Thank you, Converse!

A giant box arrived at my doorstep today, return address: Converse. I opened it up to find a pair of Dwayne Wade 4’s and a pair of Elton Brand 1’s! Oh and matching t-shirts! This site might not be making me rich but stuff like this is nice. Thank you to all the great people over at Converse! PS – If anyone over at Blackberry wants to send over a Blackberry Bold I’ll take good care of it! (worth a try)

  • that dwayne wade logo is really cool. when i was a kid and got new sneakers, we would initiate them by getting them all dirty. i don’t think that’s done these days ;). sneakers are a lot more expensive and collectible. are you going to actually where them, outside?

  • well not necessarily outside ill keep one pair for strictly indoor courts but i will play basketball in them for sure, im not the type to keep sneakers in a shoe box. i have absolutely murdered some shoes that woulda made some sneaker collectors cringe but they are meant to be worn!

  • oh and yea i like that logo alot

  • right on!

  • Jolin
