Camper taking on Vans

Camper shoes were always ones I tended to look at on other people’s feet with envy – I loved the way they looked, but I was consistently put off by the fact that they were so expensive in comparison to other brands.

You can probably guess, then, how happy I was to discover that the advent of summer has prompted the Spanish company to launch a relatively affordable canvas shoe to take on the market currently dominated by Vans, Converse and the like (a picture of the new design can be found on the Guardian website).

Not only do the shoes look great (my favourite has to be the sandy-coloured model pictured by the Guardian, but there are other styles available), but they have eco credentials to match in their use of organic cotton.

The only downside, as far as I see it, is how we’re all going to choose between them, the pair of Supergas we’ve had our eye on for so long, and those Spring Courts everyone’s been talking about lately. I guess it’s like they they used to say – we’ve never had it so good.
