- Vans Sk8-Hi. It is the most iconic high-top sneaker from Vans. It has previously been rocked by both skater and punk subcultures. Its unique and padded style isn’t easy to dress up, so it’s best to stick to casual outfits. Aim for a relaxed outfit with an urban street vibe.
- Vans Authentic. It is traditionally made with a canvas upper. Keep your look minimalistic with a neutral design or spice things up with a bolder color or pattern. However, the rest of your outfit should be clean and sleek if you decided to go for a neutral style.
- Vans Slip-Ons. They are classic pieces from the late 70s and 80s. They are commonly spotted in hip hop, skating, graffiti, and BMX cultures. They are ideal for casual gigs and can also work for formal settings.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Should a man over 50 wear Vans sneakers?
A. It would be on a case-to-case basis. But if you feel like wearing Vans, even if you are too old for it, no one’s stopping you. After all, there are no rules as to who should and should not wear Vans. Personally, I think it’s cute for older men to don a piece that we normally see in younger generations, say teens. But my only advice is that don’t go overboard – maintain a low profile by sticking with basic outfit combos. Also, choose Vans in neutral colors like navy blue, military green, and plain black.
Q. Do you wear socks with vans slip-ons?
A. Yes. You can wear invisible socks. They will provide more comfort and will help reduce the odor caused by going fully sock-free. When wearing visible socks, choose neutral colors for a classic look and bold colors or patterns for a fun vibe and fashion-forward style.
Q. Are slip-on shoes supposed to be loose?
A. You know you have good slip-ons when they are naturally snug and neither too tight nor loose. A few tough elastic panels in the mid-upper should be enough to let the shoe hug your foot without the feeling of being gripped and just slack enough to allow some movement.
Q. Are Vans Slip-ons unisex?
A. Although Vans stores arrange their slip ons according to gender, it doesn’t matter if you’re a girl, boy, man, or woman to wear slip-ons. Vans slip-on sneakers are bold and confident, so if that’s the kind of footwear you like, go for it.
Q. Why did my Vans turn yellow?
A. White shoes can turn yellow due to oxidation, which occurs if you leave them out in the sun after wash. Sweat and dirt can also be the cause.
Q. Can you put Vans in the washing machine?
A. Vans does not recommend it because they could get damaged, even if you put them in a pillowcase.
Q. Should I bleach my Vans shoes?
A. Don’t. The chemicals on the bleach can turn your shoes yellow. Instead, use white vinegar, lemon juice, rubbing alcohol, or acetone. Apply the solution using an old toothbrush, and wipe with a clean damp cloth when you are done. You can also use toothpaste, but it might not be as effective as other methods.
