On the last segment of the Shoe Porn series I showed you my beautiful fibi & clo flat sandals. This time around I wanted to show you high heels, I really did, but then I wore my awesome green Converse this weekend to a concert and well- they just make me so happy. I bought my very first pair of Converse when I first moved to the City and I was interning with a major fashion stylist. There was sooooo much running around that I needed a sensitive shoe. However, I couldn’t stand the simpleness of the Lo-Tops, so I pimped them out with studs. You can see my little DIY project here, on the early days of the blog. Then, right before I went to Coachella for the very first time last year I got my very first pair of high tops, a red pair you first saw here, and also here.

On their own, Converse are not very comfy. They lack the arch support to keep you happily standing on your feet for hours. However, I keep two insoles inside mine at all times. One to add extra cushion to my step (since I only wear Converse when I know I will be on my feet a lot) and one with an arch. I got these green ones second hand at a thrift store for $15. They looked like they had been worn maybe two or three times. As you know, with Converse, the dirtier they are the better they look.  It took me a looooooong time to get them nice and dirty. Not even Coachella this year was able to give me the look I wanted. Finally, this past weekend, when I went to see r3hab at Governors Island, I was able to achieve the dirty look I wanted- thanks to sand, a bit of rain, and all the people who stepped on my feet. Funny how I’m so careful with my heels, but I can’t seem to get my sneakers dirty enough!

Are you a fan of Converse?
