I've got some fab sneaker type shoes that are really casual apart from they've sequins on them (they aren't glitzy honest!) but they're getting a bit old now.

Anyone seen anything similar out and about?

Something a bit like this but without the Geox logo and erm for adults blush

My dd has silver leather (sounds awful but they are actually quite nice) low rise VANS that she got in TK Maxx.

I know you want adults btw, my dd takes an adult size 5.

These are the exact ones my dd has.

Boden have some and also Converse. Also M&S did some in their children's range (going up to a size 40) but not sure if they still have any.-

The Vans look cool. They would really brighten up a plain pair of jeans/ white t-shirt outfit!
Any other ideas welcome though!

I've got silver converse... you can get them in leather and canvas.

I would go to TK Maxx and have a mooch tbh, they sometimes have some really off the wall one offs. It's my favourite pastime grin

here you go
If you are a size 4, office have sequined silver converse

One pair of silver converses are on their way to me from Office - thanks girls.

Ordered the patent silver by the way and am now wondering whether I should have got the normal silver ones??? Yikes...

Swedes Tue 16-Jun-09 16:48:23

I've just ordered a pair of silver Converse too. I've been hankering after them for a while, ordered Boden cheapies (but not that cheap) but sent them back as they weren't that nice, bought M&S kids ones but took those back. At last an end to the saga.

pigswithfludontfly Tue 16-Jun-09 16:58:01

Did you get patent or normal silver Swedes?

ingles2 Tue 16-Jun-09 17:18:33

I got ordinary silver, but kinda wish I got patent as they are really shiny/plasticizied... mine are scratched and knackered all ready.

Swedes Tue 16-Jun-09 17:34:39

I got the silver patent ones.
