@Parker_hobbs Haha. Sure!
A bit nicer than my custom slip-ons... sole feels somehow just a bit more padded (but could be they just haven't compressed from wear yet) and the full black insides are classy. Wanted to get the rust colorway based on the photos on Vans' site but opted for blue tie-dye after googling pics (rust colors seemed very inconsistent and some pairs just looked like vomit, not that that is always bad, maybe good for punk lol). As I wanted a new pair of slips for summer, the pool, and breezing through airport security, the blues have it... tropical waters and white sands and, as others have said, doesn't look like usual tie-dye. As tie-dye is luck of the draw, I was a bit worried I'd get a bit of a mismatched pair colorwise. But while one vamp is a bit darker than the other, they're not too dissimilar. Just buyer beware as I don't think Vans makes any effort to match them up.
