Revisited: Vans Trainers

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.

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?

  1. I'm a converse girl myself. I live in Copenhagen and sneakers are the way forward here, with all girls wearing them with everything from jeans to dresses. Vans are popular here too, and they always look really good. These ones are such fresh fun colours too!

    Lovely post, as I love Vans! Loved them since I was a teenager! I only have three pairs now though, cream, black and purple. I want the floral ones you can get, and the cute cream ones with strawberries! They're really comfortable and last so long, they're worth the investment. I wear mine to work, and they withstand everything. I have one pair of keds, and they're a re-purchase, just the plain white. And they're just as comfortable. But I don't think they'll ever be as popular as Vans. I think Vans appeal to a wider audience. But that's my opinion!

  3. I love Vans (wearing a pair today!) They're definitely my favourite shoe brand. I do like a good pair of Keds, but I'm still a Vans girl at heart.

  4. I used to wear them all the time when I was younger! I think they're one of these brands that was really popular in my beach town, but I still love them, especially on guys. There is nothing quite like a man in Vans or high tops. Ah...

    I love Vans! Im wearing black with white polka dot ones as we speak and ive had them for 7 years!!! I dont think ive had any of my other shoes that long! My one problem is that I dont find they look very good with dresses? And I only wear dresses. xxx

    I've always been a Vans girl, I love them. From the checked ones, to the high tops but I love the low rise lace up ones the most, a bit like converse really. They do some really fun collaborations. I'd quite like a neon pair for later in the year

  7. I don't think I've ever owned a pair of Vans...I really want to because I love the way they look, I've just never found the pair for me. My husband on the other hand has bought the same pair of Vans year after year for as long as I can remember so they must be doing something right! :) x
