I'm fed up with my converse being so uncomfortable and looking for some recommendations for sobering similar please? Are Toms any good, vans?

Vans are amazing - got a pair few weeks ago & am still agog at how comfy they are!

Dunlop from sports direct - so comfy!

I have Converse, Superga and Vans. Both the Superga and Vans are way more comfortable than the converse are. Possibly Vans would be slightly ahead but both very comfortable

Second the Dunlop suggestion! So comfy!

Vans seem to be comfy then I think I'll try some on - laces or Velcro sides?

I've bought Superga for the first time this year & love them. Really comfy.

Rocket Dogs.

And they have regular 50% off sales too. Mine a v comfy.

I do love my Converse too though but that's a habit of 25 years I'll never shake.

Slightly different style (less plimsoll more trainer) but how about New Balance?

Vans ultra lite are the dogs.
I wear them to and from work and often "forget" to change out of them into work appropriate shoes.
