but how do you make them dirty without damaging them?

I don't think that would look good..I hope that this dosnt catch on!

I think Kate Moss looks good in that picture? Whats wrong with her outfit?

What do you think of the chequered Converse? I think they only suit guys, but I'm not a very big fan of those.

I don't really care if they're a trend or not. If they were the trendiest shoes in the world (which they are on the way to becoming) I'd still wear them. If they were considered the ugliest shoes in the world, I'd still wear them.

I own 5 pairs..I want to get the tourquise ones MK has and purple ones.

Who are the Richards?

Oh I didn’t know you could get coloured chequered Converse..



I like it when guys wear their Converse with a 'casual' suit. But so far I have only seen it on 'celebs'. Like where would a guy dressed in a suit and Converse go? hmmmm...The guy in the Mariah Carey video "We belong together" is sporting this 'trend', and here is a pic of Orlando Bloom with Converse and a suit. Looking mighty fine as always.




Not a lot of people have stated what they wear their Converse with? With everything or just a few items of clothing? And which colour Converse do you own?



Me...I have just bought a pair, and they’re the black ones. Gotta be a little safe first. I would love to own a white pair and also a camouflage pair. But I'm gonna get use out of my black ones first. With the camouflage and white, there is not alot that would go with them. What do you think would go with them? (BTW-the white ones are different shoes to the camouflage. Just in case you were thinking they're the same shoe!)

a whole different animal...
more of a 'skater' look than a 'punk' look...
but also cool in a different way...

i just think it's a great way for a teen or young twenty something who doesn't have a lot of $$$ to spend to look 'cool'...

it's pretty simple really......
i can't wear them myself...but i like the way they look on others....
i personally think they look HIDEOUS with a dress or skirt...
makes your feet look like boats...

i like them best with jeans or cropped pants...
even leggings and a skirt is better than just a skirt....

But it's a bit ironic when I see kids who are anti almost everything and are against multi nationals, but end up wearing their Converse with pride.... Converse no longer have a message. Now it's just a pair of trendy, comfortable and beautiful shoes.
the converse chuck taylor was developed in 1917 and was the first sneaker to be MASS produced in the united states .....its also one of the highest selling sneakers of all time...i think it is silly to say the shoe is a "way to rebel against the society of consumption." its an easy shoe that everyone owns....a classic,an icon ... and yes has many different 'faces' but anti- consumer ?, that is -

I always think that the black pairs, particularly black leather, go really well with jeans. I also think that the white canvas goes really well with black or dark grey/blue suits, although I prefer white canvas slip ons to converse.

I guess it goes with the subversive image, but its odd that its the 'wrong' shoes for each outfit. Black leather with jeans and white canvas with a suit.

The richards as in daughters of Keith Richards from the rolling stones. They do modelling and are bit known for their fashion sense there's a thread on them in the star style thread.

I love my converse hi-tops, but I've been looking for these converses that come up to the knee (the girl kneeing down with the green tank has them on)



I've been looking everywhere for them, any one know where I can find those?!?

I saw them at Up Against The Wall a while back, they had the all-leather ones and camoflouge, but they weren't cheap. They might still be on Converse.com or try Zappos.com
