Yeah or Nay?

As some of you, my all-time favorite band is The Clash. 30 years later and I still listen to them regularly. So, imagine my surprise when I saw that one of my favorite brands of all-time, Converse, was putting out a limited edition Clash sneaker.

My only problem? I still can't figure out whether they are cool. And if so, which of the three do you all like best? Would appreciate your thoughts on this very important manner.

Allow me to be the first one to chime in, here...

Sorry, Howard, but I think the sneakers are weak. Listen to the music. That's what makes your heart pump and your soul sing. No clothing can do that.

A silly pair of sneakers will give you nothing but blisters.

I'll be second.

If you're 24 and wear skin-tight black jeans, a leather jacket with lots of zippers, a torn Anarchy T-shirt, black eye-liner and nail polish, these would be perfect.

If you're 42 and wear "business-casual" attire to work and running-shorts and Nike T-shirts on the weekends, I'd say no.

and was your dad trying to say your feet deserve an orgasm? because that made me giggle.

i like the black ones. but don't picture you in that "look" . DF said it right.

You are the coolest guy I know and if you want to wear any of the sneakers I saw that were listed go for it. I don't exactly agree with what your dad said but just let your feet be comfortable. If they hurt everything else will too!
