Last week I finally took the plunge and bought the white Oxford All Star Leather Converse which have been on my must buy list forever. I have previously owned two pairs of converse, and I have always been impressed with the quality and the amount of wear which I have got out of them. The pair which I had been wearing for the last year were the Dainty Canvas , which were super comfortable and had a thin sole. I bought them in the summer and they seemed to be more suitable for the season and they were super easy to wear. For the more colder months, I choose to go with a thicker sole and also the leather texture. I had learnt with my previous pair that white canvas, gets incredibly dirty very easily and I was constantly cleaning them. Therefore I thought that leather would be less dirty and easier to clean - that was my logical anyway. Also, the thicker sole will take a lot longer to dread down which was the reason why I needed to replace my previous pair.
They cost £55 and I bought them from Schuh. They had a 20% off student discount offer which means I got a hefty £11 off, which made me super happy. I went for my normal shoe size which is a 3 and they fit well and are really comfortable. What I love the most is that I know that I will get a really good amount of use out of them. They are incredibly versatile, especially in white. I will wear them with jeans, trousers, skirts, dresses, you name it I will find someway to make my converse work with them.
