I find that within a day's wear, Vans' midsoles become fucked up in the back (where the logo is.)

Is there any way I could stop this from happening?

Uh, they are actually 75$ dollar shoes here, so keep your mouth shut and don't make ignorant statements like that.

And I think it'll look a little weird if I have tape on the bottom of my shoes.

No, I don't drag my feet.

And if I can't wear them, I have nothing else to wear. I never wear my Jordans or Nikes except for special occasions, and I wear Vans because I don't have to take as much care of them. But if they're fucked up within a day, what am I to do?

AMERIKS, stop being a pussy about your shoes. I wear my navy w)tap synicates everyday and it hasn't been happening to me, mind you I've been wearing them for a month already. If you wanna argue about prices, its about $100-150 on the marketplace now, so stop crying. You just don't know how to walk.

Shoes are made to be worn so stop bickering homie.

if your Vans are 'fucked up within a day' you're a 'tard (Full Stop). - ignorance is coming to a forum asking a remedial question then catching feelings when you don't like someones answer.

Lol, you can always expect quality help from the members here on Hypebeast...

I'm not bitching or being a pussy about my shoes. Unlike most of you, apparently, I don't like my shoes looking fucked up. This kid is telling me that I'm catching feelings? I'm not catching shit, y'all are just getting uppity. It was a pretty legitimate question, but, like usual, you guys are trying to turn it into a flamewar.

cool story bro, amirite

If you dont want them messed up but you still want to wear them, make your shoes into a crown and wear them on your head so they dont get dirty from the ground.

This had me laughin. But seriously vans look best when they're all fucked up anyway. Just fuckin wear them. If you say you wear your jordans and nikes for special occasions and wear your vans regularly then why should it fuckin matter. If you don't want your vans to get fucked up then hit up your local walmart and cop a pair of shoes for $5 and wear those. Hell I skated my max schaaf mountain editions, wear my fixed gear eras when I'm riding my fixie, beat the hell out of my yesterdays future sk8 hi's (240 made), as well as bought a pair of eras just to fuck up in cuba. Get over the whole keeping your shoes on ice and wear em. Who the fuck is going to see them then if they're just sitting in your room, other than your man friend.

vans wear out easily, plain and simple. once you worn the heel end round enough, itll just stop at a certain point by itself.

That's been the issue with all my Vans... I'd really like to stop it though.

Thank you all for your time.

its common sense, just pick up your feet, all shoes get heel drag but not all of us bitch about it on a forum.
