Step into spring with some great new sneaker trends. Vans are taking a bold spring forward this year with some great new looks and colors.
Vans Sk8-Hi Reissue canvas high tops are the original kicks but with a vintage flare. Stepping out with bold colors including Chili Pepper, True White, Navy and 10 oz Green. Their online exclusive is the Premium Sk8-Hi Reissue Zip; these ditches the classic canvas for a leather twist and are available in Dress Blues, Black and True White. The Leather Court sneakers are inspired by the 70’s tennis shoe phase and clean lines. The clean edges and low profile are complimented nicely by clean colors Black, Peacoat, and True White. Overall leather may seem to be an upcoming spring trend but Vans is still staying true to the classics. Their new Washed Canvas Authentic sneakers are a great combination of the classic and modern Vans styles.
Ladies are also privileged with the new Sk8-Hi but this year slimmed down to hug the foot for a cleaner look. Some bold colors; Windsor Wine, CastleRock, Black, and Navy are available in addition to some feminine pastel colors; Blanc De Blanc, Gossamer Green and Winsome Orchid. It wouldn’t be spring without a pair of floral sneaker exclusively at Vans. The Floral Mix Authentic Lo Pro is a slick slim low cut sneaker. Pick a subtle mix of black and pink or go bold with black and turquoise. Another great bold print is featured on the Liberty Slip-On. The classic low cut sneaker has taken on a bold and bright look for the spring. The Satchmo is vibrant, retro and just like the rest of the looks, available right now.
I was the 3rd person to grab a pair of Chuck II when they dropped on July 28th. I woke up first thing and went to Champs Sports at the St. Louis Galleria only to find out they didn't get any size 10 Chucks II shipped to their store! I was shocked and left quickly to search other stores like Footlocker whom didn't even have the new Converse what so ever. After walking back to Champs Sports to possibly see If I could fit into the Size 9, I noticed a Converse Chuck 2 display in front of the Journey store! My eyes lit up as I had a feeling of restored faith! I quickly asked one of the employees to bring me a size 10 to try on. I then tried them on and realized how much more comfortable and premium they felt! The upgrades consist of a non-slip tongue, higher quality canvas and a Nike Lunarlon insole. Before leaving I hooked up both of the guys working with a bottle of Star Cleaner so they could keep their new Converse Chucks clean. The next day I heard that the hi-top black Chuck II sold-out everywhere, so I looked on eBay only to see that people had listings set for $199 buy it now! Reselling sneakers is a popular thing to do, especially with retro Jordan releases. It's only a matter of time for the Iconic sneaker to be restocked in selected stores.
