Converse Now Selling Dirty, Pre-Scuffed Sneakers For People Too Busy To Break In Their Own Shoes

If you’ve ever owned a pair of Converse sneakers, you’ve experienced the long and arduous process of breaking them in.

Do Not Want: Converse Hightop Sandal

C’mon, Converse, you could not possibly be serious with this shoe. This sandal is a travesty. As an environmentalist, I am appalled.

Do Not Want: Serial Killer Shoes

These “Splatter Sneakers” from Shopbop are currently on sale for 50 bucks, but they were originally $170, which begs the question: who would pay almost $200 for a pair of Converse with red paint stains? Two answers come to mind: an abstract painter with a trust fund or a serial killer. I don’t like either…

Fashion Slideshow: The Simplest Canvas Sneakers

Now and Then is one of those classic girls-coming-of-age movies. Most of the action takes place in the 1970s, so actresses Christina Ricci, Thora Birch, Gaby Hoffmann, and Ashleigh Aston Moore got to wear some pretty sweet clothes. (I hope I’m not the only one to think cut-off jean shorts, plaid shirts, and the most…
