that's ridiculous, no?

and, as i was paying $45 shipping for the privelege, i thought i should get 2 pairs

if anyone now tells me where i can find size 6s in this country i shall cry

Tutter Tue 16-Sep-08 11:40:37

Glad to hear you had to order them from the US, as I have been trying to find them here (online) and am about to resort to a US order...

Have you ordered yet tutter? Shall we share an order/shipping costs?


SoupDragon Tue 16-Sep-08 11:49:36

Oh, I only ask because one of the first sites that came up had some in a 6.

Tutter Tue 16-Sep-08 11:50:38

soupy, thou takest the piss

orangina Tue 16-Sep-08 11:52:32

I tried to find some in the summer with no success. Got some really snotty looks from sales assistants when I asked for them too. Wanted some in grey, even ebay didn't have any.

zappos are good

Tutter Tue 16-Sep-08 12:05:18

asos has grey ones

just not in a 6

CountessDracula Tue 16-Sep-08 12:06:11

I have grey ones
but they are 3 years old
or maybe 2

StellaDallas Tue 16-Sep-08 12:10:58

I get mine from Zappos. Have to get them sent to a US friend to post on though, as they will not mail to Yurp.

southeastastra Tue 16-Sep-08 12:13:52

can't you just get normal ones and take out the laces? grin

CountessDracula Tue 16-Sep-08 12:15:48

here they are in uk in light grey
I have darker grey
They say men's
Aren't they all the same?

oh....why no laces...?

StellaDallas Tue 16-Sep-08 12:19:40

They are elasticated - so they LOOK like they have no laces, but actually are slip ons.
I have apple green ones.

Tutter Tue 16-Sep-08 12:19:52

didn't see those tbh cd

wouldn't have appeared in my search as i used keywords "converse" and "slip" (they're called slips not laceless, offishully)

anyway, i got the colours i wanted (cream, and brown)


Tutter Tue 16-Sep-08 12:20:49

i have just binned olive green ones

i loved them but they were gaping open

previously, i had cream

CountessDracula Tue 16-Sep-08 12:21:58

I have dark grey slightly greenish but defo grey

orangina Tue 16-Sep-08 15:01:12

ooh, the zappo website has them (w laces) in lovely burnt sienna colour...

and dark purple....
