Okay, so before I went and fell in love with Vans, I had never really wore anything fashionable. I just wore what I felt comfortable in, which has always been jeans, T-shirts and some trainers. Then, when I bought some chinos, I wanted a nice new pair of shoes to go with them, and after seeing everyone else wearing these Vans, I thought I would give them a try, see if I like them. I know they're supposed to be skate shoes, and I don't skate, but I thought that they looked really nice, and so many other people were wearing them anyway that didn't really look like skaters, so I thought I would buy some myself!
So, I journeyed into the town center to buy myself a pair... And there was just so many to choose from! I was so confused by what the guy trying to help me was saying, he was just bombarding me with choices! anyway, I thought I would buy a pair of plain and simple, all blue (my favourite colour), Vans Eras. When I tried them on, I was just taken back by how comfortable they were, even though I was a little disappointed that they were going to cost me £45. However, for good looking, comfortable, fashionable shoes, I was willing to pay that much.
To be honest, I don't really know what more I can say about these shoes. They are both comfortable and stylish, and the colour blue that I got was very nice. Also, the large white part at the bottom of the shoe around the edges is very handy, because it is so easy to clean/wipe things off like mud etc. so it's hard for the shoes to get properly dirty, but they do begin to fade and lose their bright whiteness a little too quickly for my liking, but it is a helpful thing to not have to sit there scrubbing your shoes because they got muddy the day before, instead you can just use a wet cloth or something to wipe the white part clean very easily.
So anyway, off the product I have and onto Eras in general. I think that all of the Vans Eras shoes are very cool. I now own 3 pairs (setting me back over £100) that I really like. My first pair (that I've had for a few months now) are starting to get a little tatty. The laces are going grey and I just don't clean them too often, but I could soon fix them up to look almost new again in no time if I wanted, which is the great thing about Vans Eras! Anyway, Eras come in many different colours and (obviously) sizes. And, if there wasn't already too many colours to choose from, there is also multi-coloured ones too! They look very nice and, when I have the money, I'll probably buy some like that! Also, the fact that they're unisex is great too, means me and my girlfriend can wear each others (lol)!
In conclusion, would most definitely recommend these shoes. They have everything you want in a shoe (unless you're hiking or something) and I have just fallen in love with them, as will you when you try them! The only set back for these shoes is the price! Some of them are over £50 and this really is a little excessive!
Summary: Great shoes, just a shame that they cost so much :(
