Converse all-stars dont float

Author – All Stars

Had a friend who wears all stars all the time. When we went fishing together i stupidly dropped my shoe in the water. It’s a white DC skateshoe so i could save it real easy but it was all wet. my mate made fun of my wet shoe and i said his shoe wouldn’t even float. This became a big discussion and i said i would give him a tenner if he made his shoe float for 5 minutes. We had all our gear so we could easily save it, given it floats. He took the bet. I won. Converse All Stars just don’t float but feel free to try for yourself

Lost both my shoes

Author – Melissa

I rode the tram into London. On this particular day I was headed downtown to walk around and the sights. Maybe do some shopping but I was a little low on money so I wasn’t sure. I stepped on to the train around mid morning wearing red high top chucks with yellow bobby socks. I didn’t tie my shoes often and sometimes it would result in my losing one or both of my shoes during every day tasks. One day it was so bad I tripped and lost my shoe and when I went to look for it I couldn’t find it. I was going to be late for work so left it. Another time I fumbled my shoe during a meeting for work while I was dangling and it landed right in the general managers view. My bare stocking foot was showing the whole rest of the meeting. Let’s just I never have good luck with my shoes. And today, going to London was no exception . The tram ride was terrible but my feet hurt from the night before so I took both my shoes off almost immediately after boarding . I left them kind of near isle . People looked in disbelief at my socked soles and my errant shoes. One boy passing my seat brushed by kicking one of them out into the isle. I had to grab it before it got to far away or someone picked up for there own liking . I quickly scooped up my shoes now lieing a few rows down under a seat. I slid my loose shoes back on and made my way back to my seat. Soon I got off at my stop. I had quite a few blocks to cover before I got where I needed to be. Sadly the tram didn’t go all the way I was headed . I didn’t mind . I liked the walk . Some of the parts I walked threw were a bit run down and I got some stares from locals that may not have been the nicest . I kept walking and soon caught notice of 3 girls in leather jackets and bulky leather boots. The kinds that made your stocking feet smell like wet leather and foot sweat. I turned a corner and started up the next block an they had started to get closer . I didn’t have really much of value except my purse and a few dollars. I wasn’t to worried but they persued and finally caught up. Pulling my arm and jerking me back. They interrogated and asked me where I was from. I lived outside the city and that’s all they needed to know. The one in front , big , well all three of these girls were pretty tall and seemed in shape; she asked me if I had anything to give for being on her block. She was just tryin to bully me because I didn’t look from around there I think. I shrugged it off and tryed to leave but she yanked my purse from me . She asked me what else I had and I said nothing. She said she liked my shoes and had the other girls pick me up by my arms while she bent down and yanked my chucks off. As I felt the breeze hit my socked foot as I was let back down on to the pavement by the two girls . I felt super embarrassed jus standing in front of them in my socks as one of the girls held my purse around her shoulder and both of my shoes in one hand. She then asked me what I was looking at and told me to star walking . I couldn’t believe I was jus mugged for my shoes and purse. I padded up the sidewalk in my socks a few blocks and looked back as they all stared and hadn’t moved . I spent the rest of the day in my bobby socks trying to get home . Never saw those girls or my purse or shoes again . Check out my socks here

Party pickup X 4

Author – Jonathan

Ever love it when people have parties but don’t allow footwear into their homes? Well I found such a place and they were having what looked like an awesome party. I didn’t know them but still a shame that I wasn’t invited.  Anyhow I saw a couple of guys wearing nice kicks to this party and having to leave them outside. It was 9 pm and maybe 7 pairs were out. Some guys and some girls but it was way too early to be sneaky. I came back around 11 pm and there were almost 20 pairs stacked nice and neat out there.  I noticed no one outside and music blaring so I approached cautiously. One only has moments to make the grab. I eyed a pair of brown Nike skate shoes to be in my size, a pair of hi-top white converse which also looked to be my size, and a pair of Osiris that definitely weren’t my size but I love Osiris and wanted them. I was finally about to leave when I noticed the shoes from one of the guys I saw earlier just sitting there looking sweet.  As I went to grab them I saw that they were Adidas hi tops in all black and they looked to be my size. As soon as I reached for that last pair I booked home as fast as I could. I can only imagine what those drunkards were saying and doing when they realized that they would have to go home without shoes. Haha. Now I get to enjoy them as much as they did. 🙂 

Unlaced shoe means trouble

Author – Emil

Yesterday I wore to school my blood-red,  low top converse shoes. During the third lesson I noticed, that left one came untied. I thought that I would lace my shoe up on the break. But right before the end of the lesson, at my school a fire alarm was announced. Everyone had to be  evacuate from the building. The class, in which I had a lesson, was on the second floor (european). A stairwell is quite wide, but in that moment was also very crowded and everyone were in a hurry. When I ran downstairs, somebody in the crowd stepped on my heel and pulled my left shoe off my foot. I could not do nothing. There was no chance to come back for my lost shoe. When I glanced backwards, even I didn’t see it. I could only to g downstairs with others, wearing only gray no-show sock on my left foot.  This way I reached to the football pitch, wearing only one shoe. 

When we ran, nobody kept an eye on such things, but when we already waited for the announcement of the director, other boy noticed that I had but one shoe and pointed on my feet to other ones. So they started lauging and teasing me. Soon they announced that it had been a training alert and we can come back to the school. I thought that I would find my lost shoe on a stairwell, where I lost it. But it turned out, that my blood-red converse vanished. But it turned out, that my blood-red converse vanished. I went to the caretaker, thinking that my shoe were in the lost and found box. But it turned out that my shoe is not there either. I tried to find it on staircase again, but but finally I had to go to the class still wearing only my right shoe. And I had to spent rest of my schoolday that way. Worst of all, I also had to went back home still wearing only one shoe.

Dependent store fun

Author – Steve

I went to old navy yesterday and as I was looking at clothes from shirts to socks, I was occasionally trying on some. There was a women out side the dressing room taking note of what people brought it in and out. I walked past her and went into a room to change. As I was in there I was getting excited thinking what would happen if I left my shoes in the dressing room as I left. I get very excited and aroused when playing with my shoes. I wanted to see if I could walk the store in my white thin socks and come back to get my shoes. I figured they would be there when I got back considering they were pretty beat up. I was getting aroused just thinking about it. I slowly slid my socked feet out of my loafers and left them in the corner of the dressing room. Walking out I gave the clothes I didn’t like to the women standing out front. She didn’t see my feet and if she did she didn’t say much, I would of been blushing and embarrassed . I kept walking around the store and got glances and weird looks because of the sock show. I tried to stay away from crowded sections for the most part because my socks were filthy and worn and it made it even more embarrassing going around people and having them stair at my worn socks. After 15 or 20 minutes of browsing in my stocking feet i decided to go back and get my loafers and leave . As I entered the dressing the room no one was in the room I had left them in but when I got in there they weren’t there!? I quickly panicked as I had taken the bus to get there and I would have to humiliate my self riding shoeless in thin white stockings on the way home . I quickly went up to the women out front and asked if she had seen my loafers . To my surprise she said she actually picked the pair of loafers up and took them to the back of the store to be desposed of because she thought someone had left them and then left the store. I was speechless and she stood staring my at socked feet. She couldn’t help me much longer and pointed me in the direction of the shoe isle and left . I didn’t have enough money for new shoes. I left and rode the bus home . Not a very fun experience at all ..

Boat

A true and shame story… 

We were on a cruise, 

The last night of the cruise you were supposed to take out of your bedroom your luggage at exactly 9PM, so they could arrange the disembarkation the following day. You only need to leave a compete set of clothes for the latest day. 

My girlfriend and I were arguing about something the exactly same night. I was so mad, And we got off the cabin still disusing something. When we got to the bar, she told me you were not wearing any shoes. I was wearing some Adidas sport pink socks because they were the only clean left. At the moment, I was mad, dint’t care, so I told her I was fine. She even told me are you sure you keep a pair of shoes for the disembarkation, and I said YES! 

We took some drinks at the bar and forgot about the incident. That night the ship were presenting a movie premier I want to see and told her to get off the bar, back to the stateroom to fill the paperwork for the disembarkation, so I could get the movies on time. 

We got to the stateroom, and I was sure that my sneakers were there. My girlfriend got into the restroom, and I start looking for my shoes to go to the move… And they were gone… 

I started to look frenetically everywhere, and they were not there. 

Some how I put them on the suitcase, and I will find them the next day at the port… 

When my girlfriend realized, she took a big simile and told me what are going to do? 

I told her I would go to the store and buy a pair of flip flops, and then go to the movies. I got the stores, and they were closed… 

So there was nothing to do… 

I went to the movies shoeless, wearing Nike PINK socks, only thinking about the disembarkation shoeless…. 

After the movies, I went to the bar expecting no one looked at my feet. 

I meet some girls at the bar, and they realized that I have Nike’s sport PINK socks… yes they were my last pair… On my defense … they were less expensive than the black ones…. 

They really got fun out of the situation… 

Suddenly one of them told us to go for a smoke, She told me hey you pink socks go with us… 

After a couple of drinks I got back to my room shoeless… 

Expecting the following day to disembark in PINK socks…. 

My girlfriend told me, look what I found a pair of shoes… I was so relief… 

But… 

I will get it back …

Tomorrow we’re going on a cruise again. She has the suitcase packed… 

But… She will only find … 

-A pair of converse a left red and a right white, 

– A pair of running sneakers one orange and one red without laces, 

– Formal shoes … gone… 

And the socks… mismatched pairs … Yellow… Red… Green… 

And the Rest of the underwear …   

At the movies

This is a fantasy story, but loosely based on true events. 😜

A friend and I went to the movies. We got there pretty early so we’re waiting for the trailers to start and there weren’t many people in the screen we were in. He was wearing some lo top converse and I was wearing some lo DC’s.

We were just messing around and I realised that his converse would fit through the gap between the seats on the floor. He wore them pretty loose so I managed to surprise him by hooking my foot round his heel and getting his converse off. Before he could react I had pushed it through the gap in the seats. It fell down the step into the row infront which was currently empty.

I started laughing and, as I was laughing, he reached down and grabbed my foot, pulling off my DC. I tried to grab ur but the threw it over the seats so it was now also in the row infront.

Whilst we were messing about seeing who was gonna go get our shoes, we noticed 2 guys heading up the row infront of us. The trailers had started by now so the screen was semi dark. They sat right in front of us.

We looked at each other. There was no way we were getting our shoes before the end of the movie. I was hoping they wouldn’t see them in the semi darkness but we couldn’t be sure. My friends converse was under the seat but my DC would be right in the middle of the row.

The movie started and we were sat there in one shoe each. To get more comfy, I put my leg up so it was resting on my other leg. After a few minutes, my friend grabbed my DC off my foot and kept it next to him. 

I was now sat in my white socks and couldn’t doll anything to get my DC back as the movie was on. Then my friend said he needed the toilet. As I saw him leave I realised he had my DC on one foot and his converse in the other.

Whilst he was gone I realised the rather large drink I had bought was making me need to pee as well so I waited till he got back and asked him for my shoe as I needed to pee. He replied by saying, ” you get my converse, I’ll give you your shoe”. There was no way I was getting his converse during the movie and I really needed to pee so I had to go in my socks. 

I picked the wrong timing as when I got to the toilet, I realised another movie had just finished and there were loads of people. I managed to get into a stall without too many people noticing my shoeless dilemma. I could feel the slightly damp floor seeping into the material of my socks and quickly left keeping my head down and got back to my seat.

The rest of the movie happened and it finally finished. My feet were getting cold and I couldn’t wait to get back into my dcs. I’d kept an eye on the guys in front and they didn’t seem to have noticed the shoes in their row.

The film ended. We sat and waited for the guys infront to leave, and most of the other people so we didn’t get too many weird looks. They left.

I asked my friend for my shoe and he just smiled at me. ” where’s my shoe” I asked. He just smiled and said, “while you were in the toilet, I pushed it through the gap in the seats to the row infront.” he started laughing. I smiled and stood up.

I climbed over the row to find my dcs. They weren’t there. I searched under the seats but they weren’t there. I found a converse, but it wash my friends. It was lo but white, my friends was black. I laughed and threw it at him, “there you go” I said. He looked really annoyed but put started to put on the mismatched converse.

I was still screwed, but I thought I’d check the row infront. I spotted something. I jumped over the row and found a pair of shoes, but they weren’t mine. They were a beaten up pair of DC court graffix. They were once white but weren’t now. The guys must have been skaters because the laces had been tied together and the sides were all scuffed. I had nothing else to do so I slid my foot into one. It was slightly damp, felt pretty loose and I could feel the guys foot indent in the sole. My dcs were pretty new but the ones I now had on my feet really weren’t. 

My friend and I left the theatre but didn’t see the guys, or our shoes again.
