Alternatives to converse - recommendations?

So I tried on a pair of converse the other day for the first time (I know).

The regular ones were too narrow but the hi tops were fine and I loved them!

However I just cannot bring myself to spend £50 on a pair of shoes. Are there any decent alternatives out there? Has anyone tried the Lee Cooper hi tops from Sports Direct?

I bought some Converse lookalikes from Barratts yesterday, cost £8.00. The soles are very thick and I am light on my feet as I never seem to wear through the soles of shoes, so they should last.

My leather converse were £18.00 and my navy were £16.00. Both from La Redoute. I just wait for a good discount code.

They are worth what they cost.

They aren't trainers, but I have these from Clarks. They are ridiculously comfy and despite the fact that they look a little like old lady shoes, they do actually look really nice with just about anything. I've worn them out in the rain a few times and they have been fine.
