Share your thoughts on Converse sneakers

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I know alot of people around here don't like Converse because they are so common, etc. But, I am about to be a mommy of two under 3 yrs old and I am not one to run around in heels because well, that doesn't work for me. So, I am looking to get a pair of canvas sneakers to wear with my jeans, etc that are cute, but not too EMO because that's not me either. Anyways, I haven't owned a pair of Converse all stars in about 10 years!

Here are the two I am looking at:

1. Converse lo's in Charcoal:

or

2. Jack Purcell's in Navy (I like the white but they would never stay clean)

Never owned Jack Purcell's. Heard they were pretty comfy, but wasn't sure. SO, your thoughts are welcome. Thanks!

To me, Chucks will always be a no-fail, grab-when-I-need-to-run-around-in-something-comfy pair of shoes. I've loved them since I was a kid & I still do now. I like that I can wear them with just about anything... shorts, a skirt, a dress, and of course, jeans.

The Purcell's are nice but I love the Converse's more.

I don't wear chucks. I dont have anything against it, I just dont wear them anymore.
i wear asics onitsuka or vans. they have more choices when it comes to designs/colors.

i like them both, but i prefer jacks. chucks make my foot look longer (i wear an 8.5 and i'm only 5'2")

Nothing special

They look like Keds. You can find something at Wal-Mart for a lot less than Converse.

I used to wear red All-Stars in college

i don't like the toes on the purcells...reminds me of young kids shoes. i like converse....like sillywahine said, they're the go-to shoes for when you don't want to think. i don't know what it is about converse, but even if they're the white ones with red and blue detailing or the black/white versions....they go with EVERYTHING. whereas my other sneaks that are wayyy more itneresting are just so hard to match.

i guess what i like is that they're not blah, but at the same time they don't overpower the outfit.
