I know it happens to me all the time.
But, if you're a fan of Vans shoes, or just old-school style sneakers, now you can have some fun by building a pair of Vans Customs.
Choose Your Shoe StyleCurrently, you can either customize a pair of Vans "Old Skool" sneakers, or a pair of classic Vans slip-ons.
Design Your ShoesUsing your web browser, you select different sections of each shoe, and choose the colors or patterns of materials you want for each shoe part. From the outer soles to the laces and tongues, you can have a different style on each part if you choose.
When You've Finished Your MasterpieceYou can choose to add the item to your shopping cart, send your design to a friend, or start all over again.
Pricing and ShippingFor the designs I made, the slip-ons were $50.00 (U.S) and the Old Skools were $60.00. Allow three to five weeks for shipping.
