The Vans Slip-On sneakers are an ideal choice for anyone wanting to look stylish, put together and head out of the house quickly. Recently shoe retailer STUMPTOWN teamed up Vans to create a pair of Slip-On sneakers inspired by one of the most mysterious sea creatures, the stingray.

The stingray inspiration in these sneaker silhouettes is subtle giving them a sleek, understated and classic aesthetic. The shoe features the classic Vans thick white sole topped with a black wrap-around stripe. The top of the shoe features a delicate black dotted pattern inspired by the iridescent silvery skin of a stingray along the forefront and heel of the shoe. Other haute features include subtle, black leather detailing that adds a sophisticated element to these sneakers. Due to the exclusivity of the design, these sneakers run up to $579 USD making them a statement wardrobe piece.
