Converse All Star Ox From JD Sports : Review

When JD Sports contacted me last week to ask if I would like to review a pair of Converse All Stars canvas shoes. I jumped at the chance. Converse are my favourite brand when it comes to pumps and JD Sports is a retailer you can trust.

I like my comfy trainers and these pumps are perfect for everyday use, Converse are such a classic look. A few weeks ago we visited a JD Sport store in Meadowhall. Their range of footwear was impressive my eldest son bought some trainers for Uni. Very competitive on the pricing. Important for students.

JD Sports have a great range of Converse pumps in-store and on-line available in a wide varity of colours. The only problem is, choosing just one pair to go with everything! Every colour goes great with jeans though, don't they? I picked white as this colour will go with all my dresses too. I wear Converse with almost everything. They are great for dressing up with a skirt/dress, perfect for a casual look with jeans or shorts.

A Bit About Converse From JD Sports

Be an all-star all of the time with our collection of Converse gear for men, women and kids!

Converse have exploded onto the scene in recent years with a collection of the latest and greatest hoodies, t-shirts and footwear for the whole family. Whether you are a fan of their classic All Star trainers or you prefer a modern twist such as the iconic Star Player range, you’ll be sure to find the Converse look for you here at JD.

Pimp Up Your Reebok :Upcycled

These stick on crystal jewels I picked up from the Pound shop are my new favourite crafty thing. I will be sticking them onto everything. For this recycle project all I used was half a pack (50p's worth) some glitter, glue and modge podge...


These trainers were in the garage waiting to be put into the recycle box. Old, dirty but with still a good sole on them, I thought I would give them a make over...


You will need...

  • Old trainers
  • Stick on crystals
  • Strong glue
  • Silver glitter
  • Red glitter
  • Modge podge
  • Old pot for modge podge and glitter.
  • Glue brush.

What to do...

  • Glue a line around the outside of the area you want to cover, a little at a time as the glue dries fast (enough for a strip of crystals).
  • Take a strip of crystals and place on the glue, moving to curves in pattern.
  • Repeat inwards, going round and round until you reach the middle.
  • Pull off a few crystals for any little gaps left and stick in.
  • Leave to dry.
  • Mix a little modge podge and silver glitter for tops of shoes, brush the glitter glue over the tops.
  • Leave to dry.
  • Mix some modge podge and some red glitter.
  • Paint the red glitter over heels, ( and anywhere else like back or tongue) wrap some tin foil over glue to keep it from drying.
  • Repeat above around 3 or 4 times.
  • Wash the shoe laces in a bit of bleach, for a new effect.

Jelly Sandals : Next Big Trend?

Remember wearing the jelly shoes and sandals or shoes when you was younger?

I remember wearing them around the 80's and my children wearing them when they was little too.

I had the big holey see through plastic bags too, loved them!!

They brought them out for adults last year but are set to be a big trend this year as they are everywhere I look!

Not brave enough last year but at a bargain price, I will try any fashion trend.

I have seen all colours around and mostly priced between £9.99 -£19.99 but when I stumbled upon them today in Primark at £4.00 a pair, I had to buy some.

Which colour florescent, no black, no glitter...what to do? oh well I brought all the colours they had in!!

What do you think?

At first try they feel so comfy too...

If I get on with them ok, I'm going for the style with a chunky heel next...

Up Fashioned Ruby Slipper Style Glitter Shoes...

Have I created the perfect pair of shoes?  "No"

Have I created the perfect ornament?  "yeah!!!!"

I love love love this pair of shoes, think Dorothy from The Wizard Of Oz's shoes with heels!!

But this was a pair I brought years ago from the car boot sale that don't fit....

I brought these shoes cos the were brand new, I didn't really like them but for a £1.00 and new they were a bargain.

I might have liked them , if they fit but...

I got them home but they were to small.


For years in the garage...

Ahh "these can be my modge podge glitter shoe test pair right!!" "I thought"

Modge podge, glitter, a wilkhow tutorial and a pair of unused shoes, simple eh?

Oh and some red nail polish to change the brown bit at the toes...

Might not fit me but they look amazing on my widow, catching the sunshine and shining glitter..

Great for a photo shoots though!?!
