    would these be acceptable to a london club tonight? as apart from these the only thing i have are black nike trainers!

    the dress code says
    100% Smart Dress (no hats or sportswear)
    and on other sites it has said
    100% Smart Dress (No hoods, hats, trainers or sports wear)

    They're not even slightly smart, let alone '100% smart dress'.

    Yes.

    It only says no sportswear, trainers, hoods etc. I'm assuming a lot will turn up in a pair of jeans (blue or black) and a shirt/polo.

    Any ideas about shoes?

    If you turned up wearing those, you'd probably get in. I don't know which clubs people on these forums go to but clothing isn't checked all that often at events like this one. Even if the bouncers cared to look at your shoes, they aren't extravagantly sporty or anything, you'd be fine.

    They're just standard plimsolls and clubs around London generally accept them as an alternative to smart leather shoes. Just don't wear Nike Blazers or anything, then you'd be cutting it close.

    I've posted a link to the event, this is the first time I've even been to any club or event but it says 100% smart so I'm not sure, but if I can't wear what I have then I have to wear shoes which don't suit me

    I'm 95% sure that you'd get in wearing those. It's not some VIP club in Mayfair, and if you look at the music they're playing, I'm pretty sure you'll get in.

    To be honest, if you want to be 100% sure, then just go and buy a pair of £25-40 smart black shoes from Burton, nice and simple and will do the job for you for a year or two. As I say though, I'm pretty sure you'd get in. Dark straight cut jeans, with a shirt or a jumper or both would also be fine.

    £20 for an afterparty though, pretty steep, and I don't think the drinks would be cheap either.

    I've been to O2 before, they're fairly lenient. By trainers, they usually mean tennis shoes or tattered Karrimor trainers, that sort of thing. Plimsolls are common clubbing footwear and they'd be stupid to turn all the people wearing them away.

    What they don't want is:

    But I don't want to wear shoes as I don't pull them off with what I wear
