White Vans Man: Pete Sparrow shows what makes Vans special

Maybe its something to do with the fact that shoes for the last few years have been low profile (read: thin soled) but there’s something about the chunky soles on a pair of classic Vans canvas boat shoes that is looking very right now. Gorgeous photo blog Backyard Bill captures the essential cool of white Vans in the latest update, featuring the charmingly named Pete Sparrow. This UK-born-Manhattan-living adonis pairs his Vans with everything, from jogging pants and swimming shorts to rolled up indigo denim and, my favourite, these wide pale pants.
