Converse… please don’t go

21 May

Lately it seems like everywhere I look there is a pair of Converse on sale. This possibly means that the demand for the big C is going down and that the trend is waning. This makes me really sad. The same thing happened with Docs in the early nineties and then skate shoes in the early millennium. Personally, I never stopped loving Docs or skate shoes. I still feel like they have a legitimate place in everyday fashion. For instance, what could be more punk rock than wearing a frilly dress and Docs in a contrasting color to your prom? And what says summer more than a basic white tee, a cool pair of shorts and some classic Vans? So I say even if the Converse trend is waning don’t go throwing out your Chucks just because your friends are sporting gladiator sandals or booties. If you love something and it makes you feel good, then wear it. I love Converse and I’m gonna wear them ’til I die.

In this spirit I’ve included the raddest pair of Converse that I’ve seen in a while and they are on a super sale so they’re probably going to sell out fast. Also, I like the shirt in yellow for this outfit but I’m posting the grey because that’s the only full pic they’ve got. Oh, and the shirt should be a little oversized so when the belt is worn at the natural waist it cinches it all in. Outfit total cost = $126

Serious bonus points to whoever can guess why I thought of this running sketch from SNL when I was writing today’s post.

        Converse are fabulous. They are a great tennis shoe because they don’t make my feet hot like all the rest of them. May converse never die, in the name of all that is neat and stuff.

        Exactly! I can’t handle hot feet and Converse let my feet breathe.
