    whoa, weird. I swear at the time of my post those Purcell classics were up on zappos. they must have put them up too early, then took them down or something. went to look at them again just now and they're not there.

    i just noticed my pair of cons (ctas pro) has 7 pairs of eyelets, do they add an extra when you go beyond US 11 or something? even the exact pair on converse's site has 6.

    I have a pair. Black lows. I really like them. They're super comfy.

    Has anyone seen these around? I found these at a thrift store, they havent been worn, they have leather on the outside and a plaid pattern lining the inside. Just curious if anyone has any info about these.

    I just received the Chuck 2's today. I've been wearing Chucks for over 15 years. These new ones feel quite a bit more snug than the same size old style Chucks. Is that what other people are experiencing? I may head over to Nordstrom to exchange for 1/2 size up.

    Converse site finally was absorbed by Nike. Horrendous site. I wonder if they will change their offerings now that the Nike move is final

    Ive been looking for this pair with no luck. First got them in 2013, they have a padded tongue & collar. Any help finding these?

    I noticed Converse is the unofficial footwear of choice for a lot of high schoolers. Should a grown man avoid wearing the garden variety kind of Converse and opt for the more upscale versions that look more mature?

    Umm, hasn't this been the case for 30+ years?

    I personally like the low profile JP shoes with monochrome laces/tongue.

    Anyway, it depends on your style. Grown men can pull off cons without a problem
