Converse as well, obvs
and they had pink on them as well
I have even bought another pair before the first ones wore out, just in case they discontinued them.
I went back to a shop to get another pair, to find they had been discontinued.
May have made multiple purchases of black Converse over the years.
Now I just re-buy DMs, they last a year ( I walk a lot ).
Although they were different colours each time
was very excited when i realised i could have the same toothbrush again!
Bought 3 pairs of these K-Swiss trainers in a row when I was younger:
I've also had about 6 or 7 pairs of these Converse:
I like all white trainers. Some of my best friends have black trainers, though.
I hate shoe shopping so its nice to just walk in a shop tell someone what you want and just buy them without having to try them on
but I buy them online now. Don't even need to speak to anyone, it's brilliant!
I tried to do it with some M&S Chelsea boots but the second pair wasn't the same and they were rubbish :(
I've also bought multiple pairs of the same trainers if I liked them and they were on sale.
Change is good.
But the second pair had a slightly different shaped toe and were/are tiny. they were expensive and I've never worn them.
Because that's where all my shoes wear out first. So I probably couldn't sell them.
And acan imagine that when they die I will get another pair - so much better than DMs.
On my fourth pair at the mo, but you can't get them anymore. Sad times.
they were desperate times
I'm trying to avoid simply replacing crappy Primark ones though, no matter how pretty. It's tempting, but it's a false economy and I feel terrible about resource consumption etc etc when I could be splashing out on the same thing from New Look that'll last, ooh, two months longer.
(On a side note, anyone know any good quality ballet pump stockists?)
Like, all the time. I always wear the same shoes.
... went through loads of these in the early/mid-nineties. Had some in black for school too - this was my summer-look, winter-look being 8-hole Doc Martins. Had a few pairs of them too.
