I think they're cool but they're overpriced and unoriginal, they used to be quirky and cheaper but now everyone wears them! I still like them, but they're turning into a shoe version of burberry - they're being taken over by chavs and wannabes who only buy them because the people they want to be like buy them.. but they're still the coolest sneakers on earth!
wannabe: like, duuuuuuuuuuuude, i brought some new converses yesterday, like, duuuuuuuuuuuude...

The basic of any sneaker. Idk if they used to be better or not, but I don't like them. I don't see how they're comfortable as most people say. I used to have a pair, and my feet would hurt and get blisters everytime I walked with them. OUCH. The problem is that they have no cushion, and I would rather go for Air Jordans or any skate shoe... because they're actually comfortable and HAVE cushioning.
Mom: How do you like your new Converse shoes?

Me: They're freaking painful! I walked around with them and now my feet are all beat up! Let's go to Sports Authority and get Adidas!

A day later...

Mom: How are your Adidas?

Me: Great. They're comfortable and I can walk across the country in them.

1) a geometric term
2) a type of shoes, Chuck Taylors, that used to be popular in the 80's. Are now having a revival, except that Nike bought the company and the only people who wear them are people who realize that this is the latest trend. People write stuff on the rubber parts, and some are made all colorful and printed. Little do these people know that Chucks are made by poor people in sweatshops in Taiwan. Losers.
oh my god, i just got a new pair of converse yesterday for like 88 dollars, they're all pink and sparkly! Let's draw smiley faces in permanent marker on them! So fab.

An old-fashioned shoe made from canvas material. Uncomfortable after long periods, but certainly stylistic.

It must be noted that the only real Converse shoes are the high-tops. LOW-TOPS ARE A COP-OUT. The people who wear low-tops are the people who just want to fit in, but are afraid of standing out too much. Way to be half ass.
I want some Converse shoes, but conversely, I am too socially conscious to wear real Converse.

Official Chuck Taylor canvas shoes with rubber soles.

In My Opinion the best shoes in the world.

Followed closely by classic slip-on vans.
Cool Emo Kid: Like I Have Totally Gotta Get Those Converse.
Uncool Person: What do you want converse for?
Cool Emo Kid: They Are Like The Best Shoes In The World.
Uncool Person: uh.
