Footwear: Converse PL76

Back in the day, when leather sneakers just arrived on the scene in the 70s, they were the best sneakers to get. I had a pair similar to these and of course the minute they got dirty, you made every effort to clean them. Some even used a white polish which ends up looking like a creamy paint added on top. I hate that look and would rather they age gracefully with the scuffs.

In 2012, the olders style keeps coming back. It’s simple, the lines are clean and the logo and colors are easy. It’s like what Dr J was wearing back in the day – in a game. Yes, he did. Believe it or not, this is what people caged in. PL in the name is simply Pro Leather. No gimmicks and clean. Glad to wear them and you can find them as part of the new collection.
