Why is everyone wearing Converse All-Stars at the end of "2012?"

It starts out subtly... a flash of that tell-tale white rubber among a flurry of feet:

Later we have a close up of Tenzin and Nima's feet. Here I begin to scratch my head...neither were wearing chucks when they boarded...so they must have gotten them while on the ark...

Wait a minute...


HOLY SHIT

So let me get this straight...the official footwear of this unprecedented international effort to save humanity, is fucking Converse?? Not only that, but they bought about 500,000 of them in all different sizes for the survivors of the planet. All-Stars are the only shoes available for the remnants of human civilization. Yes, at the end of the world, almost nobody will have decent arch support...
