    Rubber Converse

    What is the general opinion on the rubber converse boots which are getting press again. I hate getting wet feet, but don't always want to be in boots or risk getting my jack purcels hacked up...

    I like 'em. Was looking at getting either a pair of those or some of the deconstructed Ctas, but ended up getting these instead...




    And then I bought a pair of the burnished suede Cons from KG.

    Those Varvatos ones are super comfortable btw.. they have an extra-super cushioned inner sole. Probably not great for the rain though ... the suede ones neither, come to think of it.

    I probably wouldn't get them for their water resistance. Its a fasion concept and I reckon the leather ones would do just as good for the same . Like the yellow ones though

    Did you ever get the painted pair which you were quite poetic about?

    I've also thought about the rubber Cons. I've recently got a monochrome white leather pair which I love. Was thinking about the all black ones.

    I hear they have a shearling/wool lining?
    I would go out tonight, but I haven't got a stitch to wear.....

    All black rubber converse look a bit bondage to me. Reckon they'd go well with a gimp mask.
