Buying Converse from ebay

I fancy getting a pair of converse all stars and they have cheap ones on ebay, the reviews look good, but I'm still wondering are these cheap Chinese knock offs or will they be OK, I'm quite new to ebay so get a bit nervous (although turns out its a great place to buy plastic glasses in bulk for parties!)

I would imagine they are fake. Office currently have up to 50% off their converse, have you tried there?

I doubt they are real, and even if they are but he fine you add delivery, wait for them to get here from China and pay possible import tax, I'd just go to Office or somewhere and buy them!

I have 5 pairs of Converse and I have bought them all from eBay - however, they have all been individual sellers rather than a shop (iyswim). They have all seemed genuine and I have had no issues with them at all - you just need to be patient/keep searching till you find what you want.

I wouldn't buy those that you have linked to.

They're really not that cheap. I've bought several pairs from Amazon for similar prices with no risk of them being fakes.

Will definitely have a look in Office

Try M&M direct (website). I've so far had 5 pairs from there cheapest £12, most expensive were £24 (leather). The reviews of the Site are quite mixed but I've not had any issues.
