They call them Beach Glass...

I saw a picture on tumblr and that was it. The mission was set and I needed to complete it.

For about 2 hours I googled like a demon, exhausting all website options in the hunt for a pair of Converse.

But not just any Converse.

This pair came in what I think is the prettiest colour I have ever seen on a pair of tennis shoes. If I was to describe the shade in a real world sense I would say "Tiffany blue - but fresher".

Converse call it Beach Glass and many websites describe it as "seasonal mint". In any case my tardiness to the trend meant that finding a size 5 turned into a total mission.

By some miracle ASOS randomly restocked the site and whilst the size 5's were low in stock, I managed to score myself a pair. I let out a little squeal and have waited excitedly for their arrival.

I got them today and wore them immediately. They are comfortable and oh so pretty. This is such a great spring/summer shade. For reference I wore them with one of my favourite uber low back ASOS sack dresses and loved the look....I will no doubt repeat it and take a proper picture next time but today it was all about the shoes :)





In the UK/Europe - you can get these on ASOS (currently only size 9 - Link! ), Next (currently size 8 - Link!) and a surf shop called Surfdome that have them in a 5 - Link!

In the US - you lot are lucky, Nordstrom have lots of sizes - Link!

I feel like this has unleashed some Converse loving within me.

I have pairs of these shoes that are about 12 years old and still going strong and there's a fondness that I always feel for a shoe that is reasonably priced, comfy, cool and long-lasting.

A pair of pastel yellow, pink, baby blue and grey are now required...

All in good time :)

  22. I love Converse! That color is gorgeous but I like to keep it plain with a pair of black high tops. I need to get new ones though because I've had the same pair for 7 years now.

  25. I can see why you fell in love with them! That colour is so freakin' pretty! With my size 10/11 feet, Converse have a tendency to make my feet look like boats. Your so lucky, because those look great on you!

  31. I have these but with the slim soles, in a size 5, that I bought in New York 3 years ago. They just got a hole in the sole because I have worn them to death and I am utterly devastated! I have 3 other pairs of Converse but these were my favourite :( xx

  40. I have the pastel yellow ones, but the colour you're wearing looks so awesome that i'm thinking about buying another pair.

  41. I'm obsessed with Converse, I have them in White and Black Low Top and in in Pink High Tops and I adore them. The Black ones are probably my most worn shoes. So much so that I need to replace the laces and scrub the soles. They're just so comfortable and they really do last forever. I want them in all of the colors, but especially those Beach Glass ones.
