first converse lace-ups

April 3, 2009 |  Category:   happy purchases


I think it’s some kind of rite of passage when a kid gets their first pair of converse sneakers. Saw these at the mall over the weekend and couldn’t pass them up. First, the gray M&M’s and then these super bright orange/pink stitching Converse with black laces. So freaking cool. Mia wasn’t too excited about them at the store as she was so distracted by the Crocs (what is with Crocs and kids??), but as soon as she put them on for school the next day, she jumped around the apartment when she saw how colorful they were on her feet.

Very rainy Friday today, but hopefully it will clear for the weekend. Got some fun plans tomorrow, stay tuned…

    I love Converse. Lo has a pair of black velcro ones and I can’t wait until he’s old enough for lace ups. He looks so cute when he’s with Dave in his matching grown up Converse. Nichole, however, is the Converse queen.

    I heard about Nichole’s legendary collection. I was the kind of kid that painted over my canvas and doodled and painted on them.

    I just put an old pair of Amelia’s red converse on Leon the other day. Love them. Now I want to go out and get some black laces and do em up!

    I first came to know about you site thru Sarah (wordsatplay) and I am IN LOVE w/ your treats … I’m waiting to get down a few pounds before I completely give in and gain them all back on your marshmallows and cookies …

    This is a great picture … and some great sneakers … I’m in complete agreement about the first pair of Converse sneaks … and I also mirror the same question about kids and Crocs … my son just yesterday tried to fit his fat little feet into a pair we have that stopped fitting him about a year ago … Now I have to buy him another pair ….

    I think it’s apart of the Brooklyn wardrobe as well. At least in Williamsburg. But they have to be black. I didn’t have a pair. So they kicked me out… with their black Converses on. 😉

    Love those little feet – first Converses are definitely worth documenting!

    Love those colors, especially the stitching.
    As for the croc mania, which our family has been plagued by as well, here’s an outlook:
