As Olivia and Will pointed out, Converse rock.
And good job spotting the shoes, you two, since you can only see the tops of them! :)
Anyway, I have two pairs of chucks, and I wish I had more. These are the ones I have:
Green and pink ones from Rebecca, because they were the wrong size for her, and black and white ones I got on eBay for about a third of the normal price. I end up wearing the black ones more, because they go with things better, but I like both pairs.
I wish I had these (they would match my bedroom!). They also used to make some that looked like these ones:
...but in lime green with black and white rabbits, and the black rabbits were fuzzy. I think they also had a version with sheep. I can't seem to find any pictures now, though, so I don't know if they stopped making them or what. That's too bad. They also come in tweed, and floral prints, and a fingerprint pattern...and wouldn't these crossword ones be neat? You could have your friends write their names in the spaces:
Unfortunately Converse aren't exactly cheap. But if one was going to collect a bunch of shoes, wouldn't these be the most practical shoes you could collect? :) I mean, they come in all sorts of colors, and you can throw them in the washing machine!
And speaking of practical, I have to put dorky gel insoles in mine because they are SO FLAT inside and I have picky feet that don't like to be that flat. :p
