Trends are very important in the eyes of high schoolers, you can either wear Nikes, or Adidas, but another big one I’ve noticed in this school is our shoes. Converse vs. Vans. So I had decided to do an experiment on Thursday November 15th. Me and another classmate, Scotty Giannini, had walked down the halls at Wethersfield High School taking down people's statements on whether they had prefer converse over vans (visa versa) and why.
I had asked a group of girls why they choose a brand over the other, and majority of that group had picked Vans, due to the fact that it’s now the new trend going around at school, they are cute, and the fact that slip on vans are much easier to put on. Another student, Lauren McAlister, Senior, said, “I had worn them in middle school, and that phase had past, it’s gross to me now.” Another senior student, Mackenzie Scutari, said “I like Vans more, they are cuter, and they happen to be cheaper so if you mess them up, it’s okay, you can buy new ones.” Now I had asked more students, but in the end, I had gotten the same answer, Vans. If you have a preference, tell us below, and why.
