.
I fly in the face of indie conventionalism.
CHECK ME OUT.
I own some, I would know. (malcolm in the middle also wears them, F'real).
reese and dewey and francis also wear them.
about midway down, NSFW.
you're obviously some kind of high-top freak.
high-tops R NO GD
it's just that kind of a word.
She meant good, I meant bad.
Wack always means bad.
wack can mean good
You're clearly crazy.
It clearly means bad, all the time.
it was like wearing slippers.
Support your feet properly
shoes are boring.
IN YOUR FACE, GUNTRIP!
wearing converse since i was 8 or something.
not the same pair, mind.
how old they are since converse are now owned buy nike
pf flyers, they're way better. I bought a pair today.
This is my most "succesfull" thread. Well done, me.
but never fear, I really need some shoes that are not converse and are not lame. I have been looking in shoe shops and stuff and it seems that all shoes are CRAP
I really don't want converse. give me nice shoes, kplzthnx
then i can sell them and buy good ones
plus, in retrospect, they are lame, despite being yellow :(
is adidas lame?
and i got my hair cut like yours
i love you
Well, probably not really. I think I'll pass. Thanks anyway!
just thought you might want a souvenir ;)
This is what converse trainers are:
i have a budget of £30. i would actually buy them if they were under £30.
with your orange coat.
