Nike wants to buy Converse. Better stock up on Chucks now before evil ol' Phil Knight starts lining his pockets with your cash. (Of course, Converse closed its US shoe factories three years ago to move production to China and Indonesia. So you're still getting sweatshop shoes. Alas.)

I hate to ask, but what about Keds? Can I still wear my Keds with a clear conscience? Boy, I remember in junior high, I had this pair of PLUM PLAID Keds. I thought I was the cheez.

Sorry. I think the only sneakers still made in the US are New Balance, and those are not only butt-ugly, they're too wide for my feet.
