Nike took over converse some time ago. Readjusting and Replanning the design, marketing, pr, endorsements etc etc.

Apparently things are looking up.

I play in Chuck's. Nice and Classic. Plus cheap enough to get one for each color of my basket ball shorts.


My ankles/feet hurt...

I just got my Red and White Dr. J's last Saturday. I gotta find the old Celtic, green and white, Converse from when Dennis Johnson played, those are sweet!! And who can forget the Sky Blue Converse that North Carolina rocked in the 80s.

I know. People say "stop living in the past" But the 1980s Converse were some great shoes.

Yeh is it good idea to wear the chucks... the guys back in the days wore them.

It'd be cool.

EDIT :- but then if I wear chucks, I would also need to wear those tight short shorts which I aint gonna. :)

lol man.
blisters are a norm and you gotta live with em, no matter what shoes you're wearing or when or why or whatever.
Just don't pop em, let em be, they'll fall off by themselves. Get used to the pain/discomfort, the more you have it, the less you pay attention to it, and the harder your skin becomes. If you're paranoid about infections, wash em up a bit with hydrogen peroxide, but most of the time you dont have to apply anything at all.

back when i just started playing bball, I used to wear non-baller shoes that were crappy overall, and i had blisters every day and after games almost limped heh.

Converse is already making a retro version of a shoe that was only released a few seasons ago?
