American flag converse

I've been requested to get these as a gift but it's proving hellish on the high street. Everywhere that's had them has since sold out completely and the likes of Schuh wont be stocking them again until October!

It's these ones: Linkyy

Anyone know any reputable online retailers that stock them? I've tried the usual stores and ebay but can't find any and don't want to purchase off some dodgy website that'll take 7 days+ to ship a pair of trainers!

Thanks!

I'm not arguing with said person, it's what I've been asked to pick up and I shall if I can find them.

I did, thanks. Unfortunately I can't make heads or tails of that converse website From the looks of things they don't actually have a stocklist? The stores they do have listed I tried today with no luck, unfortunately!

Or, http://www.schuh.co.uk/mens-white-an...lag/3421411370
If you go to 'check and reserve' you can chap in your postcode and find a shop that has a pair.
In stock in: The Fort & Silverburn.

Checked The Fort today, man! They didn't have them at all Plus, it'd be a ladies size I'm after, unfortunately.

A bit like the one you look like for not reading the OP correctly?

Men's shoe sizes are usually 7-12, so good luck.

But these are similar - http://www.urbanexcess.com/p-8478-wo...-whitered.aspx

Exactly what I said, I couldn't find a stock list on their site to order from, only a list of stores that sell converse(like you've just pointed out). I've tried every store that they list and none have them.

Am I speaking in English?

I've found the shoes on the Office website - Bit worried as I'd require them for Friday and there's no options for First Class delivery. Is that leaving it too late? Any idea what their delivery times are like in the real world? They state dispatch can take up to 5 days

Sorry, I didn't see the part where you said about the stock list...but yes, I hate sites like that too!

Atleast you've tried phoning all of them

*also, there's some nice converse in the sale there too... I spent way too much.*
