Ever the dress-shoe-as-sneakers person, I thought I’d turn the tables this holiday season and wear something colorful, skater-esque, and decidedly casual on Christmas day. I dug up a pair of Vans Old Skools in bright red, from the old old days when I was still in college. It was inevitable—the LN-CC look book, Pelayo Diaz, and that dashing Japanese gentleman walking around the Lower East Side in head-to-toe boiled black wool Comme des Garçons and Batali-esque orange Chucks—capping off a quirky “fashion” outfit with casual, classic sneakers was something I had to try out myself.

I thought my new vintage lion-man head pin was very Philip Crangi.
