if anyone's looking for a new pair of all stars:
i got some chuck taylors by john varvatos a few months ago and they look awesome. can dress them up or down. but not only that they are literally the most comfortable pair of shoes i've ever owned. i got brown back then but i ordered black ones a couple days ago.
nordstrom has em way cheaper than on the JV and converse websites so i'd definitely suggest them for anyone who's looking in that market. they might only have black/brown.
here's the blue ones but i didn't see them on nordstrom.
couple notes tho in case anyone buys em.
1. they're "distressed" so they come to you pre-smudged and "dirtied" on the shoe bumper.
2. converse doesn't fit true to size. they run half a size bigger than what's listed so if you are a size 10, get 9.5. if you're not sure then go to any shoe store at the mall and figure out what fits you best.
3. if you like high tops check them out on the john varvatos/converse site. their eyelets make my skin crawl, though.
