    In the states they're often called "Chucks", short for "Chuck Taylor", from the "Chuck Taylor" insignia on the logo.

    That's why you'd say, "Converse trainers".
    No, I'd cimpley say converses or hi-tops, 'trainers' is an unessecary addition.

    Unnecessary for some it may seem. But that doesn't make it any less correct.
