Re: Newbie- could use some help
Go on the OTWS blog, and I have a list of stores that stock a good amount of Vans, under the column "Sneakerhavens". It's by no means everywhere out there, and these sites don't list all of their Vans stuff either. Just the stuff that they think is more sought after. With Vans, first you have to decide what series you're looking for. (Syndicate, Vault, California, GR, collabs). Then you gotta figure out who carries those collections. Then you gotta find out who has what in stock. Our blog will help you anticipate what's coming soon, and our forums will be your extra eyes and ears out there, to help you find stuff you want. We also have a Twitter account, and a Twitter heads up account, for instant updates on time sensitive deals and what not. There's no easy way to collect Vans, you just gotta get your feet wet here and there, and then before you know it, you'll be teaching others!
Also read up on the different sections in here. People who sign up as a member on the OTWS forums will have access to other sections of the board, that visitors can't see. Start crawling around, and get acquainted
