So basically you're a judgmental a******? Thanks for the fashion advice, but I think grown men are capable of choosing their own brand of shoes without hearing from the bigot peanut gallery.

Eh, if you're paying your bills and working hard, wear what you want. I am a 43 year old woman and I have some of the coolest Chucks - camo, neon, different prints, Missoni, polka dots...and I wear them with no shame!

Mind your own business. I wear whatever the heck I want to wear, even if I'm 100.

Never wore Converse shoes but had those blue Keds knockoffs for a long time when I was younger. Are the "real" Converse shoes just as uncomfortable? I think they have no sole or arch support. They look so thin and unsubstantial! Give me my good comfortable Reeboks any day!

I think that Converse are just fine. There are cut-for Chucks socks that I wear with mine and they don't make my feet hurt or anything. But to me, anything hurts my feet if I walk around too long in them.

I never wore Converse but I used to wear ProKeds. They are naming a comeback too and have been relaunched. I saw them on display at a store in Hong Kong, of all places.

In my early teens, I switched to Adidas and Pumas and still wear them today. They are definitely a better shoe than the older sneakers like ProKeds, and some of the newer models are better still.

Gotta love a woman in Chuck's! I'm on the wrong side of 60 and wearing black high tops right now. Started a million years ago wearing them when I made the basketball team in high school. That was the ONLY athletic shoe available then. And your choice of colors was black or white. When I was in college it was cool to pick up a date in a suit and tie and Black Connies, a fashion statement if you will. The other day I saw a woman shopping with her two little girls, all 3 wearing white high top Connies, looked cool. About 20 years ago when they became popular again my wife bought us each a pair of the old style canvas high tops. I forgot they offer no support, we couldn't walk in them, hurt too much.


Does the OP know that most guys in the NBA are over 25?

Funny, those "old" folks are the ones who made "Chucks" popular to start with. Me and my 60+ year old friends wore Chucks all the time when we were younger. (Chucks for olders and PF Flyers for youngers kids.) The only reason we stopped wearing them was because as an athletic shoe, they are lacking and also because they became scarce or even unavailable in the market.

Now that they are back, why shouldn't those who "made" the shoes still wear them?
