33. They're my main pair of shoes, the only time I don't wear them is when I have flip-flops on.

35. Interested in the distribution/averages demonstrated by this thread: suspect it aligns to MN demographic averages rather than converse wearing demographic averages.

39 and wear them most of the time, Prefer high tops (got yellow, cream with furry insides limited ed, limited edition ones for charity RED that are denim with long mutli coloured embroidered stitches, green army camo (my favourites) also have a pair of white ox lo double tongue but I wore them with new jeans that got a bit wet and now it's rubbed blue on them hmm

Wedges come up small but they do half sizes on line.Happy Days

Got my first pair at 15, they were bottle green suede and I wore them until they literally fell off my feet.

I'm 42 and wear them. I've been wearing them since I was in my 20's. My latest pair are gold leather and I've put purple laces in them. Have had loads of pairs over the years.

Have low tops in red, navy, grey and a pale gold leather pair, and hi tops in a sort of multicoloured bubble design. Hardly wear the hi tops though

I had a pair as a student, but I couldn't wear them as they shredded the tops of my heels if I tried to walk in them, couldn't break them in and I just couldn't wear them at all. Interesting to see how many people do really get on with them.

InkleWinkle Sat 25-May-13 20:29:46

I didn't realise there was an age restriction'

42. I have several pairs but don't wear them every day.
