Converse trainers

I've just brought my first pair of Converse and although I love the look of them off.. when on they look like clowns shoes! I've loosened off the laces but my feet still look really long and narrow... does anyone else have this problem? My feet are size 6.

It is like that at first! I think it's the white bit at the front. You do get used to it but I know what you mean. I also wear a six 6. It's fine, don't worry.

I felt like this too and my feet are tiny

You will get used to it

I'm a 6 and have the same problem, they do wear in a bit a mood to your feet. I have the rose gold tan omes and because they're leather they looked even worse, but after a few wears they soon settled.

Omg, typos! Sorry. You can work it out I'm sure.

The more worn the better they feel, and the better they look.

As PP's said, converse always look strange when they're new. They just need wearing in smile

Thank you all... glad it's not just me. I will wear them round the house today. I suppose it doesn't help looking down at them makes them look worse..

This is why I have never bought them! They seem to look great on others but not on my size 7 feet sad

I always feel like a tit in my converse when they're new so I make a huge effort to run into mud and stuff to make them look a bit more worn in. DH goes barmy. Luckily mine can last me around 5/6 years as they're like slippers once I've worn them in. I wear a size 7.

Every single person I know who owns converse says this! Don't worry, your feet look perfectly normal sized smile
