I've worn both and don't think that there is any real difference in comfort, unless you remove the JV insole and put in one that's actually good. In fact, I prefer the chucks insole b/c over time it takes on the shape of your foot. As far as materials being crap - chucks are just rubber and canvas - how can this be crap, and how can JV's, made from the same materials, in China, be considered any better? But whatever, if people want to pay double b/c some dude put his imprimatur on a classic, more power to them.

Well I paid only 39 dollars for them at the Saks outlet. I would never pay $95.00 for them. I didnt buy them because of the name.

The materials are better and construction is better. I was a teenager once, I've worn out plenty of Chuck Taylors to tell the difference. I'm not saying JV x Chucks are the bees knees of sneakers, because they aren't, I'm just saying Converse Chuck Taylors are absolute POS that are no better than K-Mart sneakers. JV use better leathers, thicker canvases, and are lined. Not great materials on either, but they win by default. As to the cost: Twice as much? Who cares? They are around $100, and still cost less than most Nikes or Reebok. Comfort: I have no idea what to tell you. Chuck Taylors are the most uncomfortable shoe I've ever owned. Again I'm not saying JV is super comfortable or anything, but again they win by default. And for the record I own both Converse and JV Converse, but wear neither. I'm far from a JV x Converse fanboy.

I was wondering exactly what did you meant by "beeswaxed" them...?
