VansVault2 Vans Vault Spectator Shoes

Berkley, California’s Bows & Arrows boutique has some very cute new arrivals from Vans Vault line, “Spectator” shoes for the ladies. How perfect with a pair of denim cut-offs or a short skirt or dress? I’m thinking extremely. A blue pair after the flip.

Vans Showroom Visit

Vans2 Vans Showroom Visit

Vans was in New York last week and while I didn’t have it in me to battle the line for the party, I was able to stop by the showroom earlier that day. And let me tell you, Vans has a LOT planned for the ladies in 2010, all sorts of juicy collabos with some very high profile streetwear designers. I’m sure you can imagine. I wasn’t allowed to photograph or blog about any of it, but I did take a shot of category manager, Ashley Moltz, who was wearing the Hellz Bellz/Vans collabo kicks (they look even flyer on the foot) and some new Vans outerwear. (And you can catch a peek at some of the goodies, which are right behind her!)

Vans X Hellz Bellz Sneakers: Hell Yes!!

VansHellzBellzE Vans X Hellz Bellz Sneakers: Hell Yes!!

Vans collaborating with Hellz Bellz is a match made in heaven and further evidence that Vans is not playing around in its quest to make its ladies product stand alone. The two styles shown here, the Sophie on the left and the Hadley on the right, will be released in February. The styling on the two shoes reflects Hellz Bellz designer Lanie Barcena’s own dichotomous take on fashion, which she describes as “tomboy chic” and “edgy feminine.” We swoon because that is the very lane we here at HighSnobette feel most at home in.

Both styles will be available at Karmaloop and Wish

A couple more shots exclusive to HighSnobette after the flip. (Wait ’til you see the zipper on the hightops! You’re gonna pass.right.out!)

Vans Saddle Shoes!

VansSaddle1 Vans Saddle Shoes!

Vans rep Maria sent me images of these oxford shoes, aka the Sophie, and I was immediately smitten. I’ve been less-than-crazy about the menwear-inspired oxford trend, but the saddle shoe pattern combined with the wedge heel softens  the masculine edge of the design and transforms them into a shoe that’s ultra-charming and meets my girly-girl minimum requirements.

If you aren’t a fiend for white shoes like I am, there are a couple more solid-colored styles after the flip, including one featuring the famous Vans’ check. Looks for these to retail Spring 2010.

Vans Luxe Collection: Lesley

Vans Luxe Collection: Aleeda

Vans is freshening up its Classics [REWIND!!! I'm told by excellent rep for Vans, Maria Boshetti, that these are  NOT Classics; they're part of the Luxe line, aka, the women's version of Vault, Van's premium line for men, which...I did not know that!] for ladies for Spring 2010 with a richly-colored mix made extra special via perforated leather. We like this one, called the Aleeda the best, but there are three more on the other side that are pretty darn cute, too!

Vans: Blk Patent w/ PINK Laces!!

05 January 2009, 17.56 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Skateboarding, Sneakers | 1 comment »

Got these Vans images a minute ago, but have beeing lazing out like a Lays Potato chip so whatever. Hopefully the New Year will wash away my crappy attitude where posting on HS is concerned. Anway…..these are cute, right? I know I’m a sucker for pink (scratch that, due to tech difficulties, I had to use the ones with purple laces but the pink are on the other side) and all, but it’s the patent that makes these next level.

This shoe is part of the Patent Collection. There are many more on the other side, including the same shoes in white. I’m assuming the white ones are patent, too, but if so, the shine isn’t showing up in the image.

Vans X Bad Brains Chukkas: For all my 420 Ladies!

03 December 2008, 20.56 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Music, Shoes, Skateboarding, Sneakers | No comments »

Vans has done a boatload of collabos this year, but I think I like this one the best so far. Not just cuz the Bad Brains were an amazing band that never got its due propers, but also cuz they’re a good fit with Vans. Makes sense somehow.

Other side: more tees and three pairs of shoes, including those Chukkas!

 It’s feeling like fall in NYC, isn’t it?? I’ve been feeling the chill in the air and thinking, "Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!! Not yet!! I’m not ready for summer to be over!" But even if I’m not, Vans is and they’ve got you covered for Haloween if you’re one of those types that likes to coordinate:
