One good reason to hold onto that old gnarly pair of sneakers hidden in the back of your shoe closet? It will likely make a comeback in the next decade or so. A fine example is Vans‘ iconic sneakers that have been heralded as the summer shoe of 2017. Who would’ve thought that this skater-favourite from the ’90s would reclaim its title as the It sneaker this year?
First made popular in the ’82 cult classic “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”, Vans Old Skool didn’t see a resurrection as major as last year—when a certain award-winning rapper wore it to the White House for a special appearance. This past fashion week, it was repopularised as a street style staple with editors and influencers repping ’em in tandem with high fashion threads.
The beauty of a pair of Vans lies in its versatility. Wear it with jeans, frocks, skirts and even long dresses—anything goes with this popular silhouette. Quite like its American sneaker counterpart, Vans caters for both men and women with a huge range of designs. Celebs such as Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Ryan Reynolds are fans of these iconic shoes—from the classic checked slip-ons to the lace-up Old Skools.
Similar to other sneaker brands in the market, Vans has also jumped on the designer collaboration trendwagon. It has partnered with luxury fashion designers such as Kenzo, Marc Jacobs, and even the renowned Karl Lagerfeld on limited edition shoe designs. If you’re a Snoopy fan, the Vans x Peanut collection of illustrated kicks is everything you’ve dreamed of, and more. Those who are into the streetwear scene can get their hands on Vans collabs with Supreme, Aries, Opening Ceremony and Anti Social Social Club. The best part?
