Except for three years in Europe back in the 1950's and a year in Viet Nam in the sixties, I have worn Converse All Stars at least three seasons of the year continuously over a 66 year span, most of my life. As a child, I wore the high-tops, but from high school on I have worn low-cuts.
They are reasonably lightweight, supremely comfortable, breathe well, dry out quickly, and have adequate shock resistance and good traction, but you can still feel the road beneath your soles, which helps keep bones dense and strong. A pair will last six or eight years of both rugged use and casual wear. And they're cheap!
For years I jogged in them when most everyone was using running shoes, played tennis on paved courts, wore them aboard my sloop and for everyday casual wear. I still use them for temperate weather casual wear. For exercise I wear them while fast-hiking mountain logging tracks. I'll still be wearing All Stars when they put me on a gantry to take me away.
