How old are you?

42 and just ordered some more...turquoise blue washed effect ones.

I fancy leopard print next. I really hope I'm going to be able to tolerate wearing them without socks as well, as they look quite nice with my maxis and even with little summer skirts.

They were practically all I wore in my 30's (sahm to young children) have since emigrated am 40 and live it open toed wedges or flip flops ...when I go back to England I tried converse again and they completely shredded my feet , the only closed shoe I can stand to wear now are a cheapo pair of converse knock offs from New Look.

I did have purple, grey, red, navy, white, cream a camouflage pair with no laces and a black pair.

42, have had several pairs over the years. This thread has made me look at the converse site and I'm now trying to justify spending money on some customised ones..... damn you MN and your money spending opportunities!

34, I love my Converse, they're funky black and white ones with writing all over. I can only wear them if I'm not going to be walking loads though as they rub on my little toes.

I am 39 and have been wearing converse since I was about 12. I must have had over 25 pairs. I currently have white, pink, red, black and blue. Dd is 7' she has pink white & red and even dp wears them, he has about 5 pairs. Thinking about it converse should start paying us for the amount we wear and advertise their shoes!

I bought my first and only pair in Paris, aged 17. I have literally worn them a couple of times coz they rub my heels sad

Can't face giving them away though.

Got my first pair last year and I was 43 last month....

39. But they make holes in the toes of my socks - anyone else have this problem? I do cut my toenails!

40. I've got Black ones that I customised myself with swarovski crystals.

35. I also had them when I was a teen.

AuntPittypat Sat 25-May-13 21:49:01

I bought my second ever pair of Converse last year, when I was 32. Ended up selling them though, exactly as I had done my first pair a few years before, as they make my feet look big - despite only being a size 3. I just can't get the hang of wearing them.

33 grin I recently bought pink ones to match dd1's (she is 3) judge away I don't give a monkeys and she was over joyed grin
