Shoes (had boots when 14/15 - was quite hard to get over this fact when buying shoes)



Not sure about laces - however they came (think it might be crossed - is this wrong shock).

TaxiLady Wed 19-Aug-09 17:22:15

not real converse...primark silversequin ones :D


they have ribbons and they are crossed but i only do up the holes over my feet, not the ones that go around the ankle.

shonaspurtle Wed 19-Aug-09 17:28:37

shoes, grey, straight, 37

Am thinking of buying some black/black shoes for work because they're so bloody comfy and I think my grey ones probably look a bit odd with a suit (am I channelling David Tennent or just looking like I can't be trusted to dress myself?) and I also quite fancy the dark grey colour.

Maybe if they were size 20, were multicoloured and wore by a man in a red nose and diddy car, then yes I can see why you would think this sheeta.
