Meet Sophie from Vans

As I was flipping through the pages of my March issue of Teen Vogue, I couldn't help but do a double take on this shoe from Vans:



This was inspired by saddle shoes and I think this is the two-tone shoe that Raissa referred to in my J Crew brogues post! The Vans ad showed a girl wearing this with a summer dress but it's so versatile that it will go with just about anything!

Made with all leather uppers, it has the signature Vans checkerboard as lining. It's a real feminine saddle shoe with that slim wedge heel. I was actually pleasantly surprised that Vans would have something "delicate". But as with all Vans shoes, this is a practical buy because it has slip-proof micro-waffle rubber outsoles. It retails for $55.

Hmmm, how about a modern take on a poodle skirt?
