Converse seem to be making a comeback around here. They used to be stereotyped here a few years ago.. but now everyone's wearing them. I do like how timeless they've proved to be, and look very easy to wear. I'm wanting a navy pair, the low-cut ones, like the black above.

Anyone had a problem with the sizing? I tried some last week and I had to ask for two sizes down. Their fitting was massive, way too big for me.

I'm between a EU36 and EU37 and the 36.5 in Converse fit me perfectly so I would say they're true to size for me :p

I've been noticing more people around here wearing Converse again, too. That's nothing unusual, they make a comeback every spring. What's weird is that most of them proudly wear them looking all polished and brand new, that's something people used to frown upon I still prefer for my All Stars to look a little worn and beat up, though.

I've owned numerous pairs of converse. I love it when they get all worn. I never like to up keep them. They are so comfortable, I've never had a problem with the sizing however my most recent pair was slightly bigger then I was used too.

My experience has been that the quality control in regards to sizing is pretty "relaxed"; two pairs marked the same size may fit differently. In general, I'd say they usually run 1/2 to 1 full size larger than marked. But I've also had pairs that were true to size.

Completely agree. I've worked super hard to get mine to have the perfect worn look. This past Christmas, I was gifted a pair of fresh, white converse because mine were "all worn and dirty" .. I was all

^ Awesome! I specifically bought white converse because I liked how they looked when dirty and worn.
