Now I've been thinking bout this for a while. Both the classic high top Converse and the slip on Vans Off the Walls have been around for a while. I know that Converse is older, but still, which is more classic, which comes to mind when you think of the 70s and 80s?

I think converse probably have a higher 'classic' factor, but personally, give me a big chunky pair of Vans skate shoes anyday over converse, there is no comparison in the comfort stakes.

mmmmm, comfy

Vans for the win.

I like the classic vans, no tthe slip ons. Where I live slip-ons are consideered "emo" which I think is dumb but whatever.

I wore converse hitops for a few years but i switched over to DC court graffiks, so much more comfortable and easier to put on
Don't get lowtops, those are stupid
The Vans ones are kinda emo IMO

By that logic, practically any thread with a poll in it should be reported.

The rules mean no Band Vs. Band threads.

And Converse > Vans..

Well actually it's not you tool.

I have a pair of Chucks and some Vegan Vans.

I like them both.

Slip ons rock though too.
