Singer Olivia Rodrigo didn’t single-handedly ignite our obsession with ’90s style, but we have to admit: her consistent and cool throwback looks made us wish that we’d hung on to a few iconic staples from the era. Fortunately, not all fads come and go. In fact, the few that demonstrate decade-lasting devotion tend to foster a cult following among fashion lovers of every persuasion.
Rodrigo was recently spotted wearing Vans Sk8-Hi sneakers with straight-leg jeans and an eye-catching green trench. While this look is super simple and easy to replicate, that’s exactly what gives Rodrigo’s style a cross-generational appeal. Plus, her exact sneakers are only $75, which makes this tried-and-true footwear staple easy enough to add to any wardrobe.
While there may be more expensive designer versions out there, we keep coming back to the OG canvas design. And the Hollywood set agrees: Affordable black and white Vans have also been spotted on everyone from Rihanna to Hailey Bieber.
Since the Vans brand first debuted in 1966 as a shoe for skateboarders, it has continued to evolve and push its design while maintaining its classic, cult-favorite styles, too. Ahead, shop 12 pairs of black and white Vans that are about to become your go-to sneakers.
