Are you the woman in Sainsburys with black high top trainer/boot, or do you know where I'd find her shoes??

I wish I'd had the nerve to ask her where they came from... She was wearing a pair of boots that were actually more trainer, or more like a Van slip on but they went up to the ankle. Black leather with a white sole. Anyone know what I'm talking about and where I might find a pair?

Something like this but leather?

Hohumming Wed 11-Jan-17 11:39:34

Ash Virgin trainers?

whifflesqueak Wed 11-Jan-17 11:41:55

these don't have a white sole but are they close?

toastandmarmiterocks Wed 11-Jan-17 11:55:08

They weren't the Ash Virgin trainers but I also really like them. They were very like the ones DanceTheBlues linked to but in leather. Not cheap are they these shoes??

Leather but with a fur top.

Butterfly twist hi top trainers black with White sole/ gold trim

toastandmarmiterocks Wed 11-Jan-17 12:36:03

Great suggestions, not quite what I saw though. They were really plain, sort of like the ones with the fur top but not with a fur top. I don't think

DanceTheBlues Wed 11-Jan-17 12:59:56

I've found these and these as well.

Converse had similar sounding ones a few years back. The closest I can find now are these, which do have a small amount of black fur.

Pestilence13610 Wed 11-Jan-17 13:57:25

plain but shiny

toastandmarmiterocks Wed 11-Jan-17 13:59:12

Ooo Dance I love those Fly ones... yes please. But why £95 😢 Seems a lot for a casual shoe... CallarMorvan I'm not really up for fur despite the forecast for snow...

Cocolepew Wed 11-Jan-17 14:00:46

Next had them .

CallarMorvern Wed 11-Jan-17 14:05:48

Nowt wrong with a bit of (synthetic) fur grin, they'll keep your ankles warm. There's some nice suggestions from 'DanceTheBlues', glad I have left my credit card in the car!

Have you looked in Sainsbury's itself? Possibility?

simmonsbythesea Wed 11-Jan-17 14:51:42

PP might be right about Next. In the clearance section they have black zip chelsea boots for £18, but only in a size 43 left. They also seemingly do them in tan and burgundy (which looked nice actually)

Can't link, sorry! I searched in the sports pumps section.

Ivytheterrible Wed 11-Jan-17 14:58:35

I shop in Sainsbury's a lot and have these if any good. I got mine from house of Fraser as they didn't have my size on kg site.

Clarks Tri Amber?

ShelaghTurner Wed 11-Jan-17 15:55:35

I just picked these up yesterday from Next. I bloody love them!

pk78 Wed 11-Jan-17 20:27:02

Have a look at these..Gap chelsea boot sneakers. Sorry don't know how to do links.
