What colour converses should I buy?

I really want to buy a a pair of converse women's All Stars-but they are a lot more expensive than I would normally spend on footwear, as I am on a limited budget and usually get my shoes in charity shops!

But I love them, and know that I will get lots of use and my money's worth out of them.

I plan to wear them with jeans/trousers as well as with dresses/skirts so the question is what colour should I get-I have narrowed down the choice to white, cream , or navy ( I can only afford one pair unfortunately) bearing in mind I will probably want to wear them well into the Autumn/winter time too.

Can you help me decide?

I was going to say cream but if you want to wear them autumn/winter then navy is probably a better choice.

Black is the only colour converse to wear.

I would buy these grey ones, if I had the money. Which I don't. Dammit!

Am planning to buy grey ones in about 3 weeks when I have some cash ! smile

These cream ones? Gorgeous but not sure how they'll stand up to the winter dirt.

I also like the purple ones. I really wanted to buy these but ended up getting bright royal blue as they were in the sale and were similar enough.

Cream/white more summery.
Navy more all year round.

they wash in the washing machine well though.

I tend to wear red in winter and white in summer. Both are ages old.

I've had navy ones for a year now and don't know how I managed without them, they go with everything!
They also wash ok, though I've only done it the once.

I have a khaki pair that go with most things, well most of my clothes! Also have a beige pair.
They are a good buy as they last for ages.

I have black, but wear them mostly with jeans.

If you're set on choosing from those three colours, then I would say navy is your best bet.

I also have them in khaki and they go with loads of things! I was going to buy navy, but they seemed a little dark for the summer.

Have you checked Amazon? They always have some colours/sizes pretty cheap.

I have black that I wear to work with black wide legged trousers on cold days.

I have grey high tops that I got in TKmaxx a few months ago for £27. I thought that was a good deal so it is worth looking about. Really like them - they go with everything!

I have silver ones ! They are more versatile than you might think and I've worn them a lot and they still look fresh.

They look really good with both white and dark blue denim. I love them and get loads of compliments when I'm wearing them.

Look at getthelabel, they have them for £25.

nomorecake Thu 07-Jul-11 23:29:24

i got some light grey ones in TK Maxx for £19.
so might be worth trying there too. but it can be quite hit and miss there.

i would like navy for the winter but need to save up. and probably get them online.
