So, in the past, I’ve been 100% opposed to the shoe Vans. They didn’t match up with my style. However, I’ve been noticing that they’ve become more of a socially acceptable shoe opposed to one that only hipsters/skaters/edgy people would wear. And I’ve been realizing that I need a light, close-toed, durable, casual shoe to transition into spring. If I could find a preppier alternative (other than Sperries, which I’ve found look awkward on me) I would! But I cant really seem to find one. So tell me: are Vans a horrible idea? Would my shoe shelf adorned with Tory flats and Jacks cringe? You tell me. Inbox me with your thoughts- I’d really appreciate it!
