WTB: Converse by Varvatos All-Stars (8.5-9)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Looking for Varvatos Chucks in size 8.5 (or 9 for low-profile styles)... not interested in slip-ons or multi-eyelet styles, but will look at pretty much anything else. Hit me up if you have any or happen to see them on sale anywhere in my size. Thanks. Particularly interested in the following styles: Black garment dye low-profile high-tops Black rubber-coated high-tops Black leather vintage (these were on Gilt a while back) ...or anything along these lines.

You might want to check out your local discounter, seen these at a few places around me including Marshalls for less then $20/pair

Be careful with the low-profile ones, they run more true to size than regular chucks. I got them in a 7 on sale from Blackbird and fell in love with them, but they were far smaller than my size 7 regular chucks and crushed my toes I thought about grabbing them off zappos after that, but I waited too long and alas, they disappeared. I got these Tretorns in eggnog instead, which I love, but the black ones don't have that pretty black/white contrast. http://www.zappos.com/product/7433932/color/130952

I have a pair of the rubber coated in 8's, and they're basically the perfect version of the black high-top chucks. The rubberized canvas turns into an off-black/grayish color, which is a great contrast with the dark black leather laces. They also come with white leather laces, but my shoes got covered in white specks when I tried to put them on. Also, the rubber coating will most likely rub off from the tongue due to the lacing. Despite that, I highly recommend them.

Those rubber-coated high-tops just popped up on eBay in my size, but at retail BIN. Messaged the seller, but he won't go lower than $125
