Vans U Old Skool Black/White
Vans’ Old Skool mixes the brands iconic California vibe, retro style and modern trends to create a great pair of sneakers.
Vans was created in the 1960s in southern California, and the brand has more or less taken over the world since then, thanks to their trendy, sporty skating sneakers. With Old Skool, you can almost hear the skateboard wheels turning and feel the Cali sun on the concrete, and this is actually the first pair of Van sneakers which have the brand’s iconic stripe under the soles.
Vans U Old Skool comes in classic black with a white stripe – Vans’ iconic colours which work just as well with some black chinos as with your favourite pair of stonewashed jeans. Or why not pair them with a dressy jacket and skinny jeans for the perfect combination of street style and high end fashion?
Suede Meets Fabric
Vans are known for mixing suede and fabric, and that was the clear choice when they created Old Skool. You can easily clean the suede with a cleaning stone if the sneakers get dirty. If the chunky white sole doesn’t look so crispy clean, you can freshen it up with a damp cloth or white toothpaste.
When Vans first started making their sneakers, they created their thick soles to help skateboarders stay on their boards. But the soles also make the shoes incredibly comfortable – and they look great on Old Skool.
