All Vans, all the time: shoes for those going "dapper casual"

I was so inspired by Anthony's groom gear post yesterday that I decided to focus this shoe post on his footwear of choice: VANS!

Yes, Converse seem to be the standard favorite of many offbeat grooms (and more than a few brides!), but for those aiming for a "dapper casual" look, Vans are definitely a solid favorite.

I'm including a range of styles from high tops to slip-ons, and a range of colors from basic black and white to checkers and cheetah print… sadly, the flames are only available in kid sizes (perfect for a ring bear, perhaps?).
