“Washed Stripe” Vans, The Latest Installment in Hipster Culture

If you’re reading this blog then you’ve probably noticed the wave of hipster influence in the fashion world for about the past year or so. One of the places credited with spreading the hipster look was tumblr. Now the hipster look is just about everywhere even on people who far from represent hipster culture.

So if those who don’t truly have a clue what hipster culture is it’s only fitting that Vans a brand that has embodied rebellion since 1966 should get a piece of the hipster pie too.

For their S/S 2012 collection Vans will be offering a Lo Pro model called “Washed Stripe”. The upper is made of faded denim and the sole is Vans classic vulcanized rubber. The “Washed Stripe” model is a throwback and it’s in stores now!

P.S. I might have to add these to my collection right between my Turquoise ones and my Leopard ones.

    where can I buy these?

    • Select Vans stores only. They’re not online at all. If you live in the DMV area I would assume the Vans store at Tysons would most likely have them. I intend to check there within the coming weeks. If I find them I’ll definitely post about it
