Strangest Converse Shoe in History



Do you agree?

Yes, that's a genuine Converse sneaker pictured above, tricked out and "exclusively ours" at Barney's New York.

I must admit that when I saw it, in an ad on page 3 of last Thursday's New York Times, I didn't know whether to laugh or grimace.

I'm reminded of Kevin Kline's remark, the first time he met (his now–wife) Phoebe Cates, "I didn't know whether to adopt her or ask her for a date."


Barney's is at Madison and Sixty–First Street; 212-826-8900; barneys.com.
