Converse are classic. They are my second favorite shoes, they're comfy, people with narrow feet can fit into them, they come in a variety of colors. I have a huge rainbow of them in my closet. Not only, as you put it "emo" people wear them. If you want to start stereotyping, "preps", "nerds", and a LOT of other people wear Converse too. Even celebrities. No matter what you seem to wear with them, they match or at least look good with it.
