    Vejas are pretty nice, and they come with a cute eco-friendly story. Friend of mine has a pair of Volleys she got while she was in France. I haven't seen a Stateside stockist, unfortunately. Oi Polloi carries a few.

    Hey, I have quite a few different shoes but... no trainers!! okay, the trainers i have are garbage (used for running and training).

    However, I'm trying to go for a more casual look now and I need to buy some trainers. What do you guys suggest as the standard required trainers? I'm presuming I need a white pair and a black pair (wouldn't mind hightops on the black pair to tuck in jeans look etc.)... any ideas?

    Brands/reccomendations welcome. No unknown US-only brands or really expensive trainers please. Preferably under £80. The lower the better because I'm looking to buy two pairs.. although I understand once nice pair is better than two rubbish pairs [​IMG].

    P.S. I had some spring courts caanvases and HATED them. Never felt that comfortable. I like trainers with a bit of a heel/rise... I don't know why, makes me feel more agile like I can jump higher (i know this is bullshit lol).

    Do you have a penchant for obnoxious branding?

    Those aren't obnoxious at all...a single logo on a shoe doesn't bother me.

    white ones aren't bad but if you look where the sole meets it looks kind of sloppy, but that's being picky for the price.
