are the best trainers ever right?
but they are fucking shit when it rains!
it's slightly damp
you're playing footie
in the fog
but i still wear them because they're great
SOME vans are ok
when you are sitting at a football game in the winter. canvas is not insulating so end up having no toes at the end!!
but all my mate's think I'm a cunt for wearing white rude boy trainers.
they last WAY longer than other trainers. And I have ace retro bright pink ones. Which cost me Â£7 because no-one else in Footlocker wanted them.
are corporate whore shoes.
now that they're owned and made by nike.
nike own converse?
fuck. looks like i'm buying those fairtrade converse knockoffs from now on then, and flagelating myself as punishment for lining nike's corporate pockets...
but i have a pair that are older than some of the kids going to gigs these days. made before knight bought them out.
so thats ok
but im guilty:
goes right through those bloody holes that are meant to let your feet breathe or wahtever.
no sweat kicks ther arse all over the place
but I like them.
I bought red shoe laces for my white/cream ones. so they look better now.
Mine green pair are three years old and although grubby, they haven't falen apart.
So how the hell have people like Julien Casawhatshisface got such wrecked converse? They just don't break like that.
have ripped a little bit.
because i can't be bothered to undo shoelaces, i just force my feet into them.
i have to buy new pairs ALL the time!
I have three pairs.
Oh, the second pair I bought were black, and I cleaned the soles with a bit of bleach (don't ask...) and got some on the black fabric which turned it red!
So if you want modified converse...
cons own dunlop
but the rest are boring.
velcro dunlop flash, yo. Now they fall apart as you take them out the box.
But I keep on buying them
and they were FUCKED. the fabric was only held to the cole by a teensy bit of thread. it was ridiculous. i loved them though, they were 'lived in'.
But I've never seen them on sale anywhere respectble.
2 in fact so but my favourite ones cripple my feet, there clasic though cream and burgandy colour with a bowling shoe stripe down the back some times I just stare at them in awe.
did you purchase them from?
in cardiff in the year 2000
wasn't very helpful. Thank you.
but the soles wear down so quick that after three years you must have broken through the bottom, surely?
are shit converse boy
you're a square who cant handle green and brown together.
don't fucking insult my shoes!
its only the internet
50 squid for those ugly things?
you all stink
and have no taste
have better trainers
i also have brown converse which aren't made of dead children
we have better footwear and more money than you.
'airwalk are ultragash make your feet look the size of the isle of wight.'
No, having size 13 feet does that
I want some proper school plymsols but in adult size, black with elastic band colou souls.
You want to go to Woolies and then walk around with your feet smelling like tires?
I bet you want to do PE in your pants too, dont you?
it's all about clogs
lo-cut Adidas Kareem Abdul Jabbars in blue suede please.
that's where trainers are at. I've never owned 4 pairs of trainers in my life, I love having a disposable income
