    Is it 'uncool' to wear pumps or high-tops that aren't brand names like Converse etc? Saw a pair of pumps in New Look the other day that didn't look too bad and I can't really afford to part with £35 for Converse.
    I know its not that much money but I'm reeeaally broke right now

    Well
    Last year i couldn't afford converses so i just got non branded ones cuz i liked them a bunch of girls in m media class who have no life what so ever were quick to judge and make comments which did upset me..
    but i still wore them.
    This year i did buy an actual pair of converses funny enough the same girls were now like ohh there nice...
    idiots..
    To be honest it shouldn't matter my mum bought me some nice high tops and plimsoles the other day Non branded but to be honest i don't care

    Buy them if you like them. Unless you're a total label whore and couldn't bear to put them on your feet. Okay so they mightn't be the best quality and might not last as long as the real thing but if you can't afford actual converse then there are loads of cheapo versions everywhere. There's more colour/print choice with knock off versions too :awesome:
