Want: Converse Addict Low



—01. Simple colorway, goes with everything and will last.


The white canvas sneaker is and has always been a fairly important item to have on a day to day basis, especially during the summer. I like it with chinos, denim and shorts so pretty much all the bases are covered. Lately my Vans have taken a fair beating and I have been looking for something to step in and shoulder some of the weight. Converse is an obvious choice but I've never really worn All Stars and have been wanting something slightly different. I've heard good reviews of the Converse Addict range that released in Japan last year and have been trolling eBay and Yahoo auctions lately for the low cut white canvas version. The Vibram sole, extra cushioning and slightly higher rand definitely have me close to pulling the trigger.

I have gone through about four pairs of vans in the past and decided to try some chuck's this summer. If you have narrow feet, you will not be disappointed. Also, the added eyelets gives more overall support. I wonder how much more comfortable these premium versions are?

Maybe they're less comfortable. It's a wonder we sleep at night.

I don't mean to sidetrack the focus of this post, but I am entranced by those pants.

Any clue as to the origin?

what the hell. They have Vibram soles?

The pants are Comme des Garçons SHIRT's from this summer.
