Converse has a new collection out called "Well Worn Collection". They are made of a washed, slightly distressed canvas to give you the look of a "well worn" sneaker. But are we losing the authenticity here? I've always been a Chuck Taylor fan, but part of the experience is wearing them out yourself...and it really doesn't take long. Same with distressed jeans, I think part of the greatness of a "well worn" anything is doing it yourself. The memories and experiences that go along with that certain shoe or pair of jeans. What do you think?
I think I'll go for a classic Chuck Taylor and rough it myself. Thanks.
