Well, they still cost $35 but now they're made in Mexico or China.

My 3 year old loves his, wears them almost as much as his Keene's. I may be one of the few people in the US to never have owned a pair though.

I have a couple pair, I never wear them. I grew up in regular sneakers my whole life so they just aren't comfortable. They also don't supply support to my knees and hips (I feel old).

I got my nephew and godson a pair, they look cute on them, but they also have little DC's

"Abrasion resistance" is not something that comes to mind when I think of Converse.
Gazelle junky here. Had one pair last about 10 years, they are good shoes and comfortable as hell. Got an adidas outlet right by my house so I have a ton of adidas gear.

I do have a pair of low Chucks that have been delegated to yard cutting.

Too bad they are no longer made in the US, just like everything used to be, Schwinn bikes used to be made in the USA for a long time, we have an old green Phantom reproduction from 1996 I think before they went Asian and the quality is so much better than any Asian Schwinn, it is actually made out of steel and weighs about 65LBS. My dad says the Chucks he had growing up were a lot better than the ones now.

x2 chuck taylors blow it's like no padding at all when you have flat footed Fred Flintstones feet they suck.

i now only buy redwing boots a pair last about 18months to 2years so $200 for a pair of boots that is electrical hazard water proof/ gore tex
theres a piece of metal between the sole and bottom of the boot keeps nails and other junk going through your feet.

Insulated just awesome boots.

I always get the tie up style where it's almost combat boot style. supports your ankles!

I might be dating myself but, when I was playing ball, you either wore Chucks or Pro-Keds. Then Adidas came along, Puma, and finally Nike.
The Chucks and Keds didn't have decent padding or arch support; when Nike came out, I found I could dunk much easier and made the switch.
