I don't understand the point in threads that are stated like this.

Obviously, you'll get a little group for each choice. Some people will argue a little, some people will +1 each other.

I dunno. I just don't see how any productive or entertaining information could be spread here.

Maybe I'm outgrowing the pit.

Come on, if you want skate shoes, don't wear Vans or DC's. They LOOK skate-ish, but they're just poser shoes.
Grow balls, buy Fallen shoes.

OMGWTF!

as I am of the fairer sex, I abso-fuckin-lutely LOVE shoes!
I have..
2 pairs black/white lo tops
yellow hi tops
all black hi tops (with bleach stains)
neon green lo tops
brown and blue hi tops
clear lo tops
green/blue/pink elephant lo tops
aqua/neon green checkered slip-ons
red/black dot slip-ons
black/white dot slip-ons

and for the holiday, I'm planning on getting AT LEAST 5 MORE PAIRS. OMG.


I need them.

because I need to match.

or I will surely collapse into a steaming pile of self-hatred and unfashionable-ism.

edit:
Chucks: from Chuck Taylor All-Stars. Chuck Taylor was an up-and-coming basketball player who wore Converse All-Stars. They changed the style slightly and renamed the shoe Chuck Taylor All-Stars. Yay for 90+ years of excellence! Down with Keds!

...And so it begins...

+1 to Thurston

DC is easily most comfortable, and most pretty... IMO

I don't think you can really say that one is better than the other, although DC's are very very firm, and look great to. vans used to be cool, but is much to commercial nowadays and I just really don't like converse

umm... actually... I was cleaning the kitchen while wearing them, and I spilled bleach...
#24
I didn't vote, because I love Vans (they are really resistent, and comfortable, I've owned a few pairs) and I'm also a fan of DC's (for the same reasons, plus, IMO they are cooler :p .

It's really up to you

I like my VANS... the proper kind not the gay slip on ones. I do like Converse though, I've just never owned a pair.
All I want is for everyone to go to hell...

I wear a pair of Vans most of the time because they're one of two pairs of proper shoes I happen to own. I will never buy a Nike shoe.

DC's becuase they make my freakishly large feet look smaller (size 8 and im a girl thats like a size 10 in the US)

I wear converse a lot. I have no doubt in my mind that most other shoes would keep my feet more warm and dry

so if you're asking which is better in a functional sense, not converse.
If you're asking which I buy and wear, converse.

Honestly, Vans are good shoes, D.C.s are popular, but a ripped up pair of Convis is the way to go, My school has 4 foreign exchange students, one from every coninent (a Joke) and they all wear converses, so they are obviously popular world wide, I wear them, they're cool, the end.
