Recycling Your Old Converse

  • Pin it

Most of you (and by that I include myself into this kind of thinking) say to yourself that wearing out your trusted pair of Converse sneakers will surely diminish their (market) value. Here’s the Free People to prove us reverse economy is a reality.

Their recently issued Converse look really, really worn out. The Free People say that the sneakers have been hand ripped and washed to shred them as vintage-y as possible. Now if you ask me, I think we can find far better ways to spend $128 than this, not to mention that you old, torn Converse have a sentimental value, way more important than a hundred bucks a Converse-pair can bring. That’s just me. How about you? (via)

This kind of thing always driven me crazy. It’s the same with ripped/worn jeans. Dude, they’re going to look like that one day anyway – and I dunno about the rest of you folks but the reason I buy new jeans is often because my old ones have become ripped or too worn-looking.
Who wants to look like a hobo? Seriously?
