My Cons are only 5 months old, and there's a hole in the sole!
What colour should I get next? I'm thinking yellow.
dare get a yellow pair of boots
whenever i wear my yellow tshirt my mood lifts. However, I can't wear a yellow tshirt every day, BUT I could wear yellow converse more or less every day, so therefor I'd be a happier, smilier, more efficient, more productive Monpot.
but being converse, they're washing machine-able, so that's not tooo much of a problem.
dont buy cons, theyre owned by the evil Nike corp
I have wanted yellow ones for ages. My dog has chewed my other cons so much they no longer have any backs. The dark red ones are really nice.
a gleaming white pair of reebok classics....the hooligans choice!
Cons and Con-like shoes tend to get worn away at the ball of the foot quite quickly (hence the name, maybe?). i bought one pair last October and BOTH shoes split almost simultaneously in the same place on the sole in December. i didn't have another pair and because it was always raining i had to walk around with plastic bags over my socks.
i like them
or if you can find them some adidas lendl...
leave the cons with holes in there and keep the shiny new colourful bowling shoes :)
I take it all back
they're not made by the same people anymore are they?
i bought some in the states three yrs ago, just yr standard navy-blue hi-tops, and they're still going very strong indeed. i don't wear em everyday but i've had a helluva lot of wear out of them.

trainers prison white

and the year before, and the year before that. They're a design classic!
I'm gay4converse, maybe I should finally get some crazy Japan ones.
some awesome converse when i was about 15...they were so padded and light i felt like i was running on air
But theyre a bit rubbish when
1)walking on cobbles
2)walking across any uneven terrain
3)when it's raining
4)when it's snowing
5)protecting your feet in general, unless it's from UV rays
I have a pair of white ones which have been recently washed after many a gig. and they're still decent. but i heart my brown ones with writing on them best.
but think of the cheapness...
they're rubbish on ice
I hope me making you walk 100 miles around London wasn't responsible for finishing off the old ones.
But I wouldn't have changed it for the world!
"as soon as i wake up, every night, every day,
i know that its you i need, to take my blues away"
It would rock!
I'm on my seventh pair of converses. For someone who spent 4 years working in shoeshops I'm an unimaginitive selecter of footwear. I want some yellow ones now. If you get some and I do, we can't wear them at the same time. I'll need some warning to plan alternatives...
or some leather ones <-- sensible choice.
as were the Mondrians. I found some really ace pinstripe ones through Rakuten once, but I've never been able to track them down since.
Nike Blazers or Adidas Nizzas - they're both very similar.
my Blazers have lasted since August 2004 and i wear them pretty much every day.
Get the yello ones!
I see Ben Warns all over the place.
You weren't around in the 70s. You don't know how hard it WAS to be cool back then!
