I have been a contrarian for as long as I can remember, even though it sometimes lands me in trouble, it never does in the sneaker queue. Whilst everyone was trying to get a pair of Stan Smith’s and Adidas shell toes, I was busy asking myself why I never owned a pair of the iconic vans slip-ons. I never really took a liking to this iconic sneaker until they buttered it up with this croc leather upper, instantly the shoe went from skate parks to a coffee date for me. I am all for solid color sneakers, hence my new found love for this all white number from the iconic California based brand. I am happy the brand is stepping into the direction; this clean look will easily fit into sartorial wardrobe thus appealing to a more matured audience. Cleaning these bad boys are so easy as well, wet wipes do a good job both on the upper and the vulcanized sole when I am rushing out the door, which is usually the case most days. If you are stuck on your next sneaker purchase and you are outta options for a versatile, clean and affordable candidate this might just be it.
