Where can I find an alternative to converse for DD this summer? She really didn't get the wear ou of Converse last year to justify the price ... and her feet grew too much to get a second summer out of them! Looking for something comfy, cute and trendy for her! Any ideas please? TIA.

DD has some red baseball boots from H&M (boys section). Cheap and Velcro fastening!

Most high street stores sell Converse-alike.

Try ebay for Cons ?

Other ones, lots of places have canvas shoes, M&S, Next, Boden etc...

Have you thought of Lee Cooper ? From Sports Direct, they have shoes and boot types, like Cons.

Another one would be Vans but they can be expensive.

If you have a Nike outlet near you, they usually have previous year/s shoes cheaper. smile

Sports direct have got Dunlop hi-tops for between 6.50 and 10 quid a pair depending on the colour. I've Swarovski crystalled the toes of DD's <classy> grin
