For the love of Vans

Although I've never been a part of the skateboarding culture growing up, Vans has always appealed to me. It was only in the later years, however, that I've really been fond of them...maybe, because having kids meant I'm surrounded by the youth culture (more so now than in my youth where I was such a serious student aka nerd).

Anyhoo, I thought I'd show my collection to celebrate Vans' 50th anniversary...small but all dear to me:)

This is not a sponsored post (as I've never done a sponsored post). I just really love Vans.


 These are my youngest's. I like how tattered it looks.

Are you a fan?

  12. My mom's dad had worn the checkerboard Vans consistently since the 80s - seeing those always put a smile on my face
