A shoe company that started up back in the 1960's. They make skateboarding shoes that are relatively inexpensive and are generally comfortable. Originally worn exclusively by skaters, now every fucking Hollister and Abercrombie brat has the fugly checkered slip ons because they are fucking trendwhores who buy into whatever is "in". It's kinda ironic how they went from being lyk totally gangsta G dawg wearing Nikes and listening to 50 Cent to being lyk totally punk rawker and listening to Simple Plan.
Other than the fugly slip ons, Vans makes good shoes.
This what a compliment on someone's Vans should look like:
Dudeman #1: Hey dude, I like your Vans. Half Cabs?
Dudeman #2: Yeah, I bought them at Zumiez. Really comfortable shoes.
This is how the conversations usually go:
Heather: Ohh mah gawd Becky, I lurrvvv your checkered Vans!!!!!
Becky: I know, we are like so totally punk rawker!!!!
Heather: We should, like, go listen to like, Simple Plan!!!!
Becky: Yeah!!!! And after that we'll waste our parents' money on overpriced clothing at Hollister!!!!
Heather: Like oh my gawd totally!!!!
Skate shoes for those who do not skate.
All those kids you see with slip-on checkerboard Vans don't really skate.
skater shoes that will last for a long time and are pretty cool looking and not that expensive
me:dude look at this awesome slip-ons
my friend:heck yes those are awesome!
Skateboarding shoes that can survive a nuclear holocaust, and usually have before they finally make it across the Atlantic. Always look dated, and will never wear out.
Argh! Elverys got more Vans in and they seem to be 1982 stock!
Vans are shoes for cool people who dont want to waste a hundred bucks on shoes.
"Get a pair of Vans chukas or checkerboard slip ons"
The original skate shoe; what etnies try to copy. worn by "old school" skaters who still where baggy pants and not tight ones like those fucks with what they consider to be "real" skate shoes. Will last forever
1. Dude! those vans kick ass!!
2. I know white and black all the way
1. what are those fucks with tight pants and emericas doing??
2. falling off their boards aparently
Shoes mostly worn by skaters. They are not that expensive, lots of designs, comfortable as hell, and will last you a really long time. All all around great shoes. Also just because one wears vans and doesn't skate does not make them a poser, unless they claim to skate but they don't. I don't skateboard at all, I wear them because of the reasons I listed earlier. They are just shoes people come on
Idiot: Hey man those are nice Vans, looks like you don't skate a lot cause they are in good shape.
Person: I don't skate at all actually
Idiot: You are such a poser
Person: Go jump in front of a truck right now
