Customization in sneakers is a big topic that often gets mixed opinions. While we touched on the classics vs. customs debate earlier this summer, I think we can all get behind a temporary custom option. Vans’ latest special edition sneaker provides just that. The Sidestripe V Old Skool lets you customize your kicks without the commitment. Reminiscent of the Nike Air Max 1-100, the sneaker features a velcro sidestripe, giving you two looks in one.

This new customizable Old Skool features a canvas upper dressed in all black with contrasting white stitching. The shoe sits atop a white midsole and that classic gum colored waffle outsole. The standout elements that complete these kicks are the velcro sidestripes. The black checkerboard stripe lifts to reveal a pink stripe underneath. Take a look at the versatile Sidestripe V Old Skool below!

I love seeing brands try new things and experimenting with different design elements. This velcro patch element lets you have a little creative moment with your kicks and I’m so here for it. If you’re feeling this versatile sneaker, you can SHOP THE SNEAKS below for $65 USD.
