Vans Slip-on Shoes Review: Modern Fashion and Sneakers
My review is about Vans slip-on shoes.
I like modern fashion because there are no rules, and you can wear sneakers with everything. I especially like the idea of having slip-on shoes, which are a bit different from regular sneakers. They don’t have shoe laces, and that makes them look less athletic. Slip-on shoes have thick soles, and this gives them more structure. And these are exactly the characteristics needed to successfully match slip-ons with casual and classy clothes. I’d also recommend getting leather Vans slip-on shoes instead of canvas because leather makes them look more casual.
My slip-ons are made of leather, and they are metallic gold. I absolutely love the color because it makes them so chic. This gold color looks different depending on the light. The shoes sparkle very beautifully when it’s sunny outside. Inside, the gold color looks a bit darker compared to outside. I spent some time hunting for the slip-on shoes on the Internet. Unfortunately, Vans doesn’t have a similar color now, but they have rose-gold shoes. I saw them, and they are absolutely fantastic.

I also like Vans pink leather slip-ons and suede slip-ons. They are beautiful and would work well in casual outfits. Moreover, these colors are neutral, and they are close to one’s skin tone and make one’s legs longer. They also would look great with any other colors.
Vans slip-on shoes are made of genuine leather, and they have canvas inside. The quality is very good, and I think that I will wear them for a long time. They are comfortable, but they don’t have arch support. Also, I would not recommend them to people who have high arches because they are quite tight on the top, and it may put pressure on one’s feet.
When I started to wear them, they gave me blisters above my heels, so I had to use band aids. I wear them with low-cut socks to create the illusion of bear feet.
Vans slip-on shoes are true to size. My slip-ons are 7.5 Women, and I usually buy 7.5 in stores such as Aldo and Steve Madden. I measured my foot, and it’s 23.8 cm. I did the measurements according to this guide. I tried on the shoes in size 7, and they were very tight for me. Size 7.5 fits me well, but the shoes are quite wide.
When you buy shoes, make sure that they are the right size. These shoes are marked with men and women’s sizes, and sometimes it causes confusion.
How to wear Vans slip-on shoes?
Slip-on shoes, a t-shirt, and skinny jeans is a simple and pretty combination. As a top, you can put on a printed blazer or a bomber jacket.
It’s a bit more challenging to wear slip-on sneakers with dresses. In the second part of my review, I will show how I wear my shoes and how to wear sneakers with dresses.
