I think these ‘interview’ type of conversations are for two reasons. The first is that the person is simply curious. This is the Internet in which a lot of what we say can be misinterpreted.

I think these ‘interview’ type of conversations are for two reasons. The first is that the person is simply curious. This is the Internet in which a lot of what we say can be misinterpreted. Sometimes people ask you questions for clarity and not so much to grill you in the hot-seat for the sake of it.

The second reason is that there is a likely chance they don’t really have much in common with you. It makes sense when you just stop and think about it. If you come across someone you can’t relate to or don’t understand then you’re more likely to pound them with questions. It’s not ‘interrogating’ in the sense that they’re probing you for any suspicious activity under the light. But it is trying to grasp who you are which is something that isn’t always accomplished.

After Chuck Taylor began supporting Converse with design advice and suggesting few changes, the All Stars Brand was born and Chuck Taylor’s signature took its place on the ankle patch. Due to Chuck Taylor’s basketball playing experience, an early change was to add a non slip sole to the shoe. Classic black remains the most popular choice of colour; unbleached white high tops were a personal favourite of the man who is responsible for the design as it is today.

Although Converse started out aimed more towards the basketball players and fans, in the 1970′s a large amount of celebrities started to wear Converse All Stars. This created a huge fashion trend with many people attempting to emulate the style of their favourite stars. And in the 1990′s Converse All Stars were once again a much sought after shoe, with Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain choosing to wear the shoes due to the bands that he used to listen to in his youth also wearing them. Many Nirvana fans soon followed Kurt’s lead and also began wearing the shoes as well. Converse All Stars are still very fashionable today amongst a large amount of children, teenagers and young adults.
