I just can't wear the same shoes as my 13yo son. He would be shamed. grin

I did see some lovely sparkly silver ones the other day...

Wilts Sun 16-Aug-09 22:36:07

I love my all stars! I only have black ones but would love a pair of red as well.

Me, Dh and DS1 all have them grin

cookielove Sun 16-Aug-09 22:36:57

KnickKnack Sun 16-Aug-09 22:38:45

! grin

shiny her is the link

They are sooo comfy and look nice with jeans. I did wonder if I was too old to wear them but i love them. They are £34.99.

here are mine{query&sconstraints=IncludeSelector%3DDetails%2CSellerInfo%26ItemType%3DAllFixedPriceItemTypes%26 ItemSort%3DBestMatch&xm&siteid=3}

they are double layered not just an extra tongue, but double laces and shoed if that makes sense

Wilts Sun 16-Aug-09 22:43:49

Knickknack- I might ask for a pair of red ones for Christmas grin

KnickKnack Sun 16-Aug-09 22:46:36

cookie-omg heaven! they are perfect. what a colour

KnickKnack Sun 16-Aug-09 22:49:41

any idea where to buy them in real life, not online?

cookielove Sun 16-Aug-09 22:50:40

tee hee i really love them, problem is i can't find them in the flat, i think dp has hidden them somewhere!!!! thinking about it now will go for a hunt!

MinnieMummy Sun 16-Aug-09 22:51:25

I have a pair that are chocolate with mint/dark green leafy design on the heels. I looove them, wear them all the time. I am 37 this year!

KnickKnack Sun 16-Aug-09 22:53:56

anyone on here not in their late 30's?? grin

<<wonders if we are all stuck in the early 90's>>

I wear converse everyday. I have done for the last 6 years. I absolutely love them except when I stand in a puddle. You can buy them on the high street from Office and Shuh.

cookielove Sun 16-Aug-09 22:55:41

if you like converse you'll prob like babycham i live in those to, but they are more patterny

Wilts Sun 16-Aug-09 22:57:50

Cookielove- My little sis has a lovely babycham bag.
She would be mortified if I purchased anything from the babycham range, as she thinks it's bad enough that we both have converse ( she is 14) grin

cookielove Sun 16-Aug-09 22:59:05

this are all glittery and cute i have similar but diff star pattern

KnickKnack Sun 16-Aug-09 22:59:15 you know anywhere to get the fab double ones Cookie linked to?

babycham? not the alcohol I presume???

cookielove Sun 16-Aug-09 22:59:43

i'm 27

cookielove Sun 16-Aug-09 23:01:40

i got the ones i linked to in a shop not online, but to be honest not seen them any where sense and i got them for my birthday in april, so its been a while, however they do, do double tongue ones and similar in shops like schuh, sole trader, office e.t.c

MuffinToptheMule Sun 16-Aug-09 23:02:17

I'm not in my late 30s. I'm in my early 20s.

I don't know where to get the double ones. I only saw a pair the other day for the first time. I imagine that Office would have them as they usually stock so many different styles.

I have converse, Dp has Converse and so does MIL.

Wilts Sun 16-Aug-09 23:03:45

I am only 30, but intend to keep on wearing my converse for a long time yet.

cookielove Sun 16-Aug-09 23:06:31

found my converse so happy now grin
