Cool navy trainers that are not converse

I went to a theme park today and the place was awash with converse, literally 2 out of 3 people wearing them possibly more. So I got to wondering what the alternatives are? I think I may be too old for the bloggers favourite new balance but there must be something that I can get in navy? Help please!

I like Nike Blazers hi tops, was thinking of getting some.
I know what you mean, I purposely didn't buy Converse for the same reason.
I used to have some Ash flat hi-tops with buckles which I loved, but they're really expensive now.

I like Springcourt. I've had a few pairs in the last few years and they are comfy and wear really well.

Converse make my feet look too long and flat and I find Superga sizes quite strange!

I have some blue retro nike ones with a red swoosh , which I think I bought from schuh last year, very comfy but don't look too trainer ish.

Superga are fab. Much comfier than converse IMO. Mine are a few years old now and have worn really well.

Just bought a pair of sketchers go walk. They don't look the coolest but loads of colours and so so comfy for long days of walking. They will be lovely and cool in the summer too, unlike trainers. Won't be any good in heavy rain though.

I've got Keds and Superga in Navy - pretty much the same as Converse but a little more comfy on my feet. By the end of the day I tend to feel Converse are tied too tight (even though I've got narrow feet).

I had some Go Walk but the style where you can't really wear socks, and they got super smelly super quick sad. Nice and light though.

I agree, Superga are lovely and much comfier than converse.
