 Converse Men’s Red All Star Mend It Patch

Price: 74.99

A really cool looking sneaker AND its for a good cause too! This sneaker is part of the Red Collection and some money goes to the fight against AIDS. Here is the description of the sneaker from Eastbay:

Whether you do it because they’re cool or because they’re RED™, it’s a good choice all around. The CONVERSE (PRODUCT) RED™ All Star is a casual shoe with a worthy cause — buy a pair today and money goes to The Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. It’s a great reason to invest in a great shoe. The CONVERSE (PRODUCT) RED™ All Star features a canvas upper and a rubber outsole. 5% of the net wholesale price of this shoe will be paid to The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Geneva, Switzerland). No part of the purchase price is deductible under US law.

I think Converse makes some really cool sneakers (and comfortable) and the fact that they make these very important sneakers actually look good while they are doing good is a great thing. The hi-top version might not be as bold, but its still cool. Same price too.

I’m mad that there are not any sizes bigger than 11 but they have sizes as small as 3… what’s up with that?

  1. How much of the money I spend on these shoes goes to fight AIDS?
