One of my regular readers, Jorge, sent me some interesting material. It seems that Converse does not have the right to the term "All Star" or the "Star" logo on footwear in some countries, This results in interesting shoes like these...

Foreign non-Converse "All Star" sneakersHere are some "All Star" sneakers, but they aren't Converse All Star sneakers. At the currency conversion rate a while back, Jorge reported that they're $1.60 a pair. Note that these "All Star" sneakers kept the double layer cloth toe reinforcement that Converse has lost over the years.


How about some New Stars instead?
