Yes, they are dirty old skate shoes, but they are Vans, and I love 'em. Anybody whoever grew up skateboarding, surfing and snowboarding knows that feeling of wearing your favorite pair of Vans. They are more than just a brand, they're an attitude, a lifestyle, an old school identity that has transcended with classic style. I once fell in love with a boy because I first noticed him wearing a pair of classic checkerboard slip ons. Sometimes, a dirty old pair of skate shoes can change your whole life.
