Geeky Shoes

By: Terra Clarke Olsen

Vans recently released an amazing Star Wars line of shoes, backpacks, and hats. I’ve never owned a pair of Vans before, but that’s about to change because I essentially want it all. Look at this amazing flower print, subtly  featuring Yoda. A thing of beauty, really.
