How old are you?

36! My 18 month old son also just for his first pair.

My latest were custom ones from the converse website.

I love them! Purple and white with white eyelets and stitching.

Dp got me them for my birthday. They even have my name embroidered on to the back.

I am 40 I have worn converse or prokeds most of the year for 28 years!

About 12 years ago I actually got a pair brought back from the US for me; they were so hard to come by here.

36 - I was about to type 35 and then realised that is no longer strictly accurate sad

25. I've been wearing Converse since I was about 17. Not the same pair obviously!

I was 27 when I bought them. They were awful. The back of my heels were covered in blisters after a very short walk. It seems that I need padded backs.

41 (definitely)
I bought my first ever pair last year, and now have 4 (2x navy and 2x grey).

24. Wouldn't be without them and desperate for some kurt cobain or batman ones.

PesteredButHappy Sat 25-May-13 19:49:11

32, had loads of pairs over the years.

HanShotFirst Sat 25-May-13 19:50:40

I am 27 and have been wearing them over 10 years now. I can't see an end to my infatuation! I only wear the boots though, as the shoes don't stay on my heels.

My favourite pair are my Thundcats ones.....THUNDERCATS, HOOOOOOOO!

PersonalClown Sat 25-May-13 19:51:43

Have about 6 pairs. Dp has banned me from anymore till they wear out.
I'm 34 but 25 in my head.

peggyblackett Sat 25-May-13 19:52:10

38. My Dad wears them at 65.

JollyOrangeGiant Sat 25-May-13 19:53:30

Thank you, everyone.

I've just bought my first pair at 27. Have had other baseball boots in the past though.

I love them but I had a slight crisis of confidence as two 16 year olds I know have recently bought a pair each.

Mine are grey with an orange fold down bit. I hate pumps so these will be worn almost constantly this summer.

christinarossetti Sat 25-May-13 19:54:00

Over 40. Have just bought a pair for the first time in years.

Not a fan of the boots, but am liking the Dainty Ox trainers.
