Remember Your First Vans?
- I remember the first time I saw a pair of Vans. I was in a shopping mall in Atlanta, Georgia in the early 80’s on a baseball team trip. There they were in the window, red, black, and white checkered, glorious, rebellious Vans. I spent every dime I had that day, and I put them on immediately.
Not too long after my very wise purchase, the movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High came to theaters. What do you know, Spicoli and I had the same stye.
- I recently customized some old school Vans to match my painted hat.
With memories of my first checkered Vans firmly rooted in my mind, I took paint to canvas, and I silenced the mechanism.They are not loud like my checkered pair, but they are groovy. I’ve been bright before, but I’m going gray for awhile.
It feels good, and so do my Vans.
