feet don't fail me now
I love my new Converse All-Stars. I've been wearing them all the time. I wore them to teach in today, accessorized by a matching black-and-white shirt-and-pants combination. I had a student afterwards comment that the white part of the shoes were so bright as to be almost blinding and confusion inducing to someone watching me (try to) lecture. When I told someone else about this, they suggested that I drag the shoes behind my car for a couple of blocks to give them that hip, scuffed-up look. Kids these days!
