My color shoes is black. my friend gave me when he didn't use it. its size is 41.

I'm wearing shoes in a size 43 they're brown and i really like them especially when i'm wearing them they look very pretty.
I have a question please! i notice in a sentence "sam doesn't buy the trainers in the end" i wanna focus about "in the end" what is the difference between "in the end" and "at the end"

Hello Mohsin

my shoes which usually putting on are brown, they are in 42 size. I have put them on since three years ago because they have not made rag , thus their material have been the best quality.
I learned these words & phrases:"trainers" "I’ll have a look for you" "We’ve got a 10 in white"

I am wearing trainers in 40. They are black and purple. I have them since a very long time. With video I learn vocabulary "bit too big" and "the white ones too much"

I am wearing shoe of size 42 in ash colour. The new words phrases Iearnt includes the following: how much are they, have you got them, size 11 in black, they're a bit too big, no thanks and thanks anyway.

I learned a new phrase. I didn't know how to say "these" in the context of a converstion. I know now. it's correct to say, "the white ones" in context of this conversation.
