    When I was younger, I used to be a tomboy. I loved wearing my Bulls jersey with my black Classic Slip-On Vans. That was the outfit of choice! But even though I loved dirtying up my Vans and kickin it with the boys, I loved me some Hello Kitty! Loved going into the store with my Vans on and walking out with that blue Sanrio bag in hand!

    Thats why i LOVE the Vans x Hello Kitty Collection. What a perfect match! My favorite style is the Authentic because the laces make them look and feel a little girlier! They’re so me!

    Vans has been a part of my shoe collection since I was a kid and now being almost in my mid-twenties they still are! :] When I found out that Vans x Hello Kitty were doing a collabo I almost died from excitement. Two of my favorite things from my childhood that I’m still obsessed with now coming together, I couldn’t be a happier girl. My favorite style from the collection would have to be the Authentics because that is what I grew up wearing. It’s the classic style and I like how one comes in pink for the girly girls and the black for the not so girly but still love Hello Kitty girls (and guys!).

  10. Lisa said, on June 3, 2011 at 3:00 PM

    SK8-Hi D-Lo is so cute and hip. They stand out in a world where shoes need more than just solid colors and checkers but Hello Kitty Prints. They have a Hello Kitty Boot/ Sneaker look.
    I would rock these SK8-Hi D-Lo everyday!!

    • Lisa said, on June 3, 2011 at 3:02 PM

    slip ons cause im lazy, authentics to skate.

  14. billie dominguez brandvold said, on June 3, 2011 at 4:34 PM

    classic slip ons are called “classic” for a reason. but i must say that i’m feeling the black authentics. the red laces give it that little extra something. aaannnd the multi colored authentics just scream summertime.

  15. Kstyle said, on June 3, 2011 at 5:12 PM

    I love Vans x The Hello Kitty SK8-Hi D-Lo! Nothing beats Hello kitty printed High tops. Actually there is one thing that beats them…FREE Hello kitty printed High tops. Haha.
    Good luck everyone!

  16. Heather Kelterer said, on June 3, 2011 at 5:25 PM

  20. BananaClipse said, on June 3, 2011 at 6:22 PM

    The the Sk8-Hi D-Lo’s are definitely the sleepers. Black soles are under rated

  21. Renee said, on June 3, 2011 at 7:04 PM

    Dang this is like choosing which child you love most. Feels so wrong. But since you asked, I’m in love with the SK8 Hi-D Lo mashup. Cuteness w/a little edge and I’m all about the black laces and soles. They’re perfect!!!

  22. whotolduthat said, on June 3, 2011 at 7:20 PM

    i love the SK8 Hi-Lo! high top kicks are a small obsession of mine, so i definitely was drawn to those first=P love the black contrast on the sole + laces too=]

  31. Oboque said, on June 4, 2011 at 3:02 AM

    Hi @lady_yoshi & @VANS_66! I β™₯β™₯β™₯ the Sk8-Hi D-Lo!!!
    They’re ultracute, and…I don’t know, they’re extremely eyecatching, I love funky stuffs. And this pair of shoes are soooooo me! I like the Sk8 or Hi-Top shoes to wear, actually, LOL ;p
    And I’m sure, VANS will never ever dissapointed the fans, so…I believe the quality, it’ll be super comfortable for me to wear.
    And the most important of all is…I Lβ™₯β™₯β™₯VE Hello Kitty! Chu~ XD
    VANS x Hello Kitty = E.P.I.C! πŸ˜‰

  32. Jackie said, on June 4, 2011 at 3:41 AM

    Sk8 Hi D-Lo is my favorite because it shows off that it’s Hello Kitty very well with the bright colors and high tops are just nice. It shows that Vans can still look like the original vans even when it’s a high top. I love vans for being the most comfortable shoes ever. For being so simple but classic at the same time. Major props! combined, it just makes it unbelievably awesome.
    Been a fan of Lady Yoshi (you) for over a year now. Still loving your blogs always! ❀

  33. Tran Nguyen said, on June 4, 2011 at 11:47 AM

    I love love love the classic slipons! Why? Because it provides easy access when putting on your shoes, the overall style is cute, and the image of hello kitty and nice and large which I love ❀ Who doesn't love little Hello Kitty? Lol. ❀

  34. elle hampton said, on June 4, 2011 at 2:32 PM

    its hard to decide whether i like the slip ons or authentic better because theyre both so comfortable! i luike ot be more original though, so i think i like the slip ons better. not as many people wear them any more wear im from, they all have moved on to the authentic vans (i love both!) but slip ons are a classic that will NEVER get old! the checker board matches every thing and the hello kittys on these new ones mix it up! i have 10 pairs of vans and hoping this will be my 11th! πŸ™‚

  35. Nicole said, on June 4, 2011 at 2:35 PM

    I like classic slip ons because they are so cute and super easy if you need to put them on in a rush Awesome Contest!!!! <3<3<3

  36. artiffact said, on June 4, 2011 at 2:43 PM

    I love the classic slip-ons! These are the go-to shoes for any day, and with Hello Kitty all over the Vans now, it will make any day even brighter!! I used to work at the Hello Kitty Sanrio store in college, and I just dreamed of having Hello Kitty shoes, and I’m so happy to know that Vans helped make it happen.

    P.S. My daughter is the same shoe size as me and I know that we’d be sharing these shoes!

  37. Kyle tobey said, on June 4, 2011 at 4:44 PM

    I love the Authentics. Mostly because im a dude and they are the only ones I can pull off. πŸ˜€

  38. jessica said, on June 4, 2011 at 4:45 PM

    Loving the HK authentic lo pros! I’ve been wearing the classic slip-ons for what, 6 years now? and since i got the lo pro gore style last year, i’m hooked! Desite getting older, i don’t think i’ll ever be able to stray away from Vans and this new HK line certainly doesn’t help with the on-going addiction. The small, all over print of the lo pros is way too cute. Dainty and sweet for all ages.

  39. Lisa L. said, on June 4, 2011 at 4:50 PM

    My favorite out of the Vans Hello Kitty collection are the Authentic Lo Pro! Not only are they comfortable shoes, but the bright colors accented with Hello Kitty are definitely a great way to catch everyones attention for this summer. πŸ™‚

  40. shelly larson said, on June 4, 2011 at 7:27 PM

    i super love the hello kitty x vans checked slip ons..
    because, they combine the classic checked slip on with a fun hello kitty.

  42. Jenn said, on June 4, 2011 at 10:24 PM

    I like the pink authentics because they are perfectly pretty in pink!

  43. janice said, on June 4, 2011 at 10:25 PM

    I love the Authentic Lo Pro just because the print is really cute and I can actually see myself wearing them on a daily basis than the other shoes.

  49. Genesis Vallecillo said, on June 6, 2011 at 10:32 PM

    Even though I love all the pairs, the pair that strikes me the most is the Authentic Lo Pro. Perfect to the human eye. The detail in the shoes are great, especially the fact that Hello Kitty is on her helicopter! I just love it.

    Thanks for doing this contest! Hopefully I can still get myself another pair even if I don’t win! πŸ™‚

    Hello Kitty POW! LOL

    The slip ons are classic, and super comfy. And who doesn’t absolutely love Hello Kitty? (I know I’m crazy for her.) I have lots of socks, now I just need the shoes to go with!

  51. Christa @glitterslap said, on June 7, 2011 at 3:02 AM

    I LOVE the Authentic Lo Pros because they are by far the cutest! I own about three pair but nothing as cute as the hello kitty ones! I must have! Also the Authentic Lo Pros are more appealing because they are more versatile and can be worn by all ages of women without looking to “young,” thus greater profit for vans!

  52. Erika Serrano said, on June 7, 2011 at 9:53 PM

    i love the Vans x Hello Kitty Authentic Lo Pros! they are by far the cutest shoes. I need new Lo Pros in my life

  54. Alyssa F said, on June 9, 2011 at 5:28 PM

    i really like the authentic low pro’s because they are comfy and they are so cute!

  55. jsicarsrio said, on June 9, 2011 at 5:32 PM

    I like the authentic lo pro’s! They’re my favorite because they’re more of my style. The print looks better on white and it’s a great Spring shoe!

  56. Stacy Wong said, on June 9, 2011 at 7:11 PM

    I love the Authentic and the Classic Slip on’s—hard decision to make between the two as they are soooooo cute!!!

  57. Alyssa said, on June 9, 2011 at 8:16 PM

    My favorite are the checkered Classic Slip-ons. All time classic design with a great Hello Kitty touch. I love Slip-ons because I hate tying my shoes. I’d love to give a pair to my special friend. She loves all my shoes & is doing better about expressing herself through her feet. These would be so fun for her.

  62. Melissa V said, on June 11, 2011 at 11:58 AM

    i love hello kitty! the Authentic Lo Pros are my favorite because there so cute and colorful. thanks!

  63. ashleysade said, on June 12, 2011 at 10:57 AM

    I love love love love LOVE the vans x hello kitty Sk8 Hi D-Lo! When I first saw the colletion, I knew that I had to have them. I’ve been waiting for june to come, because of these! The style lightweight reminds me of a doc marten but they’re even steezier. I swear I’d rock these everyday – I love hello kitty so much, I actually have her tatted on my chest (no joke). If I don’t win, I want the sk8 hi d-lo’s REGARDLESS buuuut it’ll be dope if I could actually get a free pair instead!

    My favorite is Hello Kitty Authentic Lo Pro. Because….
    These shoes are so kawaii.
    I would wear them anywhere!! Even hawaii!
    Hello Kitty and vans are a perfect match.
    No, one would EVER throw Vans in the trash.
    Hello Kitty is amazingly adorable.
    Vans are so admirable.
    From the beach, to the mall.
    Hello Kitty is an adorable doll!!
