Staring at my old white Authentic Lo Pros, I wondered what I could do to make them one-of-a-kind. They were my first ever pair of Vans (5 years old!) and they’ve been through quite a bit. I came up with the idea of dip-dyeing them: I’ve never seen it on shoes, although it is a major trend for clothes. This is by far my favorite DIY yet.
Here’s what you’ll need: A pack of fabric dye in your favorite color, your trusty white Vans, rubber or latex gloves, a bucket, boiled water, and a large spoon.
1. Boil enough water to fill the bucket so half of your shoes can soak in it. Take your project outside and read the dye directions (Some dyes say putting salt in the water will better the results).
2. Put on your gloves, pour the dye into the water and stir until dissolved.
3. Start dip-dyeing! Place your Vans in the dye (take the laces out and lift up the tongues!), and let it soak. You can try dyeing the heel or the toe, whichever you prefer! If you don’t want a defined line as to where the dye starts, move the shoe up and down a little so it’s not at the same position the entire time. Keep it in the dye for about 15 minutes each shoe.
4. Take your shoes out, and lay out to dry for a few minutes. Then rinse your Vans with a hose or in the sink until the water runs clear.
5. Let them dry overnight, lace up, and you got your dip-dyed Vans!-alyson
Hey there, I haven’t had a chance to formally introduce myself yet. I’m Niki and I’m the social media intern here at Vans. I’m currently planning for a trip to San Francisco and I thought I’d share a few outfits that I plan to roam around the beautiful Bay in.
Weather reports say it’s going to bright and sunny, so I’ve decided to forgo my heavy jackets for lighter knits and sweaters and throw in a basic black mid-low dress and my adorable Vans Back-Up Woven Denim Top. I can’t fail to mention my new favorite leather accessory either, the Breakers Backpack (shown at top) from the Vans Spring line.
When I think of San Francisco, the first thing that comes to mind is its’ authenticity. Despites changing times, the city has always stayed true to its origins, so what better way to honor that than bringing along my favorite Classics for the journey: my blue authentic lo pros and white authentics. –niki
The Authentic Lo Pro Floral in Coriander/True White is one of my favorite prints this season AND it just gave me the perfect last minute Halloween costume idea. See y'all out there, I’ll be wearing the flower crown.
