Turn On Your Brights: 12 Bold Vans Sneakers For The Spicoli In You

With all due respect to our Chucks and Docs, the footwear that really ruled our high school years was a beat-up pair of Vans Old Skools. We may not get down to the skate park too much these days (let's be real, we never quite got the hang of those kick flips, anyway), but we're still way into Vans' classic, laid-back California cool — because who doesn't secretly want to be Jeff Spicoli?
These days, of course, we're rocking our Authentics and Lo-Pros in a rainbow of colors besides good ol' black-and-white check. Click on for the 12 most colorful-cool Vans sneakers. They probably won't help us land any ollies anytime soon, but hey, a girl's high school dreams can live, right?
