My question is are you ever too old for converse and jeans? I'm in my 60's and I think, still don't look my age.

What's wrong with looking your age?

Not an issue in my opinion. I hope I still wear mine then, don't see why not.

Wear whatever you want! Although if you're choosing them for comfort, I would suggest a visit to a quiet JD/ size when the kids are back at school and try on a few things. Adidas have some lovely styles which are much comfier than converse.

I don't know why all pensioners don't wear Converse and jeans.

I bet I will when I'm retired.

I'm 57 and wear Superga and jeans. I won't be suddenly rocking elastic waists and Hotter shoes.
Go for it.

I'm 51 and about to go out dinner in converses!

I'm sure I will still be wearing them in 10 years time as they are practical, comfortable and they look good.

Wear what you like.

Who cares about your age? If you are comfortable and you like what you wear that's all that matters IMHO

I no longer care and I'm not yet sixty.

I've finally got over thinking I should be in sensible shoes, proper skirts and twin-sets.

Look, to be brutal honest, I do think it looks a little odd. It's a type of shoe that just isn't pitched at pensioners. Like seeing a teenage boy in a pair of brown tweeds. Nothing wrong with it per se, it just doesn't look quite right.

But there's so much nice stuff out there, it's not converse or sensible sandals! There's a world in between.

My mum is 70. She has a better figure than me (and works out hard to get it! Well done her!), a better hair style than me, and has a much better fashion sense! (which does include jeans and trainers - not sure if she has converse - but she'd pull them off!) Who cares about age! If you look good in it - wear it!! (actually, wear it regardless of what you like!! who cares!!! no-one worth worrying about!!) smile

I plan to still wear my doc Martins in my 60''s , so I can't see the difference !

I'm well into my 50s and wear jeans and Converse. Why not?
