    I want a pair of converse. Are high tops or low tops better?
    I used to have a black pair but i want a white pair now. Size 7 was a bit tight so i want 7.5

    Hi tops are a lil better about the tongue slide thing, and JV Cons have the little tongue slit which helps too

    Mine are hi-tops. Fucking hell. It makes me not want to wear them. I'm considering getting a loop added to the tongue.

    Safety pin? Velcro? Tie it real tight?

    Where 2 buy?

    I did not know this would exist. A strange second chance for those who missed out?

    Nords has them in black. That color looks a little sickly to me.

    I mean what looks better with shall we say jeans?
    I visualize that hi tops look better and give better support. SO i probably will get hi.

    Are you wearing them with capri pants or how do you expect people to see the difference between low and hi tops when your jeans cover the upper part? [​IMG]

    I dont know what capri pants are, but sometimes your jeans ride up. And you can tell if someone is wearing hi or low.
    Sometimes you cant though without looking really carefully.

    But i notice girls love wearing converse. I think because they were given a mention in trinny and sussanah fashion book or something like that has got something to do with it. But they look good in them. And girls love to wear things they look good in.

    Its quite funny how more girls than boys wear converse. I made a point of checking how many girls wear it and nearly 30% were.
    In a museum room and about 5 girls in a room of 15 wore converse.

    They would be horrified if a girl was wearing the same dress at a party. But apparantly converse is ok.

    The white and navy are on the regular converse website. They look less than impressive on that site. The Woolrich shoes are available at some european and asian sites. I think Caliroots has them.
