The Blog-Kid shoes













I would have loved being a bit older during the 90s to have been able to live that creative club culture, where club-kids and skaters danced to house music and hip-hop. Flyers weren’t just info material but real art pieces, and there were no rules wardrobe wise, it was only forbidden to be discrete. Who wouldn’t swap for Macaulay Culkin after seeing Party Monster? That was one of my inspirations when every Sunday evening in London we were getting ready for Family, Boombox or Ponystep, parties that recovered the club-kid essence from  the 90s. That’s why, with these customized Vans, I’m trying to do my own personal homage to that time. I’m going to wear them till they fall off, I love them!

Cuánto me hubiera gustado haber sido un poco mayor en los 90 para haber vivido aquella creativa cultura de club, donde club-kids y skeaters bailaban en comunión house y hip-hop. Los flyers no eran meros panfletos informativos sino verdaderas obras de arte, y no había normas a la hora de vestir mientras uno no pasara desapercibido. Quien no ha querido ser Macaulay Culkin despues de haber visto Party Monster?  Yo levantaba la mano a esta pregunta cada vez que llegaba el domingo en Londres y nos vestíamos para ir a Family, Boombox o los comienzos de Ponystep, que recuperaban el espíritu club-kid de los 90. Y bueno, con estos Vans customizados quiero hacer mi homenaje personal a aquella época, me los voy a poner hasta reventarlos, me encantan!

Yo en los noventa era una enana que apenas sabía andar... pero en mi opinión, ha sido una de las mejores décadas de la moda!
Me encanta que se vean los calcetines entre las vans y el pantalón :)

The decision that parents and guardians face each year concerning what to buy their kids in the way of shoes is influenced by several factors. Many times the need for practicality takes a precedence over choosing the most trendy shoes. Yet this problem doesn't always have to deter kids from staying in style, or parents and guardians from saving some money in the long run.

Great shoes, looks very nice. thanks

As Vans footwear were originally made for skaters they are made to be durable and strong that can sustain good grip on the floor. The soles of shoes are made from high quality rubber material and come with the lining.

Really like those Vans, where did you get them?
