…To Boldly Go Where No Mini-Van Has Gone Before!

Hey guys, what do you think of my sweet new ride? Just kidding, I wish I could afford this “Star Trek”-themed “boogie van” (really, that’s a term?) for sale on eBay for $8,500. I’m moving to Los Angeles in a few months and I need a set of wheels, and this 1978 GMC van has all the right vibes I’m looking for. I can picture it now: cruising down the 405, rocking a Baja hoodie, beaming up hotties for intergalactic sexual adventures in the red velvet-covered back seat. Hmm, the auction ended today and it looks like no one bid. Maybe the owner is open to negotiations… [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

My appreciation of Vans may very well be one of the final vestiges of my time as an erstwhile teenage skater-dater. I relish a good pair of the classic skate sneakers: they’re cool and comfortable, and my favorite well-worn white pair goes with everything from rolled-up jeans to summer dresses. Kenzo has teamed up with the brand for three years in a row, releasing limited-edition runs of classic Vans styles decked out in their own intricate florals and splashy prints inspired by looks off the runway. This spring’s jungle-inspired collection pays homage to the Japanese fashion house’s roots — Kenzo Takada, the brand’s namesake, first rose to notoriety when he opened his first Parisian store, Jungle Jap, in 1970. The shoes hit stores and e-commerce on March 15 and are priced at $125. I’m still kicking myself for missing out on the past two collabs, so this might just be the season I finally spring for a pair. $125 is definitely pricey for sneakers, but because they’re a punchy spin on familiar animal prints, I like to think of them as being borderline classic… which makes them an investment piece, right? Those yellow and blue slip-ons are calling my name. [Refinery29]

Hermes Vans We Wish We Could Have

I saw images of these custom-made Hermes Vans yesterday and was practically dying. I don’t really wear flats, like, ever, but I might make an exception for these gorgeously patterned skate shoes, which were custom created by Vans for stylist Robert Verdi. The bright patterns and colors practically scream “I know how to have a laid back good time, dude.” Sadly, these slip-ons aren’t going to be massed produced–they were simply made after Verdi brought in some of his vintage Hermes scarves and had the Vans team re-create them in shoe form. But they are inspiring me to grab a paint brush and a pair of canvas tennis shoes and see what happens. Check out a couple other Verdi-special shoes after the jump! [Huh Magazine] Keep reading »

Canine Vans: Doggie Do Or Don’t?
