Conclusion
After gathering all my data from my research, girls our age prefer converse over vans. Some of the girls that I interviewed said they preferred converse because they are "trendy" right now and more comfortable than vans. Overall I believe that converse are more popular than vans at the moment because they are seen as more "trendy" to women right now.
Converse VS. Vans
Prior to attending The University of Kansas, I knew a lot of girls wear converse and vans. Yet, when I started school in the fall I felt like I started to see an absurd amount of college women wearing converse. Eventually, I even went out and bought a pair of converse. Now I think this is because it's a trend on our campus to own and wear converse because everyone else is.
I wanted to see if girls were more inclined to wear converse or vans and their reasoning of why they chose one or the other.
