    They are my new obsession, but there prices have been going up really high..... I remember they used to be 30$ and now they're 59 (at Foot Lockers), guess I need to thank Nike. :rolleyes:

    I am planning on getting these :

    The low ones in :

    -Royal blue
    -Green
    -White

    The hi ones in:

    -Black
    -Grey
    -Royal blue
    -Green
    -Pink

    Did anyone notice that the quality of the newer ones are really bad. I think the two worst things that could ever happen to Converse was to move its production to Asia to lower the costs and to sell the company to Nike....

    Converse was bought out by Nike about a year or so ago, that why their prices keep going up.
    I've been wearing these sneakers for years and I love them because they go well with so many different outfits, but for long walks I wouldn't suggest them. They seem really comfortable at first, but if your walking for a couple of hours or more, they don't offer the best support.

    In the last couple of weeks I have become completely obsessed with these, I know own the shorts in:
    -turqoise
    -off white
    -lime green
    -navy

    I think they are really versatile shoes, and beyond comfortable.

    I remember when they were less than $20. This is getting ridiculous. I don't even like them anymore. But I thought they were pretty cool in elementary school. I had three or four pairs.

    tazmanian devil!!!!

    When I was in elementary school I had a pair of converse with the tazmanian devil character embroidered on beside the logo...I thought I was pretty damn cool. I got over the converse thing but I still enjoy them on those who pull off the alternative-punk look well.

    but I think that they are in the same category as keds....I remember when keds were EXTREMELY uncool, and 15 bucks for the real ones, too (converse were cool, but cheap).....I took a look at some keds the other day as a joke and I was horrified to find they were selling for sixty freaking dollars! dear lord. and they havent changed much at all. I just dont get it...were keds bought out by someone else as well? a thin rubber sole, some canvas material, some elastic and a little plastic blue tab....my.

    Nike overprices EVERYTHING. imo. It is tragic they got their hands on Converse.
