… Don’t fix it? If you find a perfect pair of jeans, buy two? I feel like I have always heard these cliché sayings, and never found that they applied to me really. Until now.
Back in 2006 or 2007, I got my first pair of Vans. They were the Authentic style in navy, and were a whole size too big for me. Ultimately, I never really wore them because my foot was always slipping out and I thought I looked like I had clown feet when I put them on.
Fast forward to 2017, when my friend reintroduced me to the brand. From there, it has basically been a blur. I’ve gone from having one pair that was too big, to having over ten pairs in a variety of colors and styles. I find myself waiting for new styles, new prints, and new colors to be released. I wait for collaborations with Vans and other company’s or people. I buy them for my cousins kids as gifts. I’m constantly getting messages on social media about my excessive number of sneakers.
My entire family was constantly questioning why I love the shoe so much, and now NH1 is steady trying to snag pairs out of my closet. HA, NO. They go with everything I wear, I even wear them when I go out in the city, or out in the snow, or to things you wouldn’t imagine wearing sneakers to; they’re classics. Plus, I can really appreciate the Vans culture. If you don’t already know, aside from being a skate shoe, they’re known for being an all inclusive, accepting, and open brand. I find that to be the most amazing aspect, truly.
At this point, I’ve had to shift my closet around, get rid of other shoes, and find a new way to organize my shoes in order to get all my Vans together.
Maybe I am a little crazy… you can be the judge of that. Afterwards, go try them on and figure out why I love them the way I do.
P.S. This was not a sponsored post, though I wish I was that cool.
If you want to get yourself a rad pair of these shoes, visit them on their website for details. My personal preference is the Authentic, but I love ’em all.
