Since about 6th grade I have always kept a pair of Vans red and white classic slip-ons in my shoe arsenal. I also have a few pairs of classic lace-ups and occasionally pine for a pair their flats, but I haven’t indulged in the shoes of my youth for many years now. That all may change…I found these beauties, called the Sophie, on Need Supply Co. and I’m as obsessed as my thirteen year-old self was with the slip-ons. They’re quite pretty and made by Vans…my vintage shoe-wearing feet can only dream about that type of comfort in a flat. I also have a thing for saddle shoes, they’re just so charming.
