Acid washed denim has always gotten a bad rap. It’s easy to dismiss it as a relic of 80s and 90s fashion mistakes, but was the denim itself really the problem? If jeans are high-waisted and cinched at the same time, it isn’t the fabric wash that’s the problem. By the same token, if someone happened to pair acid washed denim with luridly fluorescent tank tops and hair teased to within an inch of its life, it is, again, not the denim’s fault.

Since showing is always better than telling, Vans presents its classic Slip On in acid washed navy/black denim. It’s simple enough to pair with anything, and, frankly you’d almost have to go out of your way to mess it up. Just remember, it isn’t the denim’s fault if you do.
