The best cool trainers for teens..... and adults! :D
on 8 May 2013
I ordered these as a surprise gift for my 'Vans-Loving' daughter :) She lives in Vans and owns about 10 pairs to date! However she has never had a pair of 'Vans Hi-tops' and when she saw these she kind of hinted to me ;) Anyway I ordered them on the Saturday - before a bank holiday Monday - and they arrived this morning (Wednesday). I gave them to her as she got in from work and her face lit up - always worth it for just that!
They were a great price at £44, as they are £57 - £60 on other sites and in the stores. They look great on her and I know she'll get a lot of wear out of these. Vans can at first be very uncomfortable and she had had many days of sore heels and blisters, until they break in...but she says it is worth it for Vans!
I ordered her the navy in these 'Hi-tops' and they will go with many outfits. My only 'tiny' gripe is...there was a dollop of glue on the front of one of the trainers that I cannot seem to get off...but it hasn't bothered her.... it is me being picky :) Still....I don't think this should be the case with the quality of Vans as none of her other pairs have had glue on them.
Still.......Vans are a great brand and do last a good while. My daughter wears the black for work - those don't last too long with her as of her child-minding job (crawling around the floor with the kids = holes in the canvas after time) so she has had two pairs of the blacks in a year. But she says there are no other trainers or shoes that you can wear all day and not have your feet ache, only Vans keep you comfortable on your feet!
She has various other colours for her social-life, and each pair of those have lasted her a few years to date...but are somewhat tatty now...but in my daughters words...."Vans only look good when they are either brand-new or trashed" :D
