In Shepherd many people wear many different brands of shoes. Converse, however, are one of the
most popular. Converse, also known as chucks, are very expensive in some stores, but that’s why there
are vans (a cheaper converse like shoe). Everyone likes them. Even the teachers wear them. There are
many reasons as to why everyone likes to wear converse. The first reason is that they are stylish. The
come in different colors and style. They even come
in polka dots! The second reason is that they are
comfortable and they come in different shoe types.
Converse creates boots, high tops, tennis shoes, flip flops and even flats! They even make cupcakes! Wow!
The third reason is that they hold together well. Most stylish shoes fall apart really fast, but converse are really stylish and hold together well. Converse is really hard to destroy in just a few months. The
question is “How do you know if it’s converse?” Well you know it’s converse because number one it’s going to have a tag and number two the rubbery part of the toe is what truly makes it awesome. The price can get very expensive but they usually cost $30-$40.
Converse are a trending fashion and its sweeping middle school.

The middle school can’t go on the playground during recess. We cannot go on our play
Equipment for three reasons. One reason is because people were misusing the equipment. We
were running up the slides, yelling, and fighting with each other. So the teachers decided we
needed to be closer to the black top (parking lot). The second reason is we are getting too big for
the playground. If we stay on the play equipment and stomp on it will most likely break under
our weight. The third and final reason is some older kids were mean to little kids. Most of the
middle school thinks that they are the boss of the playground. They then started to be mean to
smaller kids so they get their way. So that’s when the teachers found out that the older kids were
being mean to smaller kids so they wanted to watch us closer. We are now only allowed on the
black top, the swings, and the soccer field. However this rule was first enforced last year and has
continued over to this year. At first most middle school did not like the new rule but after last
year and this year we have gotten used to it.
