Are high top converses cool? I'm really having a hard time figuring out if they look good or not.
Sometimes they look good to me but I remember in high school I had a pair and they looked like clown shoes. I wear size 11s so it's not like I have huge feet or anything but they just looked too narrow. Is it just a perspective thing?
The all white or all black ones are cool.
Logo subdued ones. The classic white ones are an honorable mention (as opposed to the all white ones)
Prefer simple colorways (white, black, tan) other than loser/hypebeast colors (like green and red)
OP here. This is exactly how I feel. But could that just be because when they're not on your feet you're looking at them from a different angle? So they'd look good to everyone else except you?
>all black looks dumb
They are great for rainy days and days when you would get your white ones dirty.
As for the normal white ones (the ones with the red stripe) I've had a pair since early 2014 and I just wash them in the wash on cold (alone) and they hold up just fine and are not yellow.
Best 50 dollar shoe I ever bought
I think they look good because it's the sort of shoe you actually wear.
I don't buy for a second any dude walking around in stiff leather sole shoes that isn't for work. shit's uncomfortable, annoying, and only looks good when you over dress.
converse is as close as we'll ever have to a school uniform. looks good because you're not begging for attention.
It isn't just the angle IMO. I considered that too but I began looking at how they look laced up on other people and have concluded they still look a bit goofy. I'm sure there are some lucky people out there who can pull the look off but I haven't seen one of them yet.
If anyone knows a way to attain the "loose fitting" look with converse or hightops in general please chime in.
Converse always look shit, new. Its when you break them in and they become dirty is when it becomes fashionable.
Even then, if you think they're fashionable like that then you probably just wear a pair of jeans with a plain old shirt or band t-shirt.
they're iconic. everyone has a pair, like adidas. so they're not "fashionable" or "unfashionable" by themselves, because theyre so ubiquitous, it depends entirely on what you wear them with.
for those saying they fit like shit clown shoes; why are you buying anything other than the 70s originals? or course your cheap mall-tier converse are going to fit like shit.
and this should be obvious, but avoid garish ugly colours/patterns
as for these bad boys? i think they look pretty cool, i just dont wanna look like a fucking tryhard, because im really not. :/ also i wear a 10.5 but they dont have half sizes so if i got these should i go up or down?
How does everyone feel about the new Alphas? Cop or not?
I have a new pair of chuck 2s all white. Whats up breh
Fit is more tight, it has a real sole like a real shoe so its comfy.
Just checked the sizes, they are the same between originals and IIs. Fit is definately different.
I've never tried any athletic activity in them. People who run in them say its possible but not preferable. I regularly lift in my original chucks but never really run in them.
Yes. I went ahead and went across and checked my size against both shoes. They are the same.
Of course I would never recommend buying a shoe online without trying it on first unless it was a replacement pair.
Like a postman with tourettes, I fucking deliver
Just ordered these. I really like the minimalist design with the black stitching and the lack of stripe on the sole. I've also really warmed up to the CDG Play logo and prefer it over the Converse logo of the Chucks/Chucks II.
Is there any difference between these and the cheapo Chucks (my last pair from a department store). Are they better built, more comfortable, etc or is the only difference their appearance?
I have the low top creams with the small heart and they look fantastic in person. I'm sure the high tops would look good as well.
I live in the Bay Area and was able to cop them from a b&m called Azalea Boutique in size 10 for 100. Couldn't find them anywhere else in my size online besides Grailed, where people were selling beat up ones for 110.
