The reason I like Vans is because they come in so many different colors and styles you can have a few pairs of them and they can all be different. I like these Old Skool Vans here because they are made mostly of rip-stop material. If you don't know what rip-stop is its a tough but lightweight material that works well on shoes. The shoe is finished off with a nice suede in the front and in the back heel as well. Along with its classic vulcanized rubber outsole these make for a nice pair of Vans which are available at Atlas.
