Which Converse for Spring?

(25 Posts)
RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Mon 17-Feb-14 22:27:37

Got my first pair of Converse since about aged 13 last year (am now around 30 years older!) and love them. I want a new pair for Spring (when it finally stops raining, if ever).

Torn between: leopard

red Love these but are they too Playschool Presenter?

Gold Too MC Hammer?

Black leather

Any opinions?

I was expecting to vote leopard but after looking at them I think gold. Not MC Hammer at all. Much classier than that!

Red is ok but not as versatile as the gold I think. I prefer red high tops for some reason.

Black a bit boring.

I don't like the hi-tops on me. I think I like the leather ones better than the fabric ones, overall. Black a bit Emo?

I have had a few pairs of silver ones - not leather but treated with something so they are a more waterproof than the plain canvas ones, which was a real bonus. Looks like the gold ones in your link are the same, so I'd go for them or the black leather ones simply for practicality.

I currently have tan leather, and absolutely love them. Am looking at more leather ones now, but think I've talked myself out of gold.

I prefer the leopard smile Have you looked at any other colours?

libertychick Mon 17-Feb-14 22:46:45

I am converted to leather converse after getting grey ones last year. Black could be a bit Emo - they just don't appeal to me for some reason.

Get the gold grin or what about the Burgundy ones?

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Mon 17-Feb-14 22:47:24

Just seen Cranberry, which are lovely.

onedev Mon 17-Feb-14 22:51:26

I love them all!

libertychick Mon 17-Feb-14 22:53:54

Oh yes, I dithered between linking Cranberry or Burgundy. The cranberry are lovely and would be very versatile.

Will report back! smile

This year (I buy a new pair every year and wear them to death) I'm going for yellow converse.

MrsRogerSterling Mon 17-Feb-14 23:00:01

I have the leopard one's, have worn loads. Also have burgundy hi-tops which I love. Not keen on leather converse though not sure why.

northerngoldilocks Mon 17-Feb-14 23:03:47

I've had the gold ones in the past. I loved them and they looked great with jeans

Love the leopard smile

DaftSkunk Tue 18-Feb-14 06:45:08

I like the red.

QueenCadbury Tue 18-Feb-14 07:35:41

I had the gold a couple of years ago and if they're the same they're not quite as in your face gold as the picture looks. I now have silver and love them. I've also got black leather high tops but I don't like them anymore as they look too 'heavy'.

Lizzylou Tue 18-Feb-14 07:49:27

I have red, but I love the leopard!

netty36 Tue 18-Feb-14 08:57:10

I love the leopard so much just ordered some from ebay. They will look fab with denim of all colours.

burnishedsilver Tue 18-Feb-14 09:33:10

Love the cranberry leather.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Tue 18-Feb-14 09:56:44

Converse are clearly something people have strong opinions on. grin

I'm going to try the leopard on but think I want leather, so might go for cranberry.

schmalex Tue 18-Feb-14 12:22:33

Love the leopard and gold.

In fact, I think I might treat myself to a gold pair. Thanks, OP.

I used to have silver and wore them to death. But since I've had colours done I now know I should have gold!

5madthings Tue 18-Feb-14 12:27:05

ooh i have a pair of converse to return and swop... dp bought me them for valentines. fab!! but he bought white... i walk across a field on the school tun...

tempted by silver or gold or the batman or thundercats ones...

Vickiyumyum Tue 18-Feb-14 12:38:08

leopard, or navy plain ones.

cloudskitchen Tue 18-Feb-14 13:00:00
