First off, I'm not typically someone who drops everything to buy sneakers. Although I appreciate a good pair, I like to keep my shoe collection diverse and usually only buy a few pairs of sneakers a year. That said, I am someone who drops everything to buy something affordable and cool that I know will quickly sell out. And that's exactly what I did yesterday morning when I did my routine check of Need Supply's new arrivals. Among them was a pair of $80 Vans Era sneakers that I added to my cart immediately.
These aren't just any white sneakers. This pair is made of leather and features calf-hair leopard-print accents. They're the perfect sneakers to start wearing now and into fall, as leopard-print is a huge trend at the moment. Plus, the animal print makes them more appropriate for fall than a pair of plain white kicks, and I've already thought of many outfits to wear them with during both seasons. (Bonus: I did some review research of the Vans Era sneakers and the praise is high across the board.)
