I want some casual converse type shoes...is converse the best?
I need some converse low-top type shoes but wondered if there was anything better than converse. I am 35, prefer leather, not too bright white if you know what I mean. I seem to remember someone linking to some gorgeous ones ages ago but can't find them. Not a boden with silver toe type of girl. Will wear them with jeans. Have seen ugg ones and wondered if they would be wonderfully comfy but they are £££, anyone got them? TIA
I've got a pair of white converse low-rise and I hate them. Although I still wear them. I'm conflicted. Basically, they rip my heels to shreds and the soles feel too hard and flat, not comfy at all. But I wear them because they look good with certain things. Pain and beauty go hand in hand.
I love Spring Courts, have worn them ever since I lived in France many moons ago - I find them really springy and comfy. They are sold on the Toast website but you can find them much cheaper here: along with Superga and Converse They are a little less ubiquitous than converse and I think a nicer shape.
I do need them to be comfy. Am usually a heel girl but am having knee twinges so need to wear flats for a while. I like the look of both options mentioned. I know what you mean about converse. Everyone wears them so I would prefer something a little different. I like the idea of leather with rain like this!
shopalot, they're comfortable, and last longer. And being leather, they're water resistant and easier to keep clean. I think the sizes are pretty much spot on. I'm a 5 normally, and a 5 in PF Flyers too.
