Rare Items: 1) Vans Wellesley Hiker Boots

The first item on the list of rare items I would rather enjoy talking about are the Vans Wellesley Hiker Boots. Before I was able to acquire these lovely shoes I had always had an eye out for them. It wasn’t so much the fact that they were shoes (because lets face it… I am obsessed with shoes), but because of how they were portrayed in Breaking Dawn part 1.
I know that must sound a little odd, but for some reason, the outfit Bella wore in the scene where she was practicing in her Manolo Blahnik wedding heels just seemed to come together in such a different way when she slid them back on. It really transformed the outfit, bringing it from a bit too clean and neat for Bella to girlie with a tiny bit of rough around the edges (which is what I adore most about Bella’s wardrobe).

Actually sliding your feet into these shoes isn’t as difficult as it may seem (Kristen Stewart did a great job of demonstrating this in the movie.) The laces are easy to loosen, and true to a boot design, you don’t necessarily have to lace them all the way up.
The actual support of the shoe is not the greatest. Some people may find they need to add inserts. Sizing however is spot on and true to size!

The color is actually very interesting to behold in person. Where you can easily say it is brown, the color goes much deeper than that. It is a cool reddish-brown, with slight undertones of blue, making the color come off as a cool burgundy color in certain lighting.
The cream-colored stitching and bottom of the shoes and the red and burgundy  from the laces complement this complex melody of colors, and ties it all in.

They are in fact great to wear with skinny jeans. If you’re looking for a pair of shoes to break up the dressy outfit you have going on up top, these are the perfect shoes to do it!

These skater shoes still live up to their reputation of being hard to find. Ebay is a great place to look. Even though they hardly pop up, vans offer great alternatives as well. Other great places to check are Bella Swan clothing Facebook pages. A lot of collectors post what they are selling so they don’t have to deal with eBay!
That’s it for now! Happy hunting!
