I've been thinking about buying some converse trainers but can't decide which colour to buy.
Can anyone recommend places to buy them ?

Amazon is a good place to start, they sometimes have offers on certain styles. Or on the High Street, try Office or Schuh.

Just got a pair in Schuh recently... Cloggs were cheaper but didn't have the colour I was after - they are based in Brum but online too.

Mmmmm I have nice jadey green ones faded over time and have just got navy ones which I hope will fade in same way.

I'm not mad about the patternedy ones.

I love converse and have 3 pairs: navy (bought from Schuh which has free delivery and very good service), red (bought from Cloggs via Amazon) and beluga (from Amazon). I like all three colours, but I guess it depends on what colours you usually wear. Navy is a good one as it goes with a lot.

I love them - have bright pink (Schuh)and cream (Amazon)!

I've got a lovely pair, the high ones. Minea are maroon. Got them online.

I've got silver patent and they are fab. Love them.

MissAnnesley Fri 02-Oct-09 18:19:51

Oh I do want those shiny silver ones envy.

I do, but I'm just about to send my first pair (lovely grey sweatshirt ones) back to rubbersole, because they are too large. Really want to replace them but don't think I can get them in my size any more.

I luuuurvve my grey ones. But I bought them in the US and have never seen them the same in UK.

You can find you wear them a bit too much, though. I started to feel a bit High School by the end of summer, despite pushing 40

thegrammerpolicesic Fri 02-Oct-09 18:26:47

Moodlum - they were hideously uncomfortable for about the first ten wears but worth it in the end. They also came up massive size wise so be careful to try them (I went mail order and ended up with a size smaller after returning them)

thegrammerpolicesic Fri 02-Oct-09 18:27:15

Oops sorry that was for Miss not Moodlum

FabBakerGirlIsSURVIVED Fri 02-Oct-09 18:28:22

I only have one pair but intend to buy more. I have the black ones with silver sequins.

I love mine too.
I have the high basebal style.
In pink check.
Have had Navy, White, Red, Red check...

My Little brother has the style that is like a boot in a boot and I keep trying to steal them. grin
