The Vans Patchwork Collection

Smart

By Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!


And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes -- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!


Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!

And then I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!


And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head --
Too proud of me to speak!

If you decide to indulge yourself with a large dose of nostalgia and watch some old episodes of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, you will surely find Will Smith wearing some kind of super cool, funky and technicolor outfit.  Anyone that knows him will surely be aware of how excited he would be about the all news Vans Patchwork Collection.

 

It’s pretty much an epic compilation of the most beloved colors of the ’80s and ’90s, put together in a super stylish way that’s half flamboyant and half urban.  They come in either high-top varieties, low skate tops, or as a slip on for those that don’t have it in them to tie their shoes.

 

The entire collection is available on the vans website, but if you really want to throw it back, then you’re best bet is hitting up the mall, 1990’s style.
