My infatuation with Vans began after I bought my very first pair; slip-ons in classic black and white checkerboard. The rest, as you can see, is history. I even wore a pair for our wedding, as did my hubby and our entire wedding party! My favorite style is the 'Authentic Lo Pro' which I have in purple, hot pink, gray, brown and raspberry/pewter. The gray and purple are the ones that I wear the most. In December, I picked up four additional pairs of Vans while Christmas shopping at the outlets. Each pair was on clearance, and they were buy one get one 50% off, so I got all four for less than $70!
