A few years ago Diana and I went sneaker shopping. Little did I know it but she was looking to replace her worn out pair Vans slip ons with a shiny new pair of the exact same shoe! As someone who has four IKEA Billy bookcases full of shoes, this was totally foreign to me.
I watched her replace the rundown sneakers for years until I finally got my feet into a pair of Vans.
Suddenly I got her.
I didn't have to break these in like my Converse All-Stars (which are super cute but let's face it, hurt like hell). I can wear Vans for long periods of time and be fine, which is exactly why they have become a staple in my closet and why they're the only shoe I wear to the airport. Seriously.
Just the other day I picked up my first pair of classic black Vans. These have a platform though so I get an extra inch of height and they're still super comfy.
There are currently nine pairs of Vans on my IKEA shelves (including the limited edition Nintendo SK8-HI, which you can see how I styled here).
Finally, I get Diana.
