The past decade has seen many fashion girl sneaker phases. There were our beloved white Adidas Stan Smiths that were worn until the soles fell apart, a parade of semi-functional Nikes hoarded more for their exclusive prints and color ways than for actual use at the gym, and our minimal, low-top Converse that kickstarted the idea of wearing sneakers with a dress. But in the last few years, a new contender, and unexpected California skater bro brand, has snuck its way into our hearts.
For a sneaker that has only a handful of major silhouettes, Vans has really capitalized on knowing just what fashion girls want. Instead of creating one classic white style we're all wearing, it's honed in on designing an endless amount of unique customizable options and pre-made choices within a few recognizable cuts. And that method is exactly why we can't own just one pair.
Ahead, we've rounded up 16 of our favorite styles that are currently available. Whether you're a Vault by Vans girl or stick with the latest leather slip-ons, you'll be surprised at just how good all these sneakers look.
