I have always been a huge fan of trainers, so when I seen the Vans Ultra Range I was instantly drawn to them. After the recent rage over the Old Skool Vans I wanted to join the trend but whilst having something a bit different, hence my choice for the ultra range.
After doing a bit of research online (yes I am a bit of a geek) I decided on a black pair as I thought these would be easily matched with more items in my wardrobe than a pair of blue or grey ones. I personally think the black ones are the best colour as they show off the vans logo and look great styled with a pair of skinny black jeans or even some skinny joggers- perfect for that sleek gym look.
I am a big fan of the vans old skool range, I think that they look great and I often use them as a statement item to finish off the outfit. I think they are great value too at £75, considering a pair of Adidas NMD’s will set you back between £100-£150 and I think the Vans are just as stylish.
These shoes are extremely comfortable, I work in an office where I am constantly walking around so these shoes have been great to wear for both work and leisure. They are much more supportive than the traditional old skool range. The ultra range has a great cushion on the bottom of the trainer which helps, you could even run in these shoes or use them for a sport as they are very supportive.
I would definitely recommend these trainers they are very comfortable and like I mentioned, good value at £75. I bought mine from Schuh, the service was great and I got a £10 off voucher for another pair of shoes- something useful to know if you’re planning to invest in a few pairs of shoes.
