Thong Converse: WHY?

Seriously: is there any reason in the ENTIRE WORLD why Converse should suddenly need to have a thong front?

No, really: Converse have managed to exist for many, many years so far WITHOUT needing to have a thong front. And we’ve all managed perfectly well without thong-front Converse, too. If we need thongs, we’ll buy thongs. If we need Converse, we’ll buy…thongs, apparently.

Why has this come to pass, readers? And do you want to wear it?

    Well at least there are the laces to keep them on your feet instead of clenching your toes and damaging your feet.

    With all the peep-toe boots and other similar shoes, I’m beginning to think that the designers of these things have been watching Naruto. The characters in this show all wear shoes that look similar to the peep-toe boots we’ve been seeing lately.
