Vans Leather Slip On
Vans are so amaz­ing­ly ver­sa­tile. Sure, they’ve been the stan­dard skate shoes for eons now, but they can also dress up with­out break­ing a sweat. The per­fect exam­ple of that is this mod­el, in soft leather with tonal gor­ing on the sides, con­trast stitch­ing and logo tag, with a hearty neu­tral sole that exudes not only easy com­fort but casu­al style that can hit the opera and skate on home with­out los­ing fash­ion points or street cred. Import­ed. Spot clean.

* Leather, rub­ber, EVA
