A hybrid slip-on/boat shoe, you get the best of both worlds with the Vans Lacey. Although I haven't yet tried them on, they look super-comfortable like most Vans. The easy-on and off is always a big attraction and I like that if I need more security, the wrap-around laces can be tightened up with a quick pull—for outrunning the fuzz or what have you. They're based on a vintage Vans model and come in a few different colorways. I like the way the black-on-black has an understated appeal that subtly plays-up the offbeat detail.
The Black Vans Lacey is available at Beams for ¥8,190 or check your local retailer.
