My lovely all white Zara sneakers are starting to wear out and I think I better start planning my next sneaker purchase. Being the materialist I am, Lanvin and Ann Demeulemeester's High top sneakers have been at the top of my list. Unfortunately I was heart broken when I found that they they are in the 500 euro price range. That really puts them in a league of their own and there is no way that I'll ever pay that much money for a pair of sneakers.
Thankfully I have found something which is ten times cheaper and that is Converse Chuck Tailor Leather high-tops. I'm totally in love with them. Although converse sneakers are very main stream, very few people walk around in the leather ones. What I great about them is that they are completely white, clean and minimalistic shoes is the only way for me to go. Further more the they are so discrete that from a distance very few will be able to tell that they are Converse. Lastly the leather material is a lot easier to keep clean than cotton. You simply wipe the dirt off rather than having to toss the shoes inside a washing machine.
