So those are my last remaining Chucks.
They are about half my age.
I had a used black pair in high school and got the blue ones when those died.
I also had a pair of all black high tops for a long time but they too disintegrated.
I thought I’d replace these with a pair of the new water resistant Polartec models:
But ha ha because you could only get them in Canada via Livestock.
Two weeks after they were launched, I’m told by Livestock that they’re out of them and have no plan to restock.
I can’t order them directly from Converse.com because look:
No doubt some of you are thinking:
“Kathy, why don’t you just finally stop wearing cliche-cartoon-character-teenager shoes anyhow? You look like an idiot.”
So now I have to decide between black and blue, and I can’t even get those from Livestock because they’re out of my size.
But they don’t have blue even if I want it.
Hey, look: Every colour but blue here.
I still resent the hell out of Converse right now, but not enough to stop buying their crap.
OK it looks like I can choose between blue and black (and more here) and I got a 10% off coupon code for visiting the site.
