Picked these 2 up a couple of days ago from a converse outlet.


Black leather mono hi tops, white leather mono lows. They'll serve me until i'm rich enough for CP. Even then, the leather on these is actually quite nice.

I'm thinking of getting some red converse oxes. Or purple, if I can find them.

^you might be able to make em on converse's site but you'll pay a lot more than a reg pair

You can try a model car paint stick. Company name is Testors. Its enamel based and shoud be available at any hobby shop.

Just superglued (Gorilla brand) the heels of my 11-yr-old MiUSA converse ox. I was getting water in! Now they're good.

I've picked up a few pair of "oddball" chucks from http://www.americanathletics.com/ . Between that and eBay, I seem to do alright with converse. I've got around 12 pairs in total.

Shit. I had about 8 pairs in the early 90s. My wife thought I was nuts. I probably was. Wish I'd hung onto them, but it was also kind of embarassing. I had weird colors that I wouldn't be caught dead in today. And too many high tops.

You can't buy the customized converse that you can order from the US website from Europe. I'm sad cuz the on stock colors just don't do it for me

I guess I'll play depressed and try to pick up a pair of purple Stan Smith on my way home from office.

Picked up my red lows today.
