Memorial Day is practically here and what better way to rep the good ol’ U.S of A than with some appropriate patriotic footwear? In honor of the day we’ve put together a short list of the perfect shoes for Memorial Day Weekend. These kicks are all excellent for the holiday weekend and whatever activities you’ve got planned.
If there was ever a more appropriate set of kicks for any holiday I’ve yet to see them. Designed to the brands 1960’s standards, the Vans Sk8-hi Reissue and Authentic Low Top both make use of a perfect mixture of patriotic stars and stripes across their canvas uppers, while vulcanized soles and matching white laces bring the kicks together. A must have for sneaker heads looking for a new pair of vans, or anyone looking for a pair to match that retro baseball you just brought.
If Vans, or the eye catching stars and stripes design isn’t really your thing, SeaVees has a pair of Slip-On’s that’ll get the job done just as well. Subtle by design the Baja Slip-On features a navy blue base with a series of red and white stripe overlays. A great choice if you’re not the flashy or over the top kind of footwear.
Our third pair isn’t necessarily the most patriotic pair of the bunch, but I’m a firm believer that sometimes less can be more, and that’s exactly what gets done with this clean take on the All Star Ox from Converse. The nearly monochromatic construction is broken up only by the most subtle of red and blue piping accents. Perfect if you’re rocking some other American themed apparel that day and want something simple to match.
So there ya have it, our suggestion on how to rep the Red, White and Blue this Memorial Day. So go out toss the ball around, BBQ some burgers and let us know what you’re rockin’ on feet this weekend!
