Converse Sued by Man Who Says Classic Chucks Didn't Protect His Feet

EXCLUSIVE

Converse's classic shoes aren't made for walkin' as much as they're made for hurtin' your feet ... according to a new lawsuit.

A California man says he bought a pair of Chuck Taylors as work shoes -- he walks around to advertise his website -- but the sneakers couldn't protect his dogs from getting seriously corny.

In the docs, he says he got a nasty corn on his left foot that was so bad and so deep ... it "interferes with the nervous system of my toes." Seriously.

He wants $10k to cover his long-term foot care, and to pay for a footwear upgrade. We'd suggest a comfy pair of orthotics, perhaps?

We reached out to Converse, but no word back.
