Although they was abit cheap but they are have good quality till now

Right now I have white shoes, they cost me 19 euros, they are size 35 in Colombia, they are really very beautiful and I like them a lot

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"

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"
