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?
>>
I'm personally not a fan of the high tops, and the lows are overplayed anyway
>>
Dubs decide what I draw on my converse
>>
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)
>>
>>10915390
All black looks dumb and white gets dirty too easy (I do like them, but they're too much work).

I'm mostly asking about the silhouette though
>>
I've owned a few pairs of high tops and what I've found is they look better when they're not on your feet. When you actually have to wear them and lace them up they look goofy to me. Idk.
>>
>>10915302
I think they're too narrow
>>
>>10915401
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?
>>
>>10915394
>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
>>
>>10915302
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.
>>
>>10915409
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.
>>
>>10915302

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.
>>
>>10915416
I thought you wanted your white ones to be dirty to get a nice grungy look
>>
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?
>>
>>10915835
they are literally 70s chucks with shitty internet fashion diffusion line branding

pass
>>
>>10915835
size down. and get the ones with a small heart because the big hearts look like shit
>>
>>10915835
>>10915839
>>10915844
it'd be quite a bit cheaper to just but normal chucks and stitch your own heart on there, if you could find one.
>>
>>10915844
i was thinking so too, thanks dawg

>>10915860
yeah thats true
>>
>>10915860
Nobody is going to to that.
>>
>>10915890
i've seen numerous people on /fa/ do it.
>>
>>10915835
>that big heart
>that white stitching

did they ever shit the bed
>>
>>10915978
white stitching on the lows look aight
>>
I found some converses like the ones in OPs pic but the white parts are a little worn and there's a zipper in the back of the shoe. I can get them for like $20. Should I?

The white ones, all white ones, 70s and a couple of the collabs look good to me, they have to be beat up though, I really dig the silhouette
>>
The old CDG Play or Chuck II look better.

How does everyone feel about the new Alphas? Cop or not?

A big ol' super s stussy symbol in whiteout fluid.

classic canvas black high top chucks are the best. not all black. new they look like shit, broken in they look better. the new chucks they came out with look weird.
>>
Does anybody here own the newish Chuck II's?
>>
>>10915552
Only city grime looks good on chucks. Only the smoggy type really.

Dirt and other crap make them look terrible.
>>
>>10917300
I have a new pair of chuck 2s all white. Whats up breh
>>
>>10917313
Hows the fit compared to the originals?
>>
>>10917315
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.

>>10917326
Would it be safe to order the same size as the originals then?
>>
>>10917340
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.

Am I a faggot if i dont like converse?

Fag if you do, fag if you dont

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.
>>
>>10919194
They're much more comfortable than normal chucks imo
>>
>>10919718
where'd you get them from?

>>10919730
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.
>>
>>10919769
yeah, there's no local stores around here where i could find them and i wear a size 12 in converse.
