    After a few months of heavy use, my Converse start to look like that anyway, and I don’t even have to pay $128 for the privilege. I wouldn’t pay that much for an intact pair!

    I completely agree.
    They are absolutely ugly, and, considering the fact that a new unshredded pair of chucks costs about 60 Euros, why should I pay this much for a destroyed one? I know how to use scissors…
