My trusty Converses have finally been binned.
I had the really flat ones and would like something similar but a bit more comfortable.

Any ideas? smile

What about some cute Bensimon

Feminine but trainery. Vintagy but not silly.

PF Flyers, try Schuh. Very comfy and a little smarter than Converse.

I like some of those Tatty but for some reason those pictures make me laugh!
Away to google PF Flyers.
Thanks Ladies.

Second Superga

Really like the PF Flyers, the Superga ones are a bit too chunky I think. Although I probably found the Converse uncomfy because of the thin sole.

More Converse! grin I adore mine and will probably have to be surgically removed from them when I die.
I use highly attractive surgical-pink insole thingys because I have a dodgy knee. I find that they help with Converse and other dead-flat shoes.

I second the vote for more converse. You can never have too many. Although I did wonder if it was possible when I pulled 8 different ones out of my wardrobe before i found a pair.

They all look like wannabe Converse to me.
Did you buy those thin soled ones? Get the proper ones.
