Hey guys! Today I have a slightly different, just for fun post for you about my favourite shoes of all time! Don't worry, this wasn't sponsored by Vans, though I wish it was... These shoes are just the best. I'm currently on my third pair; I've been wearing the same style for years, but I'd love some more! (If anyone knows anyone in Vans PR, could you let them know I'm totally down for a sponsorship? haha! =D)
Anyways, here are my 5 reasons Vans are the all-time best shoes!
1. They're easy to put on and take off!
Late? Shopping and need to take your shoes off to try on pants/dresses/new shoes? Going somewhere else you'll need to remove your shoes? These slide on and off, hands-free, quick and painless! No laces to tie or buckles to buckle!
2. They're super comfy!
They're flat! No stupid heels or platforms to trip on, just a little rubber to protect your feet from the ground. And they're squishy inside for added comfy-factor! I have wide feet, too, but these never feel tight or restrictive!
3. They're available in a huge range of colours & patterns!
You can get Vans to go with just about anything. Black ones will work with so much, the classic checker print is fun and a little punky, and then there are fun colours for spring & summer, or really anytime. Or get white ones, and if you're feeling creative you can customize them to your heart's content! (I buy mine from Zelen online, or their store in Downtown vancouver, but they're available tons of places! Check out Vans' site to see what I mean about selection!)
4. They're Fairly inexpensive!
They seem to range from $55 CAD for classic prints to $75 CAD for things with licensed characters. And $60 for a pair of shoes you can wear every damn day?! That seems pretty good to me, especially considering they last a good couple years of frequent wear! (I like to buy mine from Zelen shoes online or at their Downtown Vancouver store. For americans, you can get them at Zappos.com, among others!)
5. They're classic!
These are a great shoe to fall in love with because they aren't going out of style any time soon. Vans started making this style in 1979... this style is almost 40 years old!! If that doesn't scream classic, I'm not sure what does!
I love these shoes, and live in them as often as I can. I wish it were socially acceptable to wear these babies to interviews, formal occasions, and more jobs. They're the best, and I wish I had a pair for everyday of the week! As I said at the top of this post, I've had 3 pairs so far, and I will surely keep buying them forever!
Let me know what your favourite shoes are! Do you understand my love of Vans?
Thanks for reading!
