Here at Stylenerds, Vans Authentic are our staple summer shoe. Unchanged since their conception in 1966, Vans Authentic classic skate shoes can be worn with rolled up chinos, shorts or jeans for the perfect casual summer look.
Vans are the original maker of quality lace-up skate shoes. With their iconic chunky white vulcanised sole with the signature waffle construction and canvas uppers, available in a multitude of colours and styles, there is always a pair to suit your outfit and your mood.
Always coming out with new ingenious collections, it didn’t surprise us to hear that Vans latest collaboration was with Crayola. When you hear the name Crayola, memories of your earliest creative masterpieces quickly come to mind. The iconic wax crayon company has joined forces with the original skater footwear company Vans to bring you the Vans Colored by Crayola collection.
The Vans colored by Crayola collection for Autumn/Winter 2010 combines Vans Classics styles capturing the fun spirit and colours of Crayola, including all your favourite crayon shades: Carnation Pink, Dandelion, Blue and Violet. The flecked white design over the bold colours adds to the authentic crayon-drawn look.
Vans have even revamped their iconic Vans Checkerboard pattern, with a special Crayola-style makeover, reminiscent of your childhood doodles. There are 11 different colour patterns available in the Classic Slip-On, Authentic, Era and Sk8-Hi styles in a wide range of sizes.
