There’s something so cool about owning a pair of Vans – after all, they’re a classic for a reason. Since these shoes are a summer staple, we decided it’s time to create a list of the best Vans of the season. The brand recently released a mule version of its classic black-and-white slip-on sneakers. You better believe we’ll be wearing these with a pair of cutoffs and a tank top while we’re hanging out in the backyard. We’re also obsessed with the brand’s collaboration with NYC designer Sandy Liang. The collab is bursting with early-2000s trends, like shoes in a blush-pink velour material, which reminds us of our favorite velour sweatsuits of yore. Some of the shoes also have metal charms and built-in ankle bracelets!
If you’re more of a tie-dye person, we’ve got you covered there as well. The brand’s Aura collection will keep you in good spirits (and maybe good fortune!) with its tie-dye hues. We’ve also included the brand’s glitter style, which is perfect for days you want to be a little extra. If you’re more into the classics, we’ve included some of the brand’s iconic designs, like the checkered slip-ons or Old Skools. Keep reading to check out our favorites of the season and shop these affordable picks.
