Perfect plimsolls?

(25 Posts)

Can anyone help me to find something similar to these but in a darker grey?
I know there are loads of this type of thing, but I like the rounded toe, and all the other plimsolls I've seen seem to be a more pointed toe.
I'd also consider a ballet flat type thing with a rounded toe, in dark grey.

Converse?

I have a charcoal pair that are darker- but they do come up a bit narrow (I'm a skinny feet type though)

Yeah I like the converse ones, and they would remind me of my youth grin but not sure I like the narrowness of them. I'm thinking of getting the rocketdog ones and dyeing them!

I love these Bensimon ones, love love love them. Nostalgia or summat like that. Bring me back to childhood. Aren't they lovely? But they're not cheaper than your eBay onessad.

I think Next might have done something v similar last year or 2 summers ago for about a tenner. So keep an eye.

I like your Rocketdog ones a lot.

Have a look here too. Possibly not as nice as your Rocketdog but you might get the right colour?

lurking I've looked at the bensimon ones and quite like them but find the rubber toe a big. Perhaps I'm looking for attainable perfection!

I have these Superga in Grey Sage www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001EP5S0C/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE, there's also a darker grey, but they may not be as round toed as you want.

I love these. Definitely best for narrow feet though.

noddyholder Sun 08-Feb-15 19:48:54

LOVE those I need the green and am on a shopping ban!

iwantgin Sun 08-Feb-15 20:11:53

I love supergas.

Always manage to get them in the sale too.

V comfortable and go in the washing machine.

lurkingaround Sun 08-Feb-15 21:09:51

Great you got the link to work. Will link again just in case. Here's the grey page but it's worth having a look around the site.

2nd supergas

Ihateparties Sun 08-Feb-15 21:14:57

Camper??

perfectlybroken Sun 08-Feb-15 22:35:41

Hmm, like the Victoria ones as well, not keen on the grey but the purple are nice. Wow now I have choice!

perfectlybroken Sun 08-Feb-15 22:39:39

grin supergas and campers don't have a toe bit, I Ike a toe bit, just not too big a toe bit

perfectlybroken Mon 09-Feb-15 09:20:47

What do you folks think about these. Not plimsolls but similarly summary and I quite like the shape.

perfectlybroken Mon 09-Feb-15 09:21:19

summary?? confused summery!

lurkingaround Mon 09-Feb-15 09:40:48

Oohhh, no, they wouldn't be my choice. Sorry, not keen on those at all.

perfectlybroken Sat 14-Feb-15 16:06:34

if anyone is still around and interested in my fascinating hmm plimsoll hunt, I think I've decided on these or these which do you like best?
I'm erring towards the ballet style as I like to be able to slip shoes on and off without faffing, always good with a child in each arm...

lurkingaround Sat 14-Feb-15 16:55:14

I much prefer the regular plimsolls (not the ballet ones) do I do get the relief of a slip-on with a child in each arm....

perfectlybroken Sun 15-Feb-15 12:29:30

went for the regular ones (and got them in the sale), I'll do the laces loosely! Thanks lurking for your contribution to my plimsoll decision!
