What's the consensus around here on the Converse Addicts? Just saw an article about them on Gilt Manual. The Vibram sole looks awesome, as I always find that Chuck's hurt my feet when I wear them pounding the pavement here in NY. End up mostly rocking my Sambas for more support, and the John Varvatos somehow seem a bit played to me.

Does anyone have the Addicts? Does anyone know when they'll be available here besides buying on eBay?

Thanks fashion experts!

I wear Chuck Slims with a 3/4 Superfeet insole, which allows me to walk/stand in them all day long all over NYC and wherever, with no discomfort whatsoever (whereas without the SuperFeet I can't walk ten feet in Chucks). The 3/4 insole is unique in that it is designed for shoes that lack removable insoles. If the Addicts are like the JVs, which HAVE a removable insole, you might be better off with one of the full length SuperFeet. Either way, check out SuperFeet. Available from EMS and Zappos

Or... go for the much more comfortable and ergonomic alternative... PF Flyers
