    I'll soon buy some Vans slip-on, but I don't know which colour. What are your favourite Vans? ^_^

    The classic checkered black and white ones are my fave!! I use them A LOT. They're slightly destroyed! oops! :P And my dad wants to throw them to the rubbish hehehe.
    I also love this ones and just ordered them :smile:

    ^ My brother got a pair of those. :woot: I used to think they were sort of corny because they reminded me too much of Keds that the old ladies wear. Lovely, pixie dust. ^_^

    A girl at my work wears a navy blue color I adore on her. ^_^ I think I need to get a fairly subtle color so that it will go with anything I have on.

    ^navy blue's a nice colour and can go with a few things
    did you know you can buy custom vans?
    you just choose the type of shoe and then the colours :smile: takes between 5 to 7 weeks to arrive but at least you get exactly what you wanted :smile:

    I would so get them custom made, but that's money down the drain. :P:lol: I like to keep 'em simple so that they can go with everything. I have a friend who bought some sort of Reeboks in hot pink and neon yellow, and she can only wear it with this ONE pink shirt with gold lettering she owns. So, the pair I buy must go with a variety of outfit combinations I come up with. ^_^

    ^ The custom isnt much more that pre-made ones. I had one done and it was maybe $10 more to get the color combos I wanted for a present.

    I will dig out some of my vans and take pics....I have a few limited edition Marc Jacobs ones and limited Vans.

    I also paint white Vans and just do some random art on it.

    Pics to come!

    True they're a bit more expensive but as Sephora_Socialite it's not that much. lol! Hate it when that happens!! Though your friend's shoes sound pretty cool!!
    and Sephora_Socialite mind posting the pics of the white ones you've painted? ^_^

    Susan are they more comfortable with the changing of the soles? Can you notice a big difference?

    pixie - I like those!!
