For what they are $60 just seems like a lot! Plus shipping because my daughter wanted burgandy ones. I don't mind spending $60 or even more on a pair of shoes for her she's 14 so it's not like she tears her shoes up or outgrows them in a week converse just seem so cheaply made. Uh well as long as she has shoes shes happy with I'm happy. I'll stick to my $30 on sale nike running shoes.

You think that they're cheaply made? Hmm. I've had a pair for over 5 years. Never had a single problem with wear and tear. They're still in great shape though I don't wear them daily I do wear them often.

Do you have an outlet near you? They usually carry more colors at outlets AND no shipping. =) Much cheaper too!

Then you say no and pick a different kind of shoe or you tell her to pay for them on her own.

They are worth it. My dd has lots of Converse. They last her awhile and she is really hard on shoes.
