    I overheard someone on the NYC subway last weekend say to his friend something along the lines of "Why would you buy those when you can buy Converse for much less? They're the same thing", in reference to the Common Projects Achilles low's I was wearing. I didn't say anything, because I don't associate with poor people. And before anyone mentions the irony of me taking the subway, I put $5000 down on my metrocard.

    Just curious: How would you have replied if the guy were not a poor people?

    "Dear good sir, please shut your mouth at once." Then I take the leather glove off my left hand and slap him across the face with it for such heresy. Finally, I dial Jet and hand the heretic my phone for a verbal reaming.

    I'm certainly missing the irony he's talking about.

    I think most people are fully aware that Converse is a subsidiary of Nike. That is not the point of the thread. However I want these NOW. Japan proxy?

    This thread = fail. This has been done already only better

    Are you vested in the 'dirty canvas' thread? Protecting an investment? What was their IPO, btw? In jest of course.

    Anyway...

    Thank you, that made me laugh out loud. You should give some respect though. After all, they recognised your CPs.

    For weight training yes... for running, not so much.

    I wear them while jogging too, wouldn't have it any other way. I'll understand people if they need running shoes though.
