When I was sorting out my wardrobe today, I realised that I have a slightly absurd amount of Converse Hi Tops. It’s unlikely that I am ever really going to grow up !
My boots always last a long time so I must be fairly light on my feet – had some of these pairs for ages. I think my favourite are the silver glittery ones up at the top here, although the Unicorn ones just here below on the left are always greatly admired and the blue Marimekko pair are a really bold pattern.
Charlotte from Habibi Crystals suggested that I send some over one of my more battered pairs for a blinging… quite tempting. Quite fancy some studs and crystals :)
As you probably have seen, Converse have run some excellent collaborations and special editions prints – DC Comics, Gorillaz, Dr Seuss, The Ramones… too many to mention. Do you know of own any rare ones ? Send us a photo if you do :)
I don’t wear a great deal of leather anymore and find it quite hard to find shoes or boots that I really like. Irregular Choice do a good Vegetarian range and Vegan brand Beyond Skin often have some cracking Vintage styles. I also really love Vivienne Westwood / Melissa shoes – apart from being beautiful to look at, the waft of bubble gum that comes from the boxes is delicious ( when is that word going to stop reminding me of Fifty Shades of Grey… Arrgh ! )
It’s time there were more brands out there doing fabulous non leather footwear – can you recommend any ?
