Who should NOT buy

Don't buy the Vans Slip-On if you prefer wearing sneakers without socks. This kick has insufficient ventilation that may give you sweaty or, worse, stinky feet.

For a nicely-ventilated slip-on sneaker experience, you may check out the Vans Old Skool.

Vans Slip-On off the wall

It requires little to no effort to put on

The Vans Slip-On uses garters on both sides to keep the feet secure and in place all the time. Its slip-on design is able to fulfil the role of a kick that can be worn without the fuss of shoelaces in every aspect.

Comfort is guaranteed

Despite its minimal design, this Vans sneaker offered us a reliable cosiness throughout the day.

Snug and stiff at first

But you have to give it some time to reveal its potential. At first, this kick feels a bit stiff and snug but eventually breaks in after the first few uses. Hence, if you have a chance to check them out in a local store, try them with and without socks.

It has a distinct, never-goes-out-of-style vibe

Reigning alongside the Vans Old Skool and Vans Sk8-Hi, this sneaker's design is one of the most iconic and most recognisable in the world of footwear. 

Aesthetic-wise, we find its simple minimal design to be stylish and classic-looking. The Slip-On has become the favourite go-to for generations, skaters and enthusiasts alike, and is rightfully a part of the Vans Classic roster.

Vans Slip-on had become one of the most replicated silhouettes in shoe history

The Vans Slip-On is available in a seemingly unending amount of colorways, prints, and materials, offering something for every consumer type. Its endless array of design options has represented a specific time and place and will remain timeless in decades to come – a mark of a true classic.

Watch out for sweaty feet!

While this kick is made with canvas, we did not get away from developing clammy feet. Thus, we highly recommend donning socks in these to avoid this shabby episode.
