Ugh, what a disgrace to the great Black Sabbath. Heck, how are they even Sabbathy?

Converse needs to stick to basketball and go nowhere else, unfortunately a once great basketball shoe is mandatory footwear for the scene/emo crowd all over Aus, and probably the world. :ugh:

They were numerous also in the 80s and among the thrash metal kids.

It pisses me off how emos have hijacked metal imagery, too. I got a pair of converse because I wanted to tribute my favorite Thrash bands, then everyone was accusing me of being a gay fucking little emo. I never wore them again.

Forgive my ignorance, but how exactly are Converse shoes metal imagery? What is their relation to thrash bands (as in, how is buying Converse shoes a tribute to your favourite bands, to use your words)?

It was part of the 80's thrasher look. Converses, jeans, band shirt, kutte, studded leather and long hair.

I think Anselmo wears them (seen it in pics of Pantera) but apart from that I haven't seen them around much.

Yeah, when I was first getting into metal I bought a Maiden live dvd and saw the studded belts, tight black jeans etc and thought 'holy shit, this is where the emo kids got their look from!'. At the time I was pissed off but nowadays I don't really give a shit about it.

It is kind of annoying how if I mention skinny jeans people will instantly make some crack about emo. Fuck guys, Maiden was sporting the tight pants look decades before some weiner decided to try on his sister's hipster jeans.

Quote:
In the 1950s the shoes became popular within the greaser subculture and amongst many fans of Rockabilly. Fans of punk rock have adopted the shoe as a fashion trend since the late-1970s and many popular punk rock bands, such as the Ramones, have supported the trend by wearing the sneakers. All-Stars became popular again in the 90's grunge culture, especially in the early nineties days of G-funk. There has been a recent re-adoption of them in modern Punk Rock and emo fashion.

It would seem that Converse is a fashion icon related not specifically to metal, but rather to rock music in general. Therefore, the emo subculture is just as entitled to it as metalheads, punks, greasers, what have you. This makes sense to me. When I was in highschool (prior to "emo" being a major fashion phenomenon in Australia), people who listened to rock music (but not metal) and wore Converse shoes were abound.

If Converse is so associated with metal in your mind, then the people who were accusing you of being emo are ridiculous, and so are you for shunning the shoes because of those people. :nono:

The only shoes I wear are a single pair of black boots. All year 'round. I can't stand wearing anything else. These shoes seem kind of blech to me.

Some of you guys seem pretty insecure about wearing Converse. Chucks are damn comfy, though.

Those leather ones look kinda dumb, but the Vol. 4 one looks ok, but I still probably wouldn't wear it. I wouldn't bother with band shoes at all as I'd obsess over trying to keep them clean and nice-looking.

Like the Maiden and Misfits ones that came out before. I'd rather stick with black converse high-tops if I'm going to go that way, but cool.

I've been working on a new black denim vest and the back patch is SAB VOLUME 4 with the Zeppelin runes symbols directly above it.

The fact is, Converse All-Stars (high tops especially) are the most classic looking sneaker you can buy. Just like wearing 501's blues (or blacks) and a motorcycle jacket is classic. It goes a million ways, and you can break it down by sub-genre; but the only separation could be the t-shirt you wear and your hairstyle...but all in all it's rock and roll no doubt and extremely classic. You can't go wrong with All-Stars.

White Nike high-tops are far more metal.

I wouldn't know, hey. I'm with TheUglySoldier on this one - black boots all the way. They're the only footwear I own, and they're all I need - plain, comfortable and durable. I've known people (males and females) who make a big deal about shoes, buying all sorts of novel footwear with interesting/fashionable designs, but that just isn't for me. :ugh: And if emo kids started wearing black boots, I would not care.

I have a pair of Iron Maiden ones already, and the designs on the black sabbath ones don't look good enough for me to pick up a pair. Still I find it pretty cool that they exist.

It pisses me off that it's hard to find a decent leather jacket these days, I can only find the retarded matrix style ones that all the strange goths wear. Converse is fine, I still wear them, despite one time being very drunk and cutting myself out of them. I couldn't figure out laces!

How's about taking fashion tips from Cathedral, no way anyone is going to mistake you for a scene kid in their garb!

Well, I don't wear All-Stars very much anymore, but if I'm wearing a sneaker (unless I'm going to work out) it's going to be the All-Star. Most times though I wear black motorcycle boots or combats.

Maybe the Nike is more metal, but I never was into white anything for clothes, never mind white boots or sneakers. Black is my choice forever.

White is an interesting colour, but the idea of wearing white boots/sneakers is, to me, hilarious. :lol: And unthinkable.

Black. :metal:

Ha, I meant the really vintage paisley shirts and stuff, I always liked that kind of thing... with flairs of course. Trust MA to have a pic that proves me wrong.

But I couldn't actually afford those converse, I didn't cut through the laces I went through the fucking shoe itself. I was gutted in the morning!

Black. :metal:


It's been unthinkable to me since I was asking my mom for black shoes in the 70's and they didn't make them for toddlers and grade schoolers. Seriously.

I don't think WHITE looks very rock and roll anyway, period. It always looked too cheezy to me and I have never owned a pair of white sneakers or boots ever, even in my hair metal heydey. It always was such an LA glam thing or in my area a deep Jersey or Long Island mid 80's thing. Those people also wore Guess stonedwashed jeans and had curly perms which was all a big yuck to me and always to me was so much of a mall look. Anyway, that's what white boots or sneakers will always remind me of. Although white platform shoes may be different story. I know, I'm weird.

Certain things mixed with white might be ok, like grey for instance :lol: Just kidding.

A truly metal outfit requires Golden Pantaloons, Silver Pantaloons, and Bronze Pantalettes.

:beer: to that!

Though seriously, I always thought of real trainers when thinking of thrash and death metal.I always preferred Adidas to Nike, mind you - the classic black leather with three white leather stripes down them. :metal

As for white trainers, I wear white ones when I'm playing cricket, for obvious reasons. Anything else, well, it's just not cricket.

These are what I wear. Unfortunately, these are what the modern hXc kids wear these days, but I think they looks nice. They don't go way out there in terms of design like most shoes these days.

I've taken to wearing ex-military boots which I forgot to give back to cadets when I left :D
I don't think they were technically meant to issue footwear anyway due to ridiculous hygiene rules.

I like those Vol 4 shoes. Were Converses less expensive and I liked the overall style, I'd get some.

I wear my 2 years old used black converse (the ''normal'' ones) and i like them, they're confortable. I don't care about what people thinks, i mostly buyed them cause i wanted black yet good looking shoes (it's a shame that scenesters/emos adopted those shoes, though they're starting to be more into those slip on type of shoes http://www.skateattack.co.uk/images/pro ... SlipOn.jpg). I might buy boots soon though.

I would never buy anything Converse sells, even if it did have Vol. 4 on it.
