I've never really jumped on the Converse bandwagon as I found my first pair of yellow canvas trainers uncomfortable. I recently decided to give them another go when I purchased a pair of tan leather Chucks from Zalando (who seem to be the only retailer I can find who stocks half sizes and their leather range).
I've been wearing them to death on weekends since their purchase, and they even served me well while stomping the pavement in NYC - the ultimate comfort test! NHG x
