they should arrive soon. i bought a pair of vans last spring, but they aren't the style of vans i usually like, as they can be really uncomfortable. also, the shoelaces come untied every 5 minutes.
i have always found converse all stars to fit well and work well for the activities i do in my sneakers, like walking and hiking. i do not like a lot of cushion in my shoe, and converse has none. it's sort of like being barefoot, but with shoes on. i enjoy being barefoot as often as possible.
