Vans are fashion-forward trendy sneakers? Every skater would be appalled with that idea, but hey - it's true.
Although they primarily served as skateboarding & BMX shoes, they've became an item of lust, and a must-have in every fashionista closet. Especially the printed ones.
Every high-street brand is producing a look-a-like version of the Vans Classic plimsoll, but the collaborations that Vans has - no one can beat.
From Kenzo through Disney to Liberty - each small & big name in the world of design & fashion has collaborated to create a unique pair of Vans. The classic blacks & colour-blocking ones are still popular, but everyone is talking about the printed pieces. It goes in every direction - Aztec, Mickey Mouse (& his whole gang), Hawaii, floral, graphic, animal... It's everything you can wish for & more.
I'm absolutely in love with the red-yellow-blue Aztec printed pair designed in a collaboration with an online shop called Bodega (I posted the collection on Facebook as soon as it got out as I easily adore them). Let's be straight - I wouldn't mind getting any pair of these, it's printed extravaganza!!! :)
