Tip Toein' In My Slip On Vans

I don't think I've ever really been one for sneakers before...unless I'm heading to the gym or wearing workout clothes.  

However, last week while my family was in town, my mom, sister, and I went over to the J. Crew Clearance Center in Lynchburg.  I've always found some of the best deals there, so I was eager to see what we would dig out that day.  I was on the search from some new tops, and a pair or two of Minnie pants if they had my size.  (I always get my minnie pants from the clearance store because you can usually get them for $12-$15!  They're my favorite type of pants, so I always try to snag a pair so I can retire an older, worn out pair.)  

While perusing through the shoe section of the clearance center (and trust me, it's like J. Crew Shoe Mecca.  I was seriously dying....and I may or may not have picked up four pairs of shoes for less than $75), I found this pair of metallic Van slip on sneakers. 

 I don't know what possessed me to try them on, but I did, and I fell in love.  They're seriously the most comfortable shoes (like maybe more comfortable than my Aasics running shoes?), and they actually look cute!  Plus, the price was right.  They were marked $35, but if you bought six or more items, you got an additional 40% off your total.  So these Vans ended up costing only $21!  I also picked up that white top, and that only cost $12!

What do you think of J. Crew's collaboration with Vans?



  1. I'm not really a Vans person (which probably has more to do with my association of them with a certain ex who shall not be named), but those are pretty.

  2. Those are so sporty! I love the lace up, stonewash vans j.crew had last year, I think.

  3. Love this look! I would never see myself as the type of person to be wearing vans but after this post I might have to go try that pair on!

  4. I go to the Asheville Clearance center every few months and LOVE sifting through everything! I just got a fabulous pair of J. Crew Martina suede wedges in a gorgeous purple for $30!! You should post your "hauls" each time you go to the clearance store--I love it!
