1. You can absolutely trash them and somehow they'll manage to look cooler.
2. God they're comfy.
3. They cost half the price of a pair of Nike Air Max Theas and I assure you they'll definitely last longer.
4. There is every colour and pattern you can imagine in different materials so there's definitely something for everyone.
5. They go with absolutely everything - mom jeans, leather skirts, summer dresses, denim shorts - literally everything! Even David Tennant could rock them with a suit.
6. They last longer than most relationships - I have about 8 pairs of converse and most of them I've had since I was about 15/16 although I do have some classic gingham ones from when I was about 13!
