I've never owned a pair of Converse
. I saw these on Zappos and fell in love. So I bought them and got them in yesterday's mail. The sparkle is seriously cute in person. Absolutely love it! There is really no arch support but that doesn't bother me so much. I wear a lot of flats that basically have no support what so ever. If you're used to that, then you'll be fine. I've had a few pair of Vans
and those are always tough to break in. These didn't feel that way - the material was pretty soft and on me, it didn't rub me the wrong way on any part of my foot. But the sizing is weird. I'm always a size 8 but this felt much bigger. I'm going to return them and try a size 7 and 7.5 to see which one is better. Although, even if those fit, I'm not 100% sure how I feel about the shoe. While the sparkle is awesome, honestly, when I had the shoes
on last night, they made my feet look totally long. I told my husband I felt that I looked like Side Show Bob. But maybe that's just because the shoe was big on my foot. I don't know. We'll see what happens with the smaller sizes and then I'll re-review. I really want to love these shoes
all the way around though. Love Zappos!
