slip-on vans

Recommended Posts

i went to a concert this past weekend and this dude's vans, or at least i thought they were vans, caught my attention. they were slipons and had some some sort of diamond pattern on it.....kinda like what you see on cardigans (i think). i think they were purple and also some other shade of purple. anybody know if these were vans or whatever shoe are?

You're right, Vans made argyle slip-ons too. I they came in a grey/black/red colorway and in a shade of purple with other colors like you described. I'm pretty sure it was purple (i'm colorblind hehehe.) I don't think they're in production anymore.

Someone mentioned a while back about slipons with wax on the front. I think it was melted candle wax or something, and supposedly it looks cool. Does anyone have any information about or how to achieve this?

Did they look like these?

If so, they're about three years old. I tried looking for another pair, but I couldn't find them anywhere.

i actually saw the camo highs at abc like a week ago. they're like toys. not nice at all in person.

while i dislike gola, i must admit that their wingtips look nicer then that of vans.

alifes are ill...vans slip ons are the bast for skating.

that's not true at all. unless by skating you mean longboarding or by bast you mean worst ever.

Love Vans slip-ons - got the brown/beige check, grey Marc Jacobs courdoroy, and just picked up some plain cyan/white ones for a bargain on the weekend.. perfect for summer!

speaking of slip-ons... I'm really pissed at myself for sleeping on Gucci's monogram print ones that came out last spring. they had a white midsole, too. Those would have brought me to a whole nother level of stuntastic
