In 1985, only 12 years old I bought my first pair of Converse All Stars. Bright red High Tops. Maybe it was because of Bruce Springsteen, just like the Converse All Stars an all American icon, whose music I listened to all day.
Three years later I attended the Tunnel of Love concert in Rotterdam (The Netherlands) wearing black High Tops. So was he in 1973, the year I was born.
