believe it or not, due to the "omg like Avril is soo00 punx RaWk" trend,  people were selling old beat up converse on ebay.. and people were actually buying them. They wanted them to look like they were always.. "punX raWk teehee!!1" and had owned them for a long time. So I'd try that. I'd sell mine if I wasn't attatched to them.

if you hit up one concert with a pair of new chucks....they get old looking pretty fast. I learned that when I saw dashboard confessional with thrice...I got stepped on a lot. Simple as that. They looked old really fast...anyways, back on topic.

I just read an article a couple of weeks ago in the SF Chronicle about teens getting creative decorating their rooms. One girl uses her old Converse as small shelves. Here's a photo:



She's got her George Bush voodoo doll in the close-up one, but you can look further down the wall and see that she's got some other stuff stuck into the other ones... an iPod cord, perhaps?

Here's the whole article.

Funky and practical!
