As long as Nike doesn’t plaster Michael Jordan crap and those little swoosh signs all over the Converses and the price doesn’t go up to $150.00, then I don’t have a problem (Although the three-year-old named Phong in Cambodia working for .002 cents an hour probably does).

all i have to say is the price better NOT go up and the nike sign better stay off of the chucks or sales will most likely fall. i know alot of converse lovers who hate this buy out. thank you.

i dont care about nike buying converse, just as long the chucks stay exactly the way theyare meaning no nike or whatsoever signs printed on them… and lets hope they do not boost the price up high

The function of the artist is to provide what life does not.

Advertising is 85% confusion and 15% commission.

Buildings burn. People die. But real love is forever.
