    I used to wear Converses. I personally liked the retro look, and the black ones went really well with the black clothes and band clothes I like to wear. But after a while I gave them up because they are really terrible in quality and make my feet hurt. I got some combat boots, and I've had them for 16 months. There is no wear and tear, they are reliable in any environment, and extremely comfortable and support my feet.

    I like wearing feet. Not feet on top of my feet. Just the feet I was born with.

    they were real popular when i was a kid too, in the 80's. especially if basketball was big in your neighborhood.

    i don't know where you guys are buying chucks that they are so expensive.
    in the USA, i have never bought a pair for more than 25 dollars. they have always been cheap, that is part of the allure.

    In Hungary, I saw them at a price of 14 000 HUF (~73$).

    I used to wear pumped up nike's with cavello suit and t-shirts of weird funky colors like pink, orange or mint green. And that stuff was well expensive as well.

    I mean a cavello suit was like, what would be 250 euro now. It was just a sweat suit with some fancy printing on it and these flaps inbetween the zipper near the feet. But they were well awesome and respected.

    Puberty... I never really found an explanation for the phenomenon.

    You don't see uniforms in most hungarian schools, so rebelling against it can not be a proper explanation for this. Although it might be a possible reason in other countries, I feel like it's not the full story.

    Yeah that's my point. They're "terrible in quality" and very inconvenient.
    It would be interesting to see if Converse has any health benefits, though I doubt this alone would motivate most teenagers.
