Another thing I enjoy collecting is Converse tennis shoes. Some women collect expensive designer high heels, I collect tennis shoes! heh A few of my Converse are missing, because they are lost in my room right now. Also, I do have shoes other than Converse. Maybe those will be for another blog.

black
Here we have your standard issue black lo-rise Chuck Taylor All Stars. A staple. You must have these if you are going to have any Converse!
blacksequins
You can never go wrong with black, so how about a little black sequins? Fabulous! These shoes are fairly new and I just love them. Yes, there are really little sequins all over these shoes! They seem to hold up fairly well too. I have even worn them in the rain.
blacktear
These shoes are really interesting and you might not notice it at first, but they are tear away shoes. What does that mean? On the top layer is black fabric and underneath there is different fabric. The shoes were made to have the black torn off however you like it. Tear a little, tear a lot! It is up to you! What a crazy/wonderful idea!
bluewhitestar
These white shoes with blue decoration are pretty classic and preppylicious! They are way comfortable and I love the styling. Simple, sweet, what more could a girl ask for?
candycane
I think these candy cane stripe shoes are just adorable! They are great for the holidays or all year ’round! They have a green interior and tongue, but the outside is almost good enough to eat with its candy cane stripes! :)
green
You’d be surprised at how many things green can go with. I love these green Converse! Something about them just brightens my day. I say if you are only going to have a couple of pairs of shoes, then you should get some green Converse. You can’t go wrong!
greentapestry
Speaking of green. I got these greenish tapestry-like gems a couple of years ago. I have seriously never seen anything like them. They are very unique and I really enjoy them!
leopard
This leopard pair is my own creation! On Converse.com you can create your own pair of Converse from scratch! There is pink stitching, aqua blue tongues, the interior is pink and on the heel (which you can’t see) it says MEOW! These might be my favorite pair of shoes ever and as far as I know, they are one-of-a-kind!
maroon
I got these fabulous reddish/maroonish tapestry Converse at the same time that I got the green tapestry ones. Like the green ones, I really enjoy these. I think they are cool, but then again, I pretty much like all of my shoes! haha
blackhi
These are a pair of shoes that I own until I wear holes in them and can no longer strap them together. I don’t know how many pairs of black hi-top Converse I’ve gone through. Not that they aren’t sturdy, but I’ve seemingly walked a million miles in my black hi-tops. From protest marches, to wild homeless excursions, my black hi-tops have always been there. This pair is actually kind of new. I love the black hi-top. All other shoes could discontinue, but if they ever discontinue this shoe I will be devastated.
oldblue
You might not want to see a grungy old pair of torn up blue hi-tops, but I felt the need to lovingly display them here. Like my black hi-tops, I have traveled a lot in these old blue shoes. I can barely lace them, lest the seams rip right apart, but I always hate throwing away my Converse.
oldwhite
Here’s another pair of grungy shoes. Oh if these shoes could tell their tales! It used to be, back in the day, that it was hard to find a pair of Converse. We are talking pre-internet days here people. Well, one of the colors that was a bit difficult to find for some reason was this standard issue, old school off white. I might have even been looking for bright white at the time, but I’m glad I have these off-white canvas hi-tops. Gotta love ’em!
pink
These pink lo-tops are absolutely sweet! I really love the pink. I still haven’t been able to find the Hello Kitty Converse, so until then, I will have my sweet pinks. Aren’t they adorable?
pinkvelvet
These shoes are absolutely great! They have pink lining and the shoelaces are a special infused pink something or other. The black isn’t just any black, it is actually black velvet! These shoes feel so comfortable, because the velvet is a bit stretchy or something. These shoes definitely rank high on my list of favorites!
pinkplaid
You know there has to be some goodness in the world if a pair of pink plaid Converse exist! Yes, pink plaid. What else can I say? I love them!
purcellplaid
Oh, and plaid isn’t only in pink! These are in the Jack Purcell style and they feature a lovely red, off white and black plaid. These shoes are incredibly comfortable! These are also my first pair of Jack Purcell’s. I really like them a lot!
redsequins
I think Dorothy would be proud of these red sequins Converse. These are new to my collection. I have to say, I have always loved the “Wizard of Oz” and I always wanted a pair of red sequins shoes just like Dorothy! Converse, thank you for making my dreams come true! Seriously, how can you get any better than this?!?
silversequins
Okay, I know you thought the red sequins were fierce (and they are), but these silver sequins shoes reflect the light in a way that is just stunning! Sometimes when I wear these I just get distracted and keep staring at my feet when I should be conversing with other people! haha. How fabulous! I can’t even say! I love these!
patriot
Oh yes! For those times when I’m feeling patriotic all I have to do is whip out these babies! I’m not actually into flag waving and stuff, but I really do like the way they turned the stars and stripes into something really interesting with these shoes.
whitewhite
Nothing like a pair of crisp, white, white shoes to get you to where you need to go! Even though these are a bit plain, I really do like them a lot. And, I prefer the white, white in the low-top as shown here. A great pair of shoes!
xmastrees
I *just* got these Christmas tree shoes. They were on sale, because it was after Christmas and everything. They came with red laces and white laces! How will I ever decide! I haven’t actually worn them yet. I think the little trees are adorable and the tongue of the shoe is red. Sweet!
yellowpatch
Just when you thought I would run out of cute shoes, here I am again with these yellow patch shoes! I love yellow and I love these shoes. I actually had some pale yellow lo-tops, but they got worn out and destroyed, so I had to throw them away. So, now at least I have some yellow shoes. They brighten any day!
Well, that’s it for now! I have a few other pairs that are lost in my room and some on order. I guess I’ll post those later. I hope you like my shoe collection! And, in case you’d like to get another dose of it, here is the video I made with my shoes below:
