I have 3 pairs of Converse high top boots and I love them (although they are not very comfy to walk long distances in).
I'm looking to get a pair of lo tops lookey likies to wear with shorts in the Summer and wondered if anybody can recommend any that are comfotable and well made.

I've just bought a pair of vans. They are so comfy! And apparently they're on trend at the moment.

mine are neon pink insidegrin

Why not just get Converse lo tops confused

EeyoreIsh- will look into Vans thanks .

Cocolepew-because they are not very comfy- they make be feel like I am walking with flippers on as they are so flat and unpaded.

Awks- great thanks i'll look in to them .

Ahhh yes. You should get a pair of insoles. Scholl or Birkinstock 3/4 ones work well in Cons. I never wear the canvas ones without insoles.

PF Flyers are supposed to be comfy, never tried them though.

Vote for PF Flyers here- I wore them all through my pregnancy. Was blissful on my feet. (Everywhere else fell to pieces mind youwink)
