I love the colour. Love it. I am feeling a bit of school PE pump with them though. Am i being daft? They aren't inexpensive either.
Wondering if there is something similar but much much cheaper out there?
I am undecided whether to send them back, wwyd?

ReeOkAh Fri 10-Nov-17 16:48:38

I like them. It's a keep from me.

BulletFox Fri 10-Nov-17 16:57:25

Keep, if you like them.

They're leather so durable and you say you love the colour. TBH leather trainers aren't much cheaper elsewhere.

Do you feel you will get usage from them? Are they comfortable?

keeponkeepinon Fri 10-Nov-17 17:00:16

Yes they are comfy though poss could go half a size down.
I'm struggling to find anything similar.

Honeycake50 Fri 10-Nov-17 17:00:38

keep! Im going for the Superga version in the similar colour, love this colour at the moment.

BulletFox Fri 10-Nov-17 17:04:55

I'd probably go down a size then. You love the colour, they should last you a few years and they support your feet.

I love wearing trainers now, it's not PE smile

Gorgeous. If I didn't already have purple trainer and converse I'd buy them.

You know what, its the way converse seem to pull upwards a bit at the toes,thats whats making me unsure. They always sort of curl up iyswim

neveradullmoment99 Fri 10-Nov-17 17:38:15

I love them!

cleanandtidy Fri 10-Nov-17 17:40:43

Didn’t you post this yesterday too? grin

keeponkeepinon Fri 10-Nov-17 17:46:43

I suggested them to another poster yesterday. I may have mentioned them last week. I'm a rubbish decision maker, I don't need them but you know...
Am I wearing them too big if the toes look like they are lifting up? grin

cleanandtidy Fri 10-Nov-17 17:48:39

My advice would be to order the next size/half size down and compare!
If you could afford to do that temporarily?

FlorenceLyons Fri 10-Nov-17 17:54:13

I really like them.

LondonHuffyPuffy Fri 10-Nov-17 17:59:02

They are a definite keep from me, but I love all Converse.

I am now cursing you, OP, for this thread because I want several of the other colours of Converse on your link as well as these!

LondonHuffyPuffy Fri 10-Nov-17 18:04:10

Annnnd now they are showing in the ads at the top of the page, including a beautiful pair of pale pink suede boots with a pale grey stripe up the back and which are reduced to £35.

DAMN YOU! grin

Unless you are under 15 you can't get away with wearing those.

keeponkeepinon Fri 10-Nov-17 18:26:36

Under 15? Why so?

cleanandtidy Fri 10-Nov-17 18:32:38

They are suitable for any fucking age! grin

BifsWif Fri 10-Nov-17 18:33:18

Gorgeous! Get them. I love my leather cons, and I am WAY older than 15.

WanderingTrolley1 Fri 10-Nov-17 18:35:05

Can’t decide if I like or detest them.

keeponkeepinon Fri 10-Nov-17 19:01:04

I'm a bit the same wandering!
I love the colour but not convinced they suit me. Like I say they kind of pull up at the toes and curl up. I think converse have a tendency to do that. And With it all the same colour it makes it look odd somehow. Like i look like I'm leaning back?! They might be going back. I do have metallic converse which are already old friends, thought these might be the same but not entirely sure.
Burgundy gazelles or new balance? Are gazelles a bit trainery for a pub/casual shoe? Same for new balance, not sure if they'd look silly with skinnier?

I love them. There is a lady at school with some white leather converse and I covet them from afar. She has perfectly captured that 'I'm still cool but also practical thing.

How are you keepon (waves from BSD thread!) ??

TwoKidsAndCounting Fri 10-Nov-17 19:17:43

Keep, they are lovely!
