Something I don’t see enough of…

Slip on Vans.
The first pair of Vans I ever had were checkerboard slip on’s. I was 15 and they were adorned with pink skulls, it must be noted that if I ever saw these again in my wardrobe I would surely wake up in cold sweats – because it would obviously be a terrible nightmare, but I must not let that one mistake ruin my perception of just how great the classic slip on can be.
First released in 1966 you would be a fool to deny this is and always will be a classic.
Vans Vault has been injecting these into the market, Nick Wooster recently made a pair of Camo slip on’s his first purchase at JC Penney (since being appointed some top dog role there), cool guys like these guys are wearing them.
Such a great change from the sea of Authentics tsunami’ing the market.
Keep an eye out for some of these slip on classics at Area 51 over the next month or so.
