I got this Converse as a gift 3 or 4 years ago from one of my closest friend and I've never used them, but last Wednesday I said "ehh.. why not?" and I put them on and went to school; an hour later all I wanted was to take them off! This are the most uncomfortable shoes I ever worn. So I will stick to my "girlyness" of my lovely heels and for school flats, ballet, boots, and gladiators. Do you find Converse comfortable?
