The old Converse sneakers I took around the world

These were my old Converse sneakers I took with me on my RTW trip. I bought them days before I left America on what ended up being a trip I’m kind-of still doing today. The Converse sneakers lasted until shortly after I arrived in Berlin, where I replaced them for an exact same pair.

They were basically my only shoes during the trip, though I did spend much of my travels during the summer so I wore a lot of flip-flops (and occasionally went barefoot when camping out on beaches in India).

You can read about my big round-the-world trip in the two summary posts:

    The converse shoes is indeed a good one to have while travelling. The one in the image would have narrated a long story about your travel if it had a mouth.

  2. I bought my first pair of these (as an adult had tons when I was a kid) When I was in Morocco in 2009 and am now on my third pair! haha :)

    I realized the first ones were dead when I was walking around London on a wet day and my right foot started to “squish” every time I took a step and I realized there was a hole right through the bottom haha :)
