Is it bad that the first thing I noticed was the Storm Trooper head on an Imperial Walker?

me too yay!

I was a SW geek with my little brother... bought him almost every action figure as they were released back in the day... he would get doubles sometimes and I kept those in the packages to this day... the best ones tho were the well loved ones.. with missing appendages and such from so much use LOL

Converse suck if you have wide feet! I have similar styles, but they are kickers, gola and a n other.

All-Stars are just about the worst possible things you could put on your feet (health-wise, to say nothing of how they look).

I'm wearing my white ones right now

Also have brown, black, red and some leather low tops which I wear on formal occasions

To any purists my red and blacks were made in the USA (late 1990's)

Arch support...they're flat. I'm no expert though and haven't owned a pair since the 70s. Still no fan of them but to each his own.

Interestingly, I was watching Larry King yesterday and he was wearing a pair with blue jeans. I think it was a repeat and Jack Hanna was the guest.

well, I have flat feet, and these are the most comfortable to me.

Cassie and Wayne, Emma, John:

I know you guys want me to wear Converse - I'll only wear them if I can find this pair somewhere:



They come in pink too

What's worse? Wearing Chucks or going barefoot as humans did (and still do) for ages?

And I'd think flipflops would be more dangerous. They don't protect your feet from anything.
