Converse All Stars. An American classic. My 'punk rock' shoes.
With the exception of events like weddings or funerals that require more formal footwear, these shoes or a pair like them, were the only thing I wore on my feet for the majority of the 90's. I still love these shoes and would still be wearing them regularly were it not for the need for shoes with a bit better arch support. I missed my old friends today so I dug around in the back of the closet and tried them on again for old time's sake.
