If you have a TKMaxx near you go and see what they have to offer. I am mid 40s and get all my footwear there and it is generally of the more casual type. I recently bought a fab pair of trainers in green and yellow, no idea of the make, but they were a bargainous £16 and I don't feel too old for them. They had a massive selection of canvas pumps and loads of Birkenstocks too.
I do think superga are nice and for some reason seem a little more grown up than converse. I do think though you could definitely still wear converse but get you don't want to wear the same as your children.
Superga are nice. More comfy than Converse though have both. Also some retro Adidas in blue suede. I am knocking on 50 and feel I should give the hoody,retro trainer thing a miss now. I look like an aged student. I just can't find a style I like though.
I am having the same dilemma- spent a good couple of hours on the interweb looking for footwear today - found trainers i liked , ordered them, waited for DD to get home to buy her some converse (20% off if I spent over £50) - went to check out and mistakenly pressed the back button
bingo - some other feker had bought the trainers i wanted
