vans girls boston


Vans painted the city of Boston red last Friday as we celebrated the opening of the DQM General store. The babes came out to play in their best Vans and dug the tunes of California skater / rad musician Ray Barbee. Along with meeting some fellow Sk8-Hi obsessors, I even had a chance to see some shoes that I just HAVE to cop sooner than later! If you’re in the Boston area, be sure to check out the new DQM General store, my new favorite thing about this city. -brittany


Boston, you might have been a freezing-icy-rainy-slushy-snowy and all things in between mess this week but your ladies still showed up to our House of Vans pop up looking on point. While us California babes were tempted to wear sleeping bags to the shows, you guys showed us how the cold weather wear is done. Nice work.

One of my favorite things to wear is a great baby-doll dress and a pair of killer Sk8-His. The juxtaposition of girly meets tomboy-chic is just way too perfect! It’s a bummer that it’s about to be freezing cold soon…I’m sure going to miss rocking a good mini dress. -brittany

After a visit to the DQM General Boston store, I was IMMEDIATELY struck with the urge to buy every single shoe in sight. Now, I know I’m not alone when I say this, but I would much rather take a pair of really amazing Sk8-Hi’s over designer heels ANY day. Am I right? I fell head-over-heels with these rad Suede Sk8-Hi’s in Port Royale, and have refused to take them off! They literally go with everything, including my favorite vintage jumper! Grab yourself a pair, and be prepared to be obsessed! -brittany
