Converse All Star Shoes

Converse All Star Shoes
When I was in college over ten years ago, Converse All Star shoes were very popular. The music of Pearl Jam and Nirvana was popular, and along with this came the look of flannel shirts and Converse shoes. I often wondered why they were so popular, because I have never warmed up to the look of them. Now, suddenly, my husband comes home with a pair. He’s excited, and apparently, they are back in style. He doesn’t wear them on a daily basis; they are strictly reserved for when he plays with his band. While he doesn’t really take care of anything else he owns, the Converse All Star shoes are kept in high regard. I just don’t get it.
It really doesn’t matter if I get it or not, as plenty of people love them. I am all about owning your own look, and if you like them, and want to make Converse All Star shoes a part of your wardrobe, then you should by all means do so. If you love what you wear, you are going to feel comfortable and confident. Nothing is more attractive than that. Just because I don’t understand it does not mean I don’t like my husband wearing them, it just means you won’t see us in matching shoes any time soon.
You can find Converse All Star shoes in shoe stores and online. It seems these are timeless as they come and go, but never disappear. Every few years it seems they are back in style to some extent. If they aren’t in style when you are looking, you may have to look online to find them, but you should be able to find them. Converse All Star shoes seem to have a life of their own, and it seems there will always be someone interested in wearing them.
If you want to find an old pair of Converse All Star shoes, you can probably find them on eBay. Though the look has not changed much, there are some subtle differences. Though I can’t imagine wanting to wear someone else’s old shoes, I can understand wanting to find the original of something if you really love it. Converse All Star shoes seem to be timeless, so if you own a pair, and they then go out of style, you may want to put them away for later. Chances are good that you’ll want to get them about again in a few years.
