I'm doing this poll because i'm curious if people prefer their Converse All Stars brand-new or worn-out.

I know, i know: "Converse All Stars are a product of the capitalist society", "to say that worn-out Converse All Stars are beautiful is such a cliché...", and so on, and so on.

But face it, Chuck Taylor's Converse All Stars are must-have in many famous musicians wardrobe, and they definitely are a punk-rock icon.

I'd like to know your genuine opinion, so this is a private poll. User's votes remain secret.

I, for one, don't mind to share my vote.
My vote is in brand-new, almost shiny.
I like Converse All Stars, not because famous people use them, but because they are a part of the history of punk-rock, and i think they're comfortable and pleasant to the eye.


EDIT: pics of my brand-new black Converse All Stars in my profile... Ehehehe...

If you like to walk then they aren't a good choice.

Though I have some nice puma ones that are like converse so I dont conform to society.

I don't own Converse. It's not so much that I have something against them, but I don't like when I go to school and I see 1/3 of the people there with the same shoes on. I don't know why, but it really bothers me.

Anyway, if I were to pick a pair, it would probably be... worn-out white low-tops. And by worn-out I mean a little dirty so the white looks more cream/beige. I actually like the look of high-tops more, but low-tops look more comfortable.

Puma 917s? I like those a lot.

in the middle, a bit scuffed and worn but not to the point where the look like they're going to fall apart any second.
though i would love to wear a pair of converse like these
I have nothing unique or funny to put here.
#14
I've got worn out ones and clean ones so I just chose my cleanies for the sake of a one option poll!

The answer for 'worn-out' sounds bloody poncey, I won't vote.

There's no damn philosophy behind why they're better a bit worn in. They just are.

umm... well... i skate, so i'd have to say my worn out Fallen Troopers or my clean, neat and unscratched Lakai Telfords or my classic Vans purple and black checkered slip ons... no converses
#19
I don't care who ele wears them, theyre very comfy after ive worn them a month or so, my current pair used to be white but no matter how many times you wash them they won't go back.

Here's the thing with converse- they look cool. But they're the most uncomfortable shoes ever.

I where brown and white checkered Vans. If not, Brown converse with black laces. I hate them new. Most of my shows have tears in them.

Personally, I think they look hideous... and I would NOT want to be seen wearing a pair!

Mine are worn out. I've had them for almost 4 years and they still fit. I originally got them because they were cheap (around £10) but I don't know if I'll ever buy another pair. I don't really like them, to be honest.
#34
Also I own a pair of matalan 'converse' style shoes.

Thats my second reason why I don't conform to society

I like slightly used. Ones that look as though they're a month or two used.

I have a pair of worn-as-hell ones, and they simply look bad. The "ALL STARS" logo on the heel keeps flipping itself up, too

Or not, i always wear mine because theyr comfy has hell.

I like them worn out, BUT, theres a limit, my old hi' tops are like 2 years old, and i only washed them recently, before that the white rubber part on top was black from playing soccer lol.

My black and white pair are beat up beyond belief. But I still love them.

My other pairs are pretty clean.
