  • I think they're really cute for kids and teenagers...grown women, not so much. I don't see any reason why you shouldn't buy a pair for your daughter, if it's in your budget for Christmas.

  • I've heard of them and seen them. A few of my friends have been trying to talk me into getting some because I want a pair of Converse SO bad lol (I have for the past 7 years or so, but my mom would never buy them and then I chose Vans over Converse when DH bought me shoes, since the didn't have the ones I'd wanted). Ah! Sorry for the babbling lol, my brain isn't fully functioning right now. I think they're cute, but they would only look good on certain people. I've seen them on a few people, and only one girl was really wearing them. The others just looked like they were trying to be trendy and it looked stupid lol.

  • I have seen a few people wearing them, and they look awful. I hate them! I wouldnt buy them for my kid.....those things cant possibly be worn often enough to offset the price...

  • I used to wear them back in the late 70's early 80's. But with a bootie style. Personally do not like them but it is a skater look with the tight jeans.

  • It's been a while since I've seen them, but here is a pair:

    There are many styles to choose from ... not something I'd wear, but they are cute.
