What are the most comfortable slip-on sneakers?
The most comfortable slip-on sneakers are designed around the whole foot, not just the upper. Look for a pair that has a decent sole – they’re sneakers, not slippers. Elastication should be firm but flexible. Remember, comfort reveals itself when you’re walking, not sitting in the shoe store.
Vans have an advantage when it comes to slip-on comfort – we’ve been making them for more than 40 years. We’ve picked up what works, whether you’re skating, hanging out or sampling the local bars. You should be able to wear them all day and all night without feeling like you’re making an effort to keep them on. It’s all down to a good fit, quality materials and elastic panels that grip in exactly the right places.
Are vans slip-ons unisex?
Vans slip-on sneakers are bold and confident, so if that’s the kind of footwear you like, it doesn’t matter if you’re a girl, boy, man or woman. Worn with the right trousers, jeans, shorts or a skirt, you just get to show them off and be yourself – whoever you are.
You can search the range of slip-on sneakers by sex if you like – we only arrange them like that to make it easier for men and women to quickly find the ones that are most popular with their own sex. We’ve found guys tend to go for darker colours and chequerboard, whereas women seem to prefer to push the boat out a bit. But look closely at both collections, and you’ll see they’re more or less the same.
