It's not legal but there may be something in their terms and conditions to get round it. Kick up a fuss anyway cos it's out of order

I just bought a pair of Chelsea boots from Topman, £42.50 with my sister's student discount, was going to buy a Dior pair but decided to get cheap ones and buy an expesnive pair of hi-top trainers for when I get fed up with boots which i'm sure will happen

Think I'm going to do the opposite, well I've already half done it, bought vans sk8 his in all white yesterday and I'm going to treat myself to some expensive boots. Probably not chelseas maybe more motorbikeish like the diors from votc.

Surprisingly pleased with the vans sk8 his I think they at least equal any of my expensive trainers shame that vans rip so easy. Mind I could get 6 pairs for the price of one ysl etc

They were the premium blazers from a few years back.
Couple of pairs at footcandy, otherwise eBay.

yeah generics right, i nearly ordered them ages ago from pickyourshoes but didn't. Agreed russ these are the only blazers i get, these are extra cool because they got the thin swoosh!

No sorry, wish they would! the closest i got is the white/red ones. For some reason i got a feeling they did do some all white but i can't recall seeing any either, i may have dreamt it!

false economy imo - cheap shoes look and are cheap shoes. there are no shortcuts with shoes - you get what you pay for unless you can source a genuine bargain. Paul Smith are good for Chelsea boots, they often have them in the outlets - coggles has some in the sale online and ebay us often has 'em.

Just say no to inferior footwear.
