The things with Vans is, is that I used to think that they were absolutely hideous, up there with Crocs in the department of undesirable footwear. I actually still do, those slip on checked Vans? Disgusting. However, I started to come around to the idea of Vans as a brand when I found out they made low tops, and I fell in love with my first pair in April at the Canoe Inc. AW12 Press Day.
They're not out until the end of August, and they are actually from the teen range but come in adult sizes too. I love how they are lighter, fresher and much more girly and Summery than the black and pink version that is currently in stores (see below). Also, I love how the neon green inside compliments the neon green tongue.
Bright Pink and Black Two Tone Vans Lo Tops: £40, Fluorescent Yellow Vans Low Tops: £45, Turquoise Vans Low Tops: £45, Purple Vans Low Tops: £45
Until those beauties hit the market, at the moment Vans do already do some pretty awesome fluorescent and brightly coloured pairs which are the perfect go to shoe for this Summer. If you want to go all out highlighter this yellow pair is sure to draw attention, but personally I'd go for this pretty and highly wearable turquoise shade. (I'm a sucker for anything a pretty blue or purple shade, and my Keds are already purple!)
Do you own a pair of Vans? If so, what style and colour, and if you own a pair of Keds too how do you think they compare?
