Converse Shoes

Converse ShoesFor a stage two of our simple sporty shoe experiment we ordered a matching pair of Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoes in black.

Converse ShoesNever before did I imagine that I would pay for these willingly until a week ago. The thing is that the last time I wore this type of shoes was when I was around 10 for a gym class back in USSR. They were considered to be the cheapest shoe out there and so most kids ended up with them for their physical education classes.

I imagined them have a thin rubber sole — just like my USSR pair had, but these are a whole different kind of animal and are much more solid. Although they still are not to be worn during the cold days — even yesterday during our “test drive” the cold earth could be very well felt.
