In the 80's Vans were the hottest shoe around, for the boys & girls. The iconic black+white checkered slip-on epitomized skater chic. Only we didn't use (or know) the word "chic" and there was nothing actually chic about the skater look. But it was cool.
So guess what...not only are the exact checkered Vans available once again, but that style has spawned a whole host of other slip-ons that I'm deeming them THE casual SHOE for Spring/Summer. I've talked before about the casual/chic vibe that pairs sneakers with dressier items & fabrics, but the greatest thing about these slip-on sneaks is many of them are pony hair so they're like a hybrid of a flat & a sneaker. They're already a little more dressed up than a basic sneak, plus without the ties they read a bit more polished. You need some. You'll wear them with jeans, shorts, sundresses, leggings, you name it. I already ordered a pair that sadly were returned as they were a little small, but I'm now forced to decide among too many awesome options. Nordstrom has a whole category to choose from!

I'll be telling you about a couple of other shoe styles you need to have on your radar this year, but this is by far the best and MUST HAVE. Whether you're a weekend warrior or a stay at home mom, everyone will find a ton of use out of a chic sneaker they can wear to the market, the mall, the park, or .... lets get real, for all day, everyday.
