let’s converse

July 1, 2021

My first pair of Converse weren’t even Converse. I bought my knockoffs at a small, dusty shoe shop in a suburb of Athens and they were the colour of Hubba Bubba. Pink has always been my favourite colour. After that, came red ones. Letterbox red. And they were the real thing. Then came the best ones. The classic canvas. I had at least three pairs of those. I kept them well passed their discard date until the canvas was torn in five places and the eyelets fell off. Come to think of it, I don’t see Converse all that often these days. Which in my book is a cue to buy a new pair.
