Skate shoes for those who do not skate.
All those kids you see with slip-on checkerboard Vans don't really skate.

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

a good pair of shoes, so what if soo many people wear them, you shouldn't worry about what other people wear, most new vans coming out today have snazzy designs that fit almost anybodys personality, ALSO you don't have to be some different label to buy them, you just have to be a person looking for a good deal on a pair of shoes that will last you a while.
person #1:"damn....I need some shoes, but I want some colored wacky ones.."

kid with vans:"you should buy some vans bro, I'll bet you'll find some for you!"

person #1:"I don't have much money, I don't know, them Jordans be running expensive.."

kid with vans: "naw bro, they got em in your size and style..just check it out, plus dey cheap..like 50 bucks or cheaper!"

person #1: "oh fo realz? ight dats sweet!!"

Skater shoes worn by skater, ex-skaters, people going to start skating, people who hang with skaters, or people that just want to look cool so wear the shoes (which makes up most of the majority)
Vans come in forms like: Checkered, skulls, hearts, stars, picture formers, plain

1.)The only way I can stay on my CRAPPy SKATE BOARD because the DAMN GRAIN covers only HALF the fruity tooty deck because my DUMB ASS little cousin found sandpaper.

2.) Their slip ons made checkerboards overly worn and used

3.) If a tornado blows through your house make sure you're wearing these
Shit man. Who leaves sand paper in reach of an evil five year old? I can't even do a grind without my Vans.
Random chick?: Oh my ga-
Crazy Person: YES!! WE FREAKING KNOW! Checkerboards whoopidy doo! IT's OVER.

Cheap plain skater shoes. Stop saying they have tons of designs. The only designs are the bottom of the shoe which is usually white, and the whites laces. And other Vans have the tip of the shoe colored or some ugly line by the ankle. They're simply just like Converse except they're missing the gay white tip. Most people say they last a lifetime only because those people don't probably skateboard or even doing anything. of course they last a life time they're for going out not for soccer or something athletic.
Vans are white trash sneakers that should be for pedophiles bringing their victims to their vans. You're not cool just because you wear the same brand of Lil Wayne, do you really want to follow a rapper with a voice that belongs in a cartoon and is too high to even notice what hes wearing?
White Trash:Dude you just stepped on my new Vans. Gosh im trying to be cool.
Normal Person: Go fuck yourself
