The Converse Blog's Weapon Wednesday: The Goods.

The NBA Playoffs are in full swing. Everyone seems to be salivating for a Lakers vs Celtics Final. If this does end up being the finals match up then I would love to see a full run of what I have pictured below. Larry Bird's Black and White vs Magic's Purple and Gold. I am not going to say much today, I really just wanted to post the pictures and let you enjoy them. They could even run the old commercial again, which I guess they would need permission from Magic and Bird. Either way, it is because of these shoes and who wore them that (nearly) every Wednesday is Weapon Wednesday here at the Converse Blog. Just take a minute to stare at them and let them marinate in your mind.

Hey, I really like your blog. I'm trying to find out what a specific Converse design was called--I bought them, already well-used, in a thrift store in 1998. They were all black lowtops with two whitish reflective stripes over the toe, up the tongue, and I think down the back heel. They seem like shoes from the 60s or 70s, though I can only guess. Later I ran into someone who had gray Converse in the same style. Any idea what these were called? I'd love to see a flashback about 'em! (& I'd love more to get another pair--I wore these every day for three years, until the soles had worn through and my heels touched the ground!)

Sadly, I would say eBay is your best bet right now.
