Exactly. Leather slip ons like that make me think 'trying too hard'. Otoh, if you're going to get velvet slippers...

Anyone know how Julius run? I've been wanting to pick up some nice cargos from them but I've seen measurements kinda all over the place on rakuten.

Cut off the branding and it'll be alright.

i don't really like Vans, actually

To me, they're like the new 'CONVERSE Chuck Taylors" (and being slowly replaced by New Balance in the 'mainstream' fashion) : EVERYBODY has at least one pair. I see like 100 people with vans everyday (from the hipsters to hip hop fans) and I still don't get the appeal... I don't find them particularly beautiful (and the color/pattern mix is sometimes... :uhoh:) and canvas sneakers (especially worn sockless) always makes me think of stinky feet :hide: .

I can understand SOME people find them genuinely beautiful, comfy, etc... (hey we have different tastes and appreciation of things) But to me, the majority of them is just following the trend of "lamestream" hipsterism / rappers with skinny jeans + vans (Lil Wayne). again, it's just my opinion.

To me, that seems like a strange way of looking at them - they don't seem particularly 'trendy' in my experience, and most people that I know wear them by default - they're cheap shoes that you can pretty much find anywhere.

hah, that's exactly what i actually mean by labelling them the "new chuck taylors" because it's more like a "default" choice for shoes as they're not too complicated to insert in a fit. and people wear them with basically everything (saw this dude the other day with a navy suit and grey Vans!).

By 'trendy', l meant "what-is-hot-right-now". maybe it's a whole different thing in th US, but here in France, Vans were almost worn exclusively by skaters 3 years ago or so. But now they're evrywhere lol. EVERYWHERE. just like Chucks back in the day (especially after the Nirvana/grunge scene reached the mainstream).

I think they don't look good with socks (think Tyler The Creator or Steve Urkle), they look decent worn sockless with shorts or chinos but again I envision stinky feet with canvas sneakers :mad:

(yeah i have a fixation with that, not sure why lol).

and I definitly agree with Dan138zig : They DO look juvenile. Seeing them on people in their 30s and 40s (and even some 20ers) just looks weird to me.  they have something really adolescent /teenagey about them (at least to me)
