    so i look down at the person below my locker's shoes and i want them sooooooo bad.

    they were red and orange burlap or tweed VANS SLIP ONS.

    i tried to find them online but i couldn't. does anyone know what shoes i'm talking about? and if so where i can get them?

    Love the slip ons. My friend Terry has the ones you are speaking of. I'll ask him where he got them tomorrow.

    I have a LOT of van slip ons..I love them. There are a lot of limited edition styles here in san francisco, A-life editions [ a life nyc ] are my favorite, they're the checkered ones, but instead of being black and white, they're brown and blue and they are checkered all over (instead being white in the sides like normal ones)

    There are also "furry" ones that are checkered brown and light brown (I forget who collaborated with them for this one) and special hand screened ones by an artist whos name slips my mind..but they run about 100.00 and are pretty nice (they have octupi and floral designs on them..)

    I've been drawing on white ones myself...maybe I'll post some pics sometime.

    Hm... I thought I had replied... but i guess the site got trafficy when I went to post.

    My friend said he bought them downtown in Soho.. on broadway... David Z.. But there are like 4 david Z's in NY.

    hey,
    im in love with the same shoes. i have been hoplessly checking ebay every day for them. i know right now that there are a few pairs, not my size though. maybe yours. if so you might be able to snag a good pair for about 20. good luck. :heart:

    i'm not sure if they're the same kind, but i've had a pair of pink/orange burlap-ish slip-ons for a while now + they were my favorite. but i run my sneakers into the ground, so they're kinda unwearable at the mo'.

    i got REALLY excited when i saw another pair at the vans outlet store (for cheap, too), but they were a 10 ... which isn't my size...(i was normally a 9...but i've lost weight + my feet shrunk (?! weird, i know.). so a 10 womens wouldn't even be close...

    i'm not sure if they have vans outlets anywhere else...that would be a good place to check...

    I know this is a dead topic, but I've got the classics, Hemp ones (in the silvery grey), the green checkered ones, and ones with skulls on them (to be ironic). I don't like wearing them in a lot of situations though, because a lot of people have turned them into a really bad trend and put them out of context.

    I can't stand the white ones because they are too plain. The checkered ones are lame too. :p No hard feelings, lmelanie. :flower:

    I love the black ones. I don't like the black ones with the black rubber too. No thank you.

    I love Vans and have worn them since I was little b/c I used to skateboard. I still rock the lace ups on a regular basis. I like the slip ons in bright colors!

    ^I used to wear Vans all the time when I used to skateboard too! ^_^
    Haven't owned a pair for ages, although I've been meaning to get a pair of the plain white ones for awhile...

    I have some with multi-colored petals. :blush: LOVE 'EM. I don't remember where I even got them but when I go into Zumiez or Pacsun, all the styles are similar: checkered or what not.
