Vans for J. Crew washed canvas sneakers.
I have worn my favourite pair of Converse for nearly six years. I don’t care how dirty, grungy or worn down they get but my massage therapist thinks otherwise. He told me that they were wearing down on the outside edge at the heel, which would eventually affect my balance/weight distribution when walking. Not good. Begrudgingly, I searched for an affordable replacement, looking for something other than Converse. I picked out these navy Keds this weekend. Not terribly exciting but they’ll be great for running to and from classes this fall. And at $40, it won’t be the end of the world to replace them on my student budget.
