Since I ordered my rusty red Vagabond loafers by Zalando, they keep sending me all of their promotions. And I have t say they have a pretty genius system as it’s capable of recognise what I was searching for earlier and offering similar items on sale. Yeah, I know this is not a new thing and why would they change it if it’s working quite good.
Actually I was thinking about buying white canvas sneakers for a while but something never was right as I either saw sales at wintertime or I didn’t want to spend that amount of money what they asked for them.
But now everything was right. Summer is coming (for real), I’ve decluttered my shoes wardrobe too, they were on sale and I just love them. Everything on them. I love Converse sneakers, I have my black ones for a while now this will be the case in the future too. I adore this not too bright, off-white color and I was curious of the redesign as well. Also because Zalando have free delivery and return options I could nothing to lose. Again, genius, right?
What can I say? I love them from the very first moment. And actually they’re more comfortable than the old ones. So these ones are definitely keepers.
Converse didn’t risk that much though, they kept everything from the well known design but changed the small details. Being a big Converse one myself I don’t think this redesign would hurt for the brand. I still love the retro ones as they’re the perfect basic items, however I really welcome the changes they made.
Most importantly the new ones have a soft foamy insole which makes walking int them more pleasantly as they are soft and flexible. Then they changed the tongue, as it become thicker and non slippery with an elastic band to keep it in place. Also it seems the canvas and soles are made from more durable materials but I haven’t got any experience with it so far. So we’ll see whether it’s true but I’m full with hopes. 🙂
Aesthetically the changes are not that big, but the black or whatever colored line around the shoes, the complementer stitches and labels are gone which would bother me personally if we were talking about black (or any other color) than white. But in this case it’s better like this. Finally the silver metal rings on the holes for the laces are replaced to matte matching colored ones.
Oh, on the plus side I got an extra white laces to them which I don’t think I would youse with these ones as I prefer the off-white ones but they were good enough to replace the ones in my old Converse which just requires this plain white laces.
In short the whole shoe become even more clean and simple but also more comfortable and maybe more lasting too. I cannot wait to wear them but also I’m a bit afraid of dirt. I have to
What do you think? Do you like them?
