Oh, Vans. I remember my first checkered pair I designed in high school with a pale pink trim that I was so proud of. It’s been a while since I’ve had a pair but I couldn’t resist this soft grey tone. I love the casual-cool vibe sneakers give off and this color goes with just about everything.
I paired them with a favorite Madewell high-rise denim (the fit on these is so good + they're beyond comfy!) but I also love sneakers to dress-down dresses and can see these looking adorable with white denim or cutoff shorts into spring and summer. For now, my trusty BlankNYC moto jacket and this oh-so-cozy ribbed sweater work perfectly.
For reference, I range from an 8 to 8.5 and got the Vans in an 8 and they fit perfectly. Though they were slightly squeaky to break in!
Thanks for reading!
