Basically I'm 44 petite v casual dresser. I have wide feet and bunions so do struggles to find comfy shoes. I wear skinny jeans a lot and would love some fashion trainers to go with them but I don't know where to start!

Adidas Superstar or Stan Smith smile

I've got Adidas Honey lows, Vans skater high tops, Adidas Hamburgs and an old pair of Adidas Gazelle. These are all super comfy, I have bony feet. Found Converse very uncomfortable and Nike just too chunky

I have small feet so I generally get the kids size which are cheaper grin

Can't beat a pair of New Balance!
But also agree with Superga smile

waits for someone to recommend Sketchers

Another vote for Adidas Superstars and Superga!

KARMAisaBtch Sat 01-Oct-16 21:57:40

Got a pair of these, kinda like it with skinny jeans. smile

Sketchers = heat grin

Perhaps start off with a simple pair of Superga's/converse op? They're a good day to day shoe. Check out Office/Aso's for a wide selection.

Usually a Converse wearer but having bought a pair of Superga over the summer they are so much more comfortable!

PotatoBread Sat 01-Oct-16 22:41:59

Not everyone's cup of tea but I have these Woden ones for when I fancy a change from my Stan Smiths. They are def a lot more comfortable than adidas, converse and superga's


Bibs2014 Sat 01-Oct-16 22:51:09

Adidas Superstars!

Nearlyadoctor Sun 02-Oct-16 07:35:44

I never had a pair until this summer and bought the Superga metallics in Silver - absolutely love them.
If you buy from White company AM030 gives 25% off!

Superga are so comfy. Converse I find really hard on my feet.

raspberrysuicide Sun 02-Oct-16 14:32:22

I find converse to be quite narrow and really squash my feet and give me bruised toenails!
I've never heard of superga before but the look lovely x

Honesttodog Sun 02-Oct-16 16:03:55

Love the look of the Woden, am off to investigate further!

Buttwing Sun 02-Oct-16 16:07:48

Stan smiths I live in mine. I wouldn't go for converse (even though I have loads of pairs) they just seem very boring now. Every mum in the world seems to have them!

ShutTheFuckUpBarbara Sun 02-Oct-16 16:07:53

On the Adidas website you can design your own Stan Smiths, Superstars, Gazelles, etc. They are pricier than the standard version though.

The concept is very addictive too; I have waisted a lot of time at work creating all sorts of cool trainersblush

Other Stories usually stock the cooler trainers is worth a look, they had some great ones when I was in there the other week.
