I Love You, Converse Shoreline
After looking everywhere online for a decent review on the Shoreline design of Converse, I was frustrated I couldn't find one. This is for the person, like me, out there looking, here you go!
I'm not going to go into the painful details of being 7 months pregnant and trying to bend over to tie your shoes. I also won't go into the visual details of how swollen my feet are. So when I saw Converse made a shoe that's easier to slip on, I wanted to try it. The reviews on different websites and YouTube told me the same thing- they were canvas, cute, and comfortable. What I really wanted to know was did I have to break them in, was the sizing different and can my huge feet fit in them right now?
The laces are pre-tied and have a lycra material to them, for when the canvas expands, so will the rest of the shoe.
The elastic back has enough give to feel comfortable as soon as you slip them on.
During the really swollen summer days, I wasn't sure if that small elastic on the back was enough but I discovered more stretch! I swear these are like yoga pants for your feet.
There were a lot of poor reviews on the sizing. I've always worn a size 7 (men's 5) in these classic cuts, but I took my chances. Even with comfy socks, the 7 fits as if they were made for me, painful edema and all.
