Sneakers, Skateboard Shoes & Cool Footwear

Sneakers and skateboard shoes bearing the name of Vans Shoes are footwear commonly associated with skate parks, skateboarding and the competitors and followers of this exciting sport. However, that doesn't mean these excellent quality sneakers and skateboard shoes should only be worn by a certain group of people. The many women's and men's Vans Shoes slip easily past that boundary and are equally as welcome on the feet of anyone who chooses to wear them! This blog encompasses the good feeling that wearing these great, stylish sneakers brings to people, so if you can handle the author's quirky writing style, off the wall quips and odd turns of phrase, then it will certainly entertain you too!

Why Choose Van Shoes?

Why choose Van Shoes over other makes of casual shoes? Well the question "why choose Van Shoes" leads us nicely on from our last post Wear Van Shoes Where?, where I pointed out the origins of Van Shoes from their humble beginnings in the first store that was empty save for three demo pairs of Van Shoes and a shop full of racks that only had empty boxes in them!

Why Choose Van Shoes?

So now let's come up to date by posing the question, "Why Choose Van Shoes" and looking for the straight answer. Not the answer you'd expect to find on a site that sold them and were simply giving you a sales pitch, because that would just lead you to think that you were being asked Why Choose Van Shoes just so they can give you your reason and make you believe you thought of it. So here, I'm not going to tell you why choose Van Shoes at all, I'm going to let you decide that for yourself but just give you some reasons other people might why choose Van Shoes over other brands.

Well, the reason you'd why choose Van Shoes is probably down to personal choice as being the most important factor of why choose Van Shoes. Personal choice is really the main reason you do anything, although many people are easily influenced by advertisers and their clever tactics.

Like you could be shown a really great picture of one of the Van Shoes range and it might be enhanced to make the van shoe look better than it is in real life. Just like the fast food chains like McDonalds show you a picture of a Big Mac that looks really BIG and juicy and packed full of great stuff so you really want to go eat one right now, but when you go to your local McDonalds the burger you get is flat and limp and greasy and tasteless apart from all the mustard and shite they put on it so you feel ripped off except you never say anything. Right?

Same deal goes for why choose Van Shoes or any other brand say Nike or Reebok or Addidas they all look really great in the picture and they make you reaally want to go buy a pair right now. But when you get to the store and try them on they are clean and smell fresh and you don't see the price tag until its too late. You're hooked and you've tried them on and you want them so bad you'll pay the price cause you can't face walking out of that store empty handed. Right?

So why choose Van Shoes its got nothing to do with price or quality or materials, its how well the advertiser made you want that pair of Van Shoes more than you want a pair of Nikes or whatever.

Why choose Van Shoes?

Because the advertisers tell you they're the cool shoes to have and all your friends are wearing them and you don't want to be the odd one out. That's why choose Van Shoes!

Wear Van Shoes Where?

Following on from my last post about wear Van Shoes, Van Shoes New In Shop, (excluding the Christmas message of course) I'll take a break from displaying individual Van Shoes models and just divert you attention to a new section I just added to this Van Shoes blog:

About Vans Shoes

It's a little snippet of the history of Van Shoes and how the company came about. What's interesting is that teh creators of Van shoes actually opened their first store with no actual stock inside - that's right, not a single Van Shoes to be seen on any of the racks. Just empty boxes!

Wear Van Shoes, Where?

Can you imagine people walking into the store wanting to wear Van Shoes, Where are they? they'd ask! They'd be spending a few minutes looking around before they realized they were looking at nothing but empty boxes! Ha, not a Vans Shoe in sight, just empty boxes all neatly stacked up on the racks full not of Van Shoes, but fresh air!

Wear Van Shoes? Where? I wonder how they explained THAT away!

Van Shoes have come a long way from those humble beginnings in an empty store with just a couple of samples and nothing else for their customers. Of course nowadays you can get many different versions of the popular Van Shoes in different ranges, colours sizes etc. And the distribution is worldwide, with even Amazon selling them online!

So if you were in any doubt as to the popualrity of Van Shoes, you won't be any more after you read this.

Unless we are asked nicely!

Here at Van Shoes, we'll follow on from our last post entitled: Vans Shoes Limited Edition, where we outlined the Vans Shoes Limited Edition range, today we'll take a look at the Custom Shoes range on Vans Shoes.

We wanted to take images direct from the official Vans Shoes website as we hope they won't mind the additional free exposure of their van shoes ranges, but just recently we got taken off the Google index and I can only assume someone didn't like us doin' that, so the images and the links have been removed.

Custom Slip-on

Custom Old Skool

That's all we can find for the items in this Vans Shoes range at the van shoes website at the present. Having said that, if you go to the Vans Shoes official website for yourself and look for yourself, you'll see that there are several different colour options for each of the van shoes in that range. We just thought it'd be nice to show you the pictures here to give you a good idea what they look like before you decide you'd like to have a closer look at Vans Shoes.

In future posts we'll be bringing you more information about the benefits of purchasing a pair of Vans Shoes for yourself as we think they are just great! Are we biased? You bet!

The special Vans Shoes is the topic and following on from my first ever post right here in this little old blog that got started back then entitled: Van Shoes, it's time to give you a write-up about what exactly are Vans Shoes Of course you might be wonderin' why I call this little blog "Van Shoes" without the "s" as they're also albeit incorrectly known as.

Yep, you might have noticed that funny thing the name of this blog is actually Van Shoes, but you know that's only cause more people are searchin' on the exact term Van Shoes in the Google machine than they does for the special Vans Shoes, so I wanted this little old blog here to get noticed by more people! Well, that's the reason, my friend! I said I was gonna tell ya, and I told ya!

Well lets start talking in here about the important stuff to do with with the range of the Vans Shoes and what they got.

Well first up what I want to talk about right here is vegan shoes. Vegan Shoes are exactly what they say they are - vegan friendly vans shoes. That's without animal products in the manufacture for all those of you what don't know what that's about. So the vegan van shoes range is surprisingly extensive you know with some great names such like "Old Skool" and "Rise Against Old Skool" which I think is pretty cool, specially if you still at school and all!

Then there's "Geoff Rowley Squares" and "Geoff Rowley XL3 for Men" and "Geoff Rowley XL3 for Boys" and "Geoff Rowley Classic for Men" and "Geoff Rowley Classic for Boys" man, that's a lot of Geoff Rowley classic vegan, men must like his name on their shoes in the names there and oh yeah for you heavy metal fans out there who must be seen with the essential heavy metal stuff theres Vans Shoes Motorhead designed styles like the "Geoff Rowley Motorhead Edition" and "Geoff Rowley Squares Motorhead Edition". Now That's a pretty cool range of limited edition vans shoes especially that Vans Rowley Motorhead... Man, Vans shoes Motorhead headbangers - can you believe that for a vegan shoe? How ultra cool is that!

These are all the very special limited edition Vans Shoes all being a part in the very special vegan range that are turning to be ultra-popular-a-rama oh yeah!

So that's a good start - there are more ranges of Vans Shoes to choose from, such as the limited edition vans shoes that I didn't mention right here in this little old post here, not to mention a whole host of other different types, styles and designs. And in later posts I'll be telling you just what they are too!

Then I be going into much more details about the many different ranges of Vans Shoes that you can be wearing on your feet and what their strengths and weaknesses are, cause I like the sound of that, oh yeah.
