8 Reasons You Can't Go Wrong With A Pair of Converse, They Are The Heart And Sole Of My Shoe Collection

Converse are one of the most iconic shoes out there. Created in 1917, there popularity has not diminished one bit. These American made shoes are practical and stylish. You may think converse are too mainstream for you, but I hopped on the bandwagon years ago, and I don't think I'll ever get off. Here are multiple reasons why you should join the converse cult with me and millions of other loyal customers:

1. They are resonably priced

Some Converse sell as low as $39. Of course there are more expensive options, depending on your taste, but a lot of brands like Nike, Puma, Addidas, and Under Armour sell some of their shoes for a sky high price that most people can't afford. We can count on converse for being consistent with their prices, usually never getting above $100. Maybe you can even have more than one.

2. They are easy to clean

My black Converse last through it all! Concerts, muddy grass, rainstorms, sticky beverages, and getting stepped on, they never disappoint. Using a damp paper towel cleans up dirt perfectly. I've had pink Converse and green Converse as well, they served me no trouble either. So, yes, white Converse are super trendy but tend to get really dirty. On the bright side, there are hacks all over the internet informing converse lovers how to immediately rid the stains out of light-colored Converse.

3. They are comfortable

I've never complained about how Converse feel on my feet. I'm only one person, but all of my friends who wear Converse seem to enjoy them as much as I do. I'd wear them to a theme park all day or a baseball game in the city. Either way, they don't kill your feet, especially when you wear the appropriate socks.

4. They're fun

Leather, polka dots, hot pink, purple, green, and rainbow are just some of Converse's fun styled shoes. Think of anything whether that be your favorite superhero or the state flag of where you are from, and I'm sure you can get them designed the way you want to.

5.They can be worn with anything

So, I've seen girls and boys wear Converse on their homecoming night in fancy short dresses and a dress shirt and pants. Brides are even known to wear Converse with their wedding gown! I, on the other hand, just wear them with a pair of jeans and leggings on a regular basis. Wearing black and white Converse give you the freedom to match them with any outfit

6. They can be worn anywhere

Like said above, you can wear them to your wedding or homecoming dance, or you can just wear them to the bars, on a walk, or class, whatever you prefer. They are pretty much acceptable anywhere.

7. They are durable

If you are an adventurous person, Converse won't fail you. People go to concerts, bars, festivals, parties, hiking, and more wearing Converse. It can withstand it all!

8. They are ageless

Babies, children, teenagers, parents...who says Converse aren't for everyone?

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
