Converse Shoes, STILL going strong!

I was out to lunch this past week with my 2 nieces, nephew, mom and sister.  We were enjoying ourselves and just chatting about everything, when the topic of shoes came up.  My 10 year old niece Makayla announced that she wanted a certain type of shoes for school.  I was surprised when the shoes she was talking about was Converse.  Are these shoes really making a comeback, AGAIN? 

I had a pair when I was in my teens.  Maybe they wasn’t in style, but for me they were and I loved them!  I had a pair of red hightop ones.  I made mine my own!  I took a pen and marker and decorated them with “New Kids On the Block”  Please don’t judge haha.  I was obsessed, what can I say!  I can’t really remember where I got these shoes but I loved them.

  • I remember my mom telling that when my sister and brother were little, which would have been in the 60’s that these shoes were very popular as well, and from what she said fairly cheap.  I believe she said she could find them for about 99 cents a pair.  That isn’t it though, my stepfather told about wearing these as early as the 50s! 
  • It really surprised me how long these shoes have been around!  I really love them myself and I do hope that they stick around for years to come! 
  • Do you remember Converse?  Share your story with me!
  • What Kind of Shoes Did your kids want for school this year?
