Chuck Taylor® All Star® Low (click and wait for it)

the low version of the highs i posted. don't understand why the description reads "canvas," when these appear to be leather and have leather prices. saw a canvas navy version of this about a year ago. looked alittle better.

Chucks don't come in half sizes right?

Cuz I got some chuck hi tops in 8 and they just fit, hopefully they stretch out at the toes, but then the 9's are too big...

i always seems to have a problem with my heel popping out of the shoe tho...

you can get your shoes stretched.I had my boots streched half a size by a shoe/boot repairer

depending on the chucks style run, some come in half sizes. what model do you have? i would not recommend having your chucks professionally stretched at a cobbler/shoe repair store. unlike boots, chucks are obviously super thin. the leather would give waaaaay more easier than that of a boot thus causing the silouette to warp. will not retain the shape you want. not worth the time, precision-work or the money. fairly obvious shit, don't know why the guy above me is giving you such retarded advice.

he would look at the shoe and asses if it can be stretched without losing form.he has stretched a lot of sneakers,but yeh,you are right,some chucks are too thin

I'm thinking of painting a pair of canvas chucks. Not sure what I should use though, been thinking about acrylic paint or black silicone (diluted?) Maybe polyurethane (where to cop?) Any suggestions?

they not cons. they final h shoes i think. you talking about the ones i posted in the black hi tops thread? i dont remember, but shit is like a season or two old. they are nice, but considering that final homme aint selling like it used 2 in japland, i dont see why any competent proxy wouldnt be able aquire a pair for u.

i have this pair of dark green high cut chucks with slight pinstrip-ing, which i bought YEARS ago. heh. now looking back, it looks pretty whacked. but im wondering if its possible to bleach the shit out of it and whack some white paint on it, to make it look like those white varvatos chucks.

http://theconverseculture.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2007/02/varvatosjpg.jpg

anyone knows it it'll work? btw. the rubber sole of mine is black, :(. will bleach be enough to make it white? or will i need paint? cos i have a feeling paint on rubber will come off after a while.

The Buzz Rickson x William Gibson Converse CT style sneakers coming out this fall are pretty dope..

Brown or black, hi's and low's..

Unfortunately, if you're over size 10 your outta luck. They only go up to 9.5US and they run half a size big.

I can't wait to get a pair of these myself, these'll be my first sneakers in 5 years that aren't Dior/visivm/YSL, but i might have to cave in and get those off white canvas ones that are one page back..

You ready for this?

I talked to William Gibson last week and during the conversation he stated...

"Those upcoming sneakers we're doing are great, i'm really happy with the way they turned out. A year ago I did a photoshoot in Tokyo with TOYO and during the shoot i was wearing the samples of the Un Con Weapons and they loved them and this upcoming release is the outcome of that inspiration they took.."

I thought nothing of it, and now you saying what you did...

I saw those and I thought to myself, "I would never wear Undefeated stuff."

But I keep looking at them. "I would never wear Undefeated stuff."

"Would I?"
