I’ve been known to buy Vans just for the pure audacity of some of their designs – My current pair are a bright blue Mexican-skull and Paisley type deal-y.
So I was surprised when I found myself salivating at the sight of these simple, little tennis shoes. The leather laces and matching piping give an added level of geekiness that any Poindexter would appreciate, but I think this is all part of the charm.
Sling on with a pair of comfy cut-offs or smarten up and combine with your favourite straight-legged slacks for $50 (about £25). It’s all good.
