I had two pairs of Van's (slip on and lace), but I could never get into them. I didnt like how they looked on my feet. My boyfriend is a surfer and wears them like crazy. My father recently got into them too I think they look better on men anyway.

^It's strange you should mention that because I was hesitant towards the slip-on version. I thought they were feminine. Even though I have seen a ton of guys wearing them. They're just so wearable and go with everything. I was looking into getting some Converse but their sizing is horrendous.

I just ordered the white because white tends to go with everything I wear. Plus, I couldn't resist another pair of 106's except this time I went for navy:

I've had three pairs over the last six years: a checkered pair of slip-ons in tones of dark and light blue, which I haven't worn much tbh... a very chunky, skater-like pair that I wore to death and that I can't recall the name of - it doesn't exist anymore, so it doesn't help -, and a pair of Vans Era which I got two years ago and are still in great shape (although starting to tear up), this pair:

Not really the appropriate thread, but I didn't feel like starting a new one. Sacai x Vans, all fuzzy and in koala grey (or black)!

Anyone know if they're a DSM exclusive? And how much they are? I don't see them on their website yet.

thanks runner...

are those for women?
i like the nubby black/slvr tweed ones...
i do think they look better on men though, as some others have said...
even my dad just got a pair~!

the sacai fleecy ones still make me go "mmmmmm"...
just thinking about how cozy they must be to wear...
i think i would wear the high tops like crazy if i owned them...
just because of how comfy they must be...

i love that they have no laces and can just be pulled on like boots...

the tweed models are unisex (just like the sacai models), coming in 15 sizes from 22.5 to 29.5 cm.
the last used there is the vintage one from the 70's. so they might look slightly different on you from the current vans.
