Now here's a set of shoes that when the insignia isn't showing, is indistinguishable from the real deal. I've worn a pair of these and kids who themselves are wearing Converses can't tell the difference until I point it out.
What do these shoes cost you ask? A full $12. That's right, $12. They are long lasting, comfortable and well, cheap!
I will admit that if you wear them every day they are going to get worn out and the rubber on the sides will go, but then all you need to do is get another identical $12 pair.
