Vans Creates Nationals Inspired Footware, Consensus Is “Absolutely Hideous”


Hat-tip of the day goes to DC Sports Blogger Jamie Mottram of Mr.Irrelevant for spotting the most hideous display of Nationals sporting apparel.

The sneakers are part of a jersey/shoe combo created by Vans with help from Major League Baseball for a new “Opening Day Collection“. The combo go on sale April 5 at one location only in the District (this is where we let out the collective sigh that this is at least a LIMITED EDITION purchase and not an on-going effort to raise the Nats street cred).

If you’re interested in either buying the jersey/shoe or people watching while people attempt to make the purchase, stop by Commonwealth located at 1781 Florida Avenue Northwest, DC.
