Don't like them, never have, never will, They just seem so amazingly unappealing to me, but hey whatever floats your boat.

Ok, of-topic....just a Q for ms-Diorella, but what's that in the mouth of that girl in your avatar, it looks like something I can't say on this forum

I guess it depends on your style, really.
If you're into the rock star look, a pair of converse seems like an important asset no matter what the time or trend. They have to be grungy though.
I suppose though, as far as trends go (and since this is the "Trend" section of tFS), I think they're finished.
I knew it once I started seeing the 8th graders around my neighbourhood wearing them.

I'm not a fan (I wear heels all the time anyway).
used to wear them when I was younger, but not for the sake of "trend"
I never thought they were hot, and don't see them being over
more of a classic I'd say

They're classics...people who are getting them now for trendiness...whatev.

Everyone from street spraypainters to John Varvatos puts their own twist to em.

I have a few pairs and I'm actually wearing my classic very grungy black ones right now. I rarely wear sneakers(I wear mostly stilettos and sandals) but when I do I usually reach for one of my converse first before trying on any others I have.

Like a lot of you I thought they were just ...just unappealing and the red ones reminded me of clown/Ronald McDonald shoes. Then I tried a pair on.

I basically hate everything that is worn for the sak of trend....just wear things you like to wear not because other people like it when you wear them!

I had a pair when I was in 3rd grade

Forgot to add, do. I never knew they were trendy I was ahead of that trend by a few years

I hate how people are viewing these as fads instead of as classics which is what they really are. People around here have also been saying that they are a trend that are on their way out. I say screw that! I love how all of these old school style of sneakers are back in stores (not necessarily just converse allstars). I guess that means I can stock up on some old favourites once this "trend" is on its way out and everything will be on sale.

I agree with the 'classic so who cares if it's trendy' thoughts...

Although, for myself, I prefer the Converse One Star.
