I bought them because I wanted all grey shoes for the day. My work colleague who is 30 said I'm abit old for them but not for Converse -confused will I look like the olsdest swinger in town? I can still take them back.

What a bitchy thing to say! I'm 33, perhaps I'm too old to get it too! Pah. I always liked vans. It's not as if you have to be a skater to wear them.

My 81yr old grams has vans smile

I'm 36, almost 37 and I want a pair. My DP lives in his!

I've got a Liberty pair and love them. I'm 42.

The age limit is simply a limit in your colleagues head. Normal people see canvas style pumps with a brand badge on. Either you like that style shoe or you don't. Splitting brands into age appropriateness illustrates a tendency to over think things and of having to much time on her hands, delegate more work her way grin

I want vans and I'm over 30.
I have converse but they really hurt, my little toes get blisters. I tried my mates vans on and now I want I want I want.

I'm almost 35 and I wear Vans all the time. Couldn't care less what people think and they go with loads of outfits...and they're mega comfy. Love them. smile

There is no age limit on Vans nor it seems on stupidity. Your colleague not you OP.

Bombaybunty Thu 18-Jun-15 15:55:00

I have a Liberty pair as well and I'm 53!

Ridiculous colleague.

Icelandicsuperyoghurt Thu 18-Jun-15 16:23:53

I would have bought some the other day if they'd have been comfortable. I'm 54. Why on earth should Converse be ok but Vans not - is she the shoe age police?!

Madbengalmum Thu 18-Jun-15 17:33:34

Stupid person, no you are not too old!

spleenyone Thu 18-Jun-15 17:39:54

Do not take them back! I'm 36 and still wear vans, have done since I was a teenager and probably always will. That woman was rude.

Themoleandcrew Thu 18-Jun-15 17:42:52

I'm 34 and I have Star Wars vans. I don't care if I'm too old I love them

Marylou2 Thu 18-Jun-15 17:43:54

Can't imagine Vans would be too pleased to read this, imagine having your market restricted to the under 30s only. DH wears them all the time and he's (whisper it) 54!! What nonsense from your colleague.

Potterwolfie Thu 18-Jun-15 17:47:37

I'm 40 and I bought some striped lace up ones recently, as a change from my usual Converse. Love them. Too old? Pfft!

EuphemiaCoxton Thu 18-Jun-15 20:05:50

Just googled star wars vans.
Awesome.

AmelieinOz Thu 18-Jun-15 23:52:30

I think your colleague is just being a bitch.

I would love a pair of Star Wars vans. I have the Beatles one.

My 80 year old mother bought herself some Babycham trainers the other day 'because they're so comfy'... grin

I have some ponyskin ones. I am 44.

AgentProvocateur Fri 19-Jun-15 08:50:56

I'm 47 and I love my Vans.

WhirlpoolGalaxyM51 Fri 19-Jun-15 08:53:58

I wasn't even aware that people looked at clothes and thought in terms of age-appropriateness. I mean apart from babygros and things! Mind you, onesies.

Don't people just think, I like that, it suits me, I'll buy it? And sometimes, I like that, and it doesn't really suit me, but I don't care?!!

Ignore your colleague she is being very silly.

Trills Fri 19-Jun-15 08:56:42

Vans are for swingers are they?

<eyes people on the bus carefuly>
