Vans are definitely a new trend I’m starting to see everywhere.  School, the mall, the movie theater, the park, no matter where I go it seems tons of girls and guys have caught on to the trend!  You can find Vans almost anywhere such as Journey’s, JC Penny, Pacsun, Zumiez, etc…  The coolest thing about them is that people have found out how to make their own designs with these shoes!

  • Galaxy Vans.  Galaxy Vans are super easy and fun to make!  It also prChelsea Crockett - Galaxy Vansovides an activity for you and your friends to get together and create!  All there is to it is purchasing a pair of plain navy or black Vans, pink, blue, and purple fabric paint, and a sponge for applying your paint.  Dip your sponge in the blue paint and apply all over your shoes!  This is going to be the color you put most on your shoes.  Then to get a more “galaxy” look, add purple and a little pink on the shoes as well, overlapping the blue.  After that, take a small paint brush and apply tiny white dots around your shoes in place of the “stars.”  You can even attempt trying to paint actual stars, whatever you’re able to!
  • Create Your Own.  This one is much easier.  Purchase a simple pair of white vans and decorate them however you desire.  Color, paint, or draw whatever you want!  Add polka dots, stripes, zig zags, whatever suits you.

I can’t wait to see how all of yours turn out!   Drop me a comment and let me know!  Links to get a pair to start your creation are below!

Good luck!
