Most Wanted: Vans Old Skool

    Too cool for... you know the rest

    by Austen Tosone and Marissa Smith · January 14, 2017

    Billy Joel sings, “Don’t waste your money on a new set of speakers, you’ll get more mileage from a cheap pair of sneakers.” Whatever you consider cheap is your call, but the message still rings true.

    The Vans Old Skool is the perfect example of the sneaker that gets better the more you wear it. Any true Vans Girl knows that every scuff has a story, and each little ding gives the shoe character.

    Everyone loves a good pair of sneakers—It Girls feel just as at home in them as the girls next door. If you’re a lover of the ‘90s, let these shoes lend a retro cool feel to your outfit. Wear with jeans and a T-shirt for a normcore feel, or with a midi skirt for a more modern look. 

    The Vans take on the low-top lace-up is graphic, cool, and clean, and somehow manages to be both the shoe of the moment and the shoe you’ll bring back season after season. So slip on these kicks and up your mileage count. We think it's time for a new adventure.

    Vans, Old Skool, $60, available at Vans
