Kim Kardashian is no ordinary mom, she’s a costs mom. Or, at the very least, a forward-thinking mom. Unfortunately, some of the trends she’s rocked over the years aren’t, well…not exactly the most wearable (or accessible, for that matter) for the rest of us. Which is why we’re glad to see she’s been spotted lately in a classic sneaker that’s decidedly more budget-friendly – and, dare we say, much cuter for everyday wear: the black-and-white Vans Old Skool.
Launched as “Style 36” in 1977, the Vans Old Skool silhouette and side stripe became an instantly recognizable icon. Obviously, her cool and laid-back vibe has stood the test of time, but she’s enjoying her time in the fashion spotlight again thanks to Kim K.

Although Kim was most recently seen in the black and white variety, Vans Old Skool sneakers come in a ton of different colors, patterns, and materials — and we kind of want every pair, honestly. Like the “pink lemonade” version:
…or the leopard print. OHHHH, the leopard print!
And if you want to rock your Vans Old Skool trainers with a 90s vibe, go for the chunkier platform version (available in 10 different colors!).
People aren’t shy about crediting new BF Pete Davidson as the inspiration for the new kicks because he’s also been known to wear them. But let’s not forget that Kim wore a pair of Vans in a fresh Instagram post from May 2021. Obviously, she’s just a big fan of the laid-back style (and honestly, we can’t blame her – it must be a comfortable change rhythm of these stilettos).
We’d be remiss not to mention another cool (to-be!) mom who’s also been spotted in Vans Old Skool lately: none other than the one and only Rihanna, who rocked them in a black puffer jacket.
These two iconic moms are embracing this chic everyday sneaker, and we’re so here for that wearable style.
