Ladies...anyone know where I can get animal print canvas sneakers/baseball boots WITHOUT breaking the bank? Saw someone on TV wearing some and I MUST HAVE!! I've trawled the internet to no avail. River Island have some for £50 but they're fur lined and I want them as summer boots.

I loathe shopping so really don't want to trawl Trafford Centre or Dubai Mall (even worse) X

Ooh, my favourite topic! I found my leopard sneakers on the Next clearance site and have worn them to death. Converse do them and ebay is worth a look.

I posted some Converse leopard print ones the other day. They are lovely.

Wow thanks Frankie! How long have you had the Next one's (I haven't looked there) already looked on eBay couldn't find anything over a size 5 (UK) and mostly from Korea/China (small footed chicks there!!!) grin

Will try Converse now (haven't heard of them) thanks

I think I read on a blog that marks and spencer are doing some leopard print skater shoes.

Remus, please would you post the link....I just googled converse and can't seem to find anything other than 'create your own' which takes 2-3 weeks (I'd ideally like to get them within a week).

thanks cloud...will take a look...

Ah Remus thanks so much....I saw these earlier tonight. They are lovely. However I was really wanting the over ankle type....so still searching....it's ridiculous really, I've found some fab retro winged shades on eBay (got them today £3!), some great blingy jewellery for a steal too...yet this seems so difficult (unless I have a spare £300 which I don't!). sad

or search slip on trainer on their web site grin

Nonono you need THESE

They are v gorgeous, sparkly as well as leopardy and look much nicer than in the pics, I had to buy a second pair for when the first ones wear out!

And they are ON SALE, how can you resist!

fiftyandfab Wed 19-Feb-14 22:47:14

thanks cloud, I copied/pasted the link but got an error <aaargh> I'm doomed!

fiftyandfab Wed 19-Feb-14 22:47:59

ooo Montoya....am EXCITED.....running to your link right now!

cloudskitchen Wed 19-Feb-14 22:48:56

search slip on trainer and they come up but they are not high tops so probably no good.

fiftyandfab Wed 19-Feb-14 22:50:21

aaaarghhhh Montoya! They are perfect! However they only have size 3 left and I'm a 7 <sobs into wine...>

fiftyandfab Wed 19-Feb-14 22:52:31

oh god....gutted!

fiftyandfab Wed 19-Feb-14 22:56:17

Oh god...think I've found a pair in Sheffield...watch this space I'm gonna try and order.....

Dillydollydaydream Wed 19-Feb-14 22:57:33

Ooh they are fab. I'm a 4, maybe I could squeeeeze into a 3?! smile

fiftyandfab Wed 19-Feb-14 23:01:01

hahahah Dilly....mine weren't available online with Converse, but I found the last pair of size 7s in Sheffield....have requested they reserve them....will hear tomorrow when the store opens (bloody long drive, about 70 miles!) but will be worth it! Fingers, legs, eyes and toes crossed!!!

fiftyandfab Wed 19-Feb-14 23:02:21

Thanks for sharing Montoya....I'm so excited, won't be able to sleep now!!! How sad am I?

cloudskitchen Wed 19-Feb-14 23:02:22

fiftyandfab Wed 19-Feb-14 23:05:09

Dilly I just rechecked and site's showing 7 not available now instore (hopefully because I've reserved!) but I checked size 4 and they're available!!
