There is no other shoe brand on the planet that I hate more than Converse. Ugly, dated, and completely disgusting, I have loathed them forever. And this pair solidifies that feeling. Here is the lame product description attached to these ugly fuckers at Famous Footwear.

"It’s like, “Wear these skate shoes or else!” That nebulous “else” would be crutches, in this case. All in fun, all in fun. One thing is clear, however: the Skid Grip by Converse is a killer shoe. Slip-on canvas upper with elastic goring at sides for great fit Nicely cushioned insole absorbs shocks Grippy rubber outsole"

What retard wrote this blurb? All in fun? A killer shoe? What's the competition for them? Flip flops? And incidentally, paint these white, get rid of the skull and crutches design and you have what we used to call "decks" in 1980's Queens, worn by every guido from here to Brooklyn.
