New // Vans Inspired Givenchy's

Oops, I did it again... I stopped by at Shoebaloo again, saw a nice pair of shoes again and bought them again. I've been a fan of Vans ever since my first years in high school - and that's a long time ago now, boohoo - and even though these slip ons by Givenchy aren't a collaboration with Vans (like Kenzo did), they sure are inspired by them. 

When I was in my second year of high school, I decided to buy the classic black and white checked Vans. When I wore them to school for the first time, people stared at me as if they'd seen a ghost. Checked shoes? Oh hell, that was a no no at that time, or so it seemed. Two weeks later, about a dozen of other people were wearing them. I'm not saying I'm a trendsetter, but that's how it goes around here in my little home town: one starts something, the others follow. 

I only wear my old Vans to festivals now, since I've worn them to death. But when I saw these babies by Givenchy, I got a bit nostalgic. Plus, the colors and patterns are too cool. Imagine them with a pair of skinny jeans or with a pair of shorts. They're also a great option to wear for when it's still too cold to wear my Chanel espadrilles

P.S.: My mom hates them.
