Just received new Vans shoes for the guys and girls last week including TNT II Mids and Mid Cups, a new Chukka Low Orange colorway, and some  new girls Forty-Four Hi and Wellsey Hi’s.

Hard to go wrong with Vans, strong skate heritage and great looking product.

Cardiel, TNT, AVE, Layton, ROWLEY. Best dudes in the biz are backing them.

Era and Authentic’s have been around for decades and are still some of the best sellers. Open any fashion magazine and your guaranteed to find Vans on the feet of some of the models. Celebs? You know US Weekly and all those other mags have tons of photos of all those pasty dudes from New Twilight Diaries or whatever it’s called wearing Vans too.

Dirtbag skaters also wear Vans.

Check out the pics below and read the descriptions stolen directly from the Vans site.

TNT II MID Watermelons (Green)
The TNT II Mid is one of our team riders’ most requested shoes when their boxes are being packed. This shoe features a sidestripe and great colorblocking options, which result in endless color variations. The clean look and paneling work perfectly in the mid-cut design, which offers increased ankle support.

Chukka Low Orange/White
The Chukka Low was designed by our skate team. The inspiration was based on shoes like the Authentic and the Chukka Boot, using Syndicate features and technology. Every season we’ll mix it up with different riders to showcase the creativity and diversity of the team. The shoe is bound to be a classic and spotlights the timeless style of Vans.

TNT II MID Cup Black/Dark Earth

The TNT II Mid Cup evolves Tony’s most successful shoe and one of the best in our line up. The BoardFeel XD cup version of TNT’s classic mid-cut is an incredible blend of heritage and technology for Vans. Functionally, the shoe is lightweight, durable, and thin enough so you can feel your board but not bruise your heels. This shoe features a sidestripe and great colorblocking options, which result in endless color variations. The clean look and paneling work perfectly in the mid-cut design, which offers increased ankle support. The cupsole provides increased support and durability, with all the style you’d expect from a rock star like TNT.

Showdown Checkerboard Grey
The versatile Showdown offers unmatched appeal, borrowing from vintage wrestling boot, the new wave styles of the early ’80’s, and classic skate shoe alike. Strap them all the way up, or fold them down to reveal the plush pink lining within. Sturdy design elements include a gusseted tongue detail, over-sized grommets, vulcanized construction, and a waffle rubber outsole.

Wellesley HI Warm Coffee
Cool ’80s punkish hi-top with fold down upper. Interior fabric is plaid. Padded footbed. Canvas and suede upper. Rubber waffle outsole.

Forty-Four HI Blue/Green

The Forty-Four is a sporty shoe with unusual pedigree, combining elements from 80’s pop and contemporary skate fashion; their hi-top silhouette and checkerboard uppers and laces provide a versatile look that lends itself to a variety of styles. It’s also built for comfort, including a padded tongue and collar, and a durable cupsole that provides increased foot support.

Come have a peek, grab a pair for your Friday night kit.

So just wanted to let everyone know that Sideways has Hoodies, but no Snuggies. Our hoodies, from brands like Element, Volcom, WeSC, Nixon, and Nomis also allow you to work the remote, talk on the phone, enjoy a snack with ease. But unlike Snuggies, which make you look like a crazy person, hooded sweatshirts look great! Plus you can wear hoodies when walking, snowboarding, skateboarding, partying, pretty much anything. So yeah. No Snuggies here.

Here are some acceptable alternatives.

A down vest is a piece of outerwear that can really come in hand year-round. 600+ Fill means this thing is great for core warmth. The stuff sack is an awesome bonus and makes it even more . The amethyst(purple) colorway is stylish but not trendy and that a good thing cause you know Volcom gear is gonna last. I’ve had mine for over 10 years and it’s still kicking. Thanks Mom!
