Trendy Tuesday - Are Converse Still All-Stars?



Husband and I went to the mall last night for a few purchases, and I noticed that Converse is everywhere! Maybe they never phased out completely, but it sure seems they are back on the popular side.


It is amazing the HUGE selection of styles and prints they've come out with now since those converse high tops I remember...apparently you can even design your own shoe now!



I can remember when I was in Junior High I had these exact pair...


And I'm pretty sure the rule of thumb is, if you've already worn it as a style during your lifetime once, you're probably too old to pull it off when it comes back around...


But luckily Converse has come out with such a wide variety, I can go with a different style this time, right? I think I would be one hot momma in these...



Since I will reluctantly be giving up these....

I had a pair of red converse tennies ...oh, about 50 years ago...it pains me to say that! However, at the tender age of 3 or 4... I LOVED the "smooth rubber toe" of my bright red shoe! Somethings never go out of style...speck so! Have a delightful day! God Bless, Love, mom oxoxoxoxo

It's funny you posted about this, because recently I've been thinking I'd like to get a pair of low tops... I've never owned any, but they've caught my eye lately. So yeah, I def. think they're still All Stars!

Oh my gosh! I had the exact pair of pink Converse hi-tops that are at the top of this page! Wow...that brings back memories... :)

The pink converse are definitely cute...but I hope you don't have to give up the pink hot stilettos for too long. After my pregnancy I still can't wear them...but maybe it was that combined with my age?

I still try and wear them if I'm only going to be dressed up for a short period of time!

I think I saw Reese Witherspoon in a magazine with a white pair no laces and gray t-shirt. She looked very cute, I would look slouchy!!

You know, I've never owned a pair of converse shoes. So maybe, just maybe I'll give 'em a whirl!

Oh, I love Converse! I never had gotten the hang of wearing the high-tops with shorts or capris though. They look cute on other girls, so I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or if my ankles are just not the right shape. :D
