I am a huge fan of Converse Chuck Taylor shoes. A couple of summers ago I saw a company online that sold Chuck Taylors with a Hawaiian print that they called Blue Hawaii. Of course, I didn't get a pair then, and I can't find any for sale now. And I don't remember what the original company was that was selling them.

Does anybody remember seeing these shoes, and does anybody know (if wishes could come true...) where I might get a pair?

I've been wearing Cons for most of my life, and I wear my black Chucks to school every day. Many of my students have begun wearing them too, and one of them has a black pair with blue flames on 'em - very cool! I've never heard about any with Hawaiian prints but I've gotta have a pair!

Did they look like this?

I got a pair with a typical tapa cloth design on 'em.

I'll try to post a picture sometime after I discover the largest prime number...

Yes! Tikiwahine's post is exactly right! And I'd never seen the ones Doctor Z posted, but I love those too!

I noticed that the link is in German or something. Do you think they are sold anywhere state-side?, or at least an English speaking web sight?

Do you really have a pair of these or are you just BS-ing? Now those have got to be cool! Were they custom made?

For what it's worth, Vans makes an 'aloha' series of slip-ons with hibiscus patterns, and even a lace-up with woven faux lauhala and suede (these are great - Z-Girl and Madame Bong have 'em)

A buddy of mine had a pair of High-top Allstars that had a glow in the dark leopard print. You could see him coming from half a block away.

OK, I found the blue ones I posted.

I just visited a local shop called Baggins(
http://www.chucktaylorallstars.com/converse-main.html ) which is a 2 minute walk from where I work. They only have one VERY SMALL pair in the high top, but they have several of them in low top. You can see them on the web site.(exactly the same design as the picture I posted above) They ship to wherever you like, and have a toll free number. These were out a couple of years ago, so this is all they'll get. They didn't have any other hawaiian style prints. If I can help in any way, let me know!

I still have my Glow Zebra Stripes. Too bad they're 2.5 sizes to small now. But, I did recently sell my Batman Chucks on ebay for $150.

I'm bringing a dead thread back to life..I wondered if anyone had posted about these shoes before, and they had
I got these shoes about 5 years ago for my birthday, I LOVE them!
