Am I too old for converse?

Have just bought some delicious black leather shoe types. they are lovely but DD has just told me I am too old for them sad

I'm not a glamorous city type gal. I'm a somewhat windswept country bumpkin and live in jeans.

How old are you?

cocolepew Tue 03-Nov-09 18:20:43

You're never too old for Converse.

MinkyBorage Tue 03-Nov-09 18:20:43

the answer is no, doesn't matter how old you are imo

EccentricaGallumBANG Tue 03-Nov-09 18:22:00

A few of my friends have told me that their dads wear Converse and they must be in their 60s. My Grandfather told me he used to wear them for basketball and he's in his 80s now!

The youth of today, they don't know that Converse have been 'done' so many times already hmm grin

You're just two years older then me, so no definitely not too old!

I have fake grey/silvery ones.

purepurple Tue 03-Nov-09 18:25:14

no, I have all black ones. And I am 42

EccentricaGallumBANG Tue 03-Nov-09 18:25:31

so she's just jelous then? will have to lock them away. they are rather nice.

brimfull Tue 03-Nov-09 18:25:51

I wish they fitted wide feet

EccentricaGallumBANG Tue 03-Nov-09 18:32:14

my feet are square wide. they fit OK.

tulpe Tue 03-Nov-09 18:42:03

DD is clearly jealous of your gorgeous new converse . Enjoy them. Age is irrelevant.

ggirl - I have wide feet and I wear them. I have the suede ones though - don't know if they have a slightly different fit to the canvas ones.

brimfull Tue 03-Nov-09 18:42:56

ilke eee

NinthWave Tue 03-Nov-09 18:52:44

I'm 29 and I've got silver sequiny ones

MinkyBorage Tue 03-Nov-09 20:11:24

EGB you're two years younger than me and I'm nowhere near too old! smile

AnyFucker Tue 03-Nov-09 20:14:10

halfcut Tue 03-Nov-09 20:19:43

No, all the young cool kids wear Vans grin

SCARYspicemonster Tue 03-Nov-09 20:20:19

I have 2 pairs - red hi tops and black lo tops and I'm 44. Tell your DD to get with the program(me)

EyeballsintheSky Tue 03-Nov-09 20:21:36

I'm getting the stripey Blondie Converse when they are out in March. I'm 38 and i don't give two tosses!

fishtankbrain Tue 03-Nov-09 20:24:55

It will hearten you to know that my 16 year old cousin, my 59 year old mother and 31 year old me all have identical pairs of white converse trainers.

I fully intend to be buried in converses. They will have to prise them from my cold dead feet.

Marioandluigi Tue 03-Nov-09 20:28:46

I love my converse, I have a blue pair, a baby pink pair and a red pair. You are never too old for converse and they are really comfy!

Well, I am 37, always scruffy and 2 stone over weight and I love mine.

I wouldn't take notice of a child.
