Yesterday I decided to carry out a little experiment and see how many people I could spot wearing Converses or at least footwear that looked like Converses on the London Underground.
There were a lot of them and I didn't go on a particularly unusual journey to spot them. The picture above has my foot on the left with my new-(ish) black and red Converses (see below) sitting next to woman wearing the traditional black and white All Stars.
I got off at Hammersmith and there were loads of them:
This rock guy above won the "Too Cool for School" Converse on the Tube award. Other Glamoursmith ones are below including a couple of pretenders:
Onto the Piccadilly Line and there were several more:
Plus a guy wearing Merrells (I've been corrected in the comments - thanks) Etnies - which aren't Converses I know and much more blokey (I think)
Coming home late there weren't so many or I was too tired to spot them. There was a guy in some Vans (again not Converses)
But my favourites were a group of girls with Converses and Onya bags. They rocked - cool and green at the same time.
Look out for Converses on your Tube journey today and let me know how many you see. Feel free to count yourself if you're wearing them.
