I bought a pair of converse slip on chucks from Gap about 6 months. They have been falling apart lately and I am looking for a new pair. I stopped by Off 5th yesterday and they had John Varvatos Converse for about $50. The price seems reasonable, but I am concerned with the quality. I don't want these to fall apart in 6 months. Does anyone have any experience with the quality of Varvatos Converses? Are they made by Varvatos or are all converses made by one company and each company puts their name on them? Thanks.
