I'm 35. Is that too old for hi-tops? Can anyone recommend a not-too-trendy pair? Something just plain but nice. Thanks smile

I got some Nike blazers recently. Pale grey. They're really nice and I don't feel overgrown in them. I'm over 35!

I wear Ash Virgins too and have a pair of gold Nike hi-tops I've had for years that I still wear. I'm 36.

AnOldieButNotSoGoody Sun 23-Sep-12 12:26:40

smile if you like them that's what count.

I wear my ask with skinny jeans or jeggings.

BoerWarKids Sun 23-Sep-12 12:26:43

If you want to wear them, do it!
I'm 32 and don't give a shit if anyone thinks I'm too old!

I haven't got a car and walk everywhere, I need comfortable and supportive, but still stylish, footwear smile
I've got these and they're fab. I'd definitely recommend.

BoerWarKids Sun 23-Sep-12 12:31:58

I wear with skinnies or a dress over leggings.

The other day, I wore them with straight-legged, bootcut-ish black trousers. They didn't look great blush In my defence, I was on holiday and running out of clothes! grin

I'm 46 and I love hi tops - wore them last time around (1990 - 3) and was gutted when they went away.
Well I'm looking for my next pair now. My friend has some brilliant ones with brown leather uppers and a sheepskin (esque) liner. She got them from TK Maxx but I couldn't find them in my local branch.

Any ideas?

iloveeverton Sun 23-Sep-12 13:48:36

these are what I've been wearing loads.

They are really comfy and easy to walk in, have received lots of complements.

iloveeverton Sun 23-Sep-12 13:48:58

Iamjezabel Sun 23-Sep-12 18:57:31

Skinny jeans or jeggings. Have been known to wear the with a skater style skirt.
I like to match them with my green lantern top or my wonder woman should bag.
