After much scouting around on the web, I discovered Amazon sell Converse hi tops at the best price around. £26 for a new pair of Converse hi tops is a real steal. And if you're in any doubt about the quality or style of the product, you should probably go elsewhere. Converse are what they are - good value, simple, bold and comfortable shows that work well with all sorts of looks.
Also a mention for Amazon and the Home Delivery Network. In the past, I know the latter has had a bad rep, but I ordered my shoes on a Thursday and they arrived on Saturday afternoon. Free delivery in two days? Amazing. I hope you're listening, Royal Fail.
