Disadvantages: Take some breaking in....
I've owned numerous pairs of Converse pumps over the past couple of years with my most recent being the Blue/White Allstars Converse. Now; I'm not normally a trainer wearing kind of girl but the Converse pumps suit my style perfectly. Slim, small and versatile to each individuals personal taste.
I definitely wouldn't say that these are a training shoe, more of a style pump kind of shoe In my opinion.
Converse started out as a shoe company in the USA that started in the early 20th century as a manufacturer of rubber soled footwear. Over the past year or so Converse as ventured out to the Converse brand clothing range.
The Converse pumps come in a range of different colours and styles and you can either choose hi-tops or low-tops. The pumps are made of a fabric canvas with a rubber sole. All of my Converse pumps which have been bought over the past few years or so are still going strong and as of yet there's no sign of any wear or tears so these are definitely hard wearing and last the distance.
When I first started wearing my pumps I fully admit that they were not the comfiest of footwear, they took some breaking In and from trial and error I would definitely recommend getting the size up to your normal shoe size as I found that my normal shoe size in these were too tight on my toes and started rubbing at my heels. Once wearing them a good few amount of times I felt that the fabric did soften up and fitted my foot perfectly.
You can buy Converse from a wide variety of High Street Stores; JD Sports, Footlocker, Office and Schuh are to name a few. These range from £40.00 - £60.00 In Adult sizes.
4/5 Star rating.
Summary: Perfect for general day to day activities.
