Vans Shoes—No SURFBOARD Why Itgirls Prefer Keeping it SIMPLE

08 May 2018 / By Cityrocka Perry
vans-shoes-and-vans-outfit-ideas

Vans shoes for women they’re LITERALLY at every turn here in New York City—-and none of the females that I see are balancing atop a skateboard, BMX bike riding or surfing ocean waves. From out of nowhere, the brand filled in a huge fashion void, one that called for taking it back to the basics. Something outside of what women’s Nike Huaraches, Women’s Adidas NMD, and the like all seem to have in common. This is the new fashion movement, one that requires that you don’t actually “look” like you’re trying too hard to be stylish.

 

What does the OOTD call for exactly? Distressed jeans with an abundance of strategic rips? Check. A tee with words that you vibe to like, I’m a feminist, Check. And let’s not forget to include the hottest kicks of the moment—that awesome pair of Vans shoes. Be it Vans Old Skool, Vans slip ons, Vans sk8 hi, or vans custom made by some artsy type, they’re “It” for the Itgirl, a modern society must-have accessory.

How Her Story Made History

I don’t care how stylish you look in your women’s Vans high top sneakers and Vans outfit. As a Fashion Accessories Blogger, I just won’t have you uninformed, walking these streets with a blank thought bubble floating above your head. You should be informed, capable of responding appropriately AFTER the compliments that you’re likely to receive. By this I mean would you know what to say if someone asks, where did Vans sneakers originate from? The answer to that HAS to be yes. Read on to get schooled, because there’s power in knowledge.

Pharrell Williams Wearing Vans Sneakers

One thing that I am sure of is that I never particularly paid any attention to Vans sneakers, not until I saw Pharrell Williams rocking a pair. If you didn’t know, he was a hella-talented skateboarder. They used to call him SkateBoard P back in the day. But Vans shoes were chronicled to have hit the real history books since the year 1966. Two brothers and company (Paul Van Doren and Jim Van Doren along with partners Gordon Lee and Serge Delia) formulated a plan and set out on a mission to create and sell shoes directly to the public in Cali. If you’re fascinated by self-starters and grassroots businesses succeeding then you can completely learn how Vans originated with a click.

Hold up, wait-a-minute. Before we move onto the next subtopic, I want to share a best  Vans shoes article that I discovered.  What makes it amazing my Clothing Accessories Lovers, is that it thoroughly details how Vans became in Vogue and a MILLION DOLLAR business without losing its SOUL SOLE.

What Types of Vans are There?

So…There are 5 types of Vans shoes that matter most:

Vans Slip Ons – Slip on Vans are comfy and designed for the carefree individual. No, like really, there are no strings attached in this sneakers type which became popular in 1977 with the checkerboard print becoming a rising star.

 

 

The Authentic Vans – Authentic Vans are the classics. This design has endured the test of time since 1966 mainly by the—surfboard, surfboard, (okay so I digressed into a Queen B surfboard line for a sec)  by the surfers and the skaters I meant to say.

The Old Skool Vans –   Everyone, meet the zigged side stripe. Yes. That stripe you see on today’s Vans shoes? That happened in 1978, drawn by one of the founders, Paul Van Doren. They referred to it as the Jazz stripe, and this women’s sneaker wouldn’t be the same without it right?

The Sk8 – HI Vans – the Sk8 -Hi Vans came on the heels of the Old Skoll Vans peeps. It stands second in line when it comes to the addition of the side stripe but they also added above the ankle padding which gave Vans Sk8 Hi an even more stylish design.

The Era Vans – The Era Vans received some assistance on its design from pro skateboarding legends Tony Alva and Stacey Peralta. They included a padded collar and extra sturdy construction to extend the overall sneaker lifespan.

I do like the look of Vans shoes but I never knew the story behind it. I tend to just associate Vans with Warped Tour

Warped Tour yes, but the story behind them was so interesting that I just had to create a fashion blog post! Hope you enjoyed it.

I have never worn Vans for years now (maybe since highschool/college). It feels nostalgic looking at it. I used to wear the slip on and old school!

My daughter is huge fan of vans. She does a lot of walking and she loves that they are cute but don’t kill her feet. We usually get her a new pair every Christmas. I finally tried them myself last year and I’m hooked now too. Thanks showing me some of the great new styles they have.
