Converse have a dirty little trick up their sleeve with this new stunt – as they announce the launch of a FILTHY pair of all-stars for £70.
The Chuck Taylor All Star Basic Wash has caused quite a stink online, with people raging at the brand for having the cheek to sell a pair of dirty shoes.
Available in blue or what used to be white, the classic shoe has been given a ‘dirt wash treatment’ to give it that lived-in feel.
The description reads: “Classic Chuck features get an aged makeover in the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Smoke Low Top sneaker. Skip the break-in period.
“A dirty wash treatment gives these classic Chucks a vintage look, straight out of the box.”
People on Twitter are furious, leaving an array of comments on the brands thread.
Another person who posted on Twitter wrote: “Converse deliberately sells dirty trainers for £ 70. I have a couple of dirty Converse that are mainly used for gardening only. They even have a hole in the sole. Yours for £ 70. “
Somebody else said: “The worst part is that they are actually about double the amount of dirty you’d ever want ur converse to be.
“Something unbearable about the idea of eventually going to clean these and knowing that there is a layer of painted on artificial dirt that you can never remove.”
A fourth person tweeted: “Having a pair of dirty converse is the absolute worst. Baffled as to why anyone would buy them like that.”
So, would you want a pair of dirty converse? And would you pay more for them than a clean pair?
