VANS x Hello Kitty: I Finally Own a Pair!

This is out of the norm to blog about shoes, but it's Hello Kitty! I have been wanting a pair of VANS x Hello Kitty shoes since the first launch back in 2011. I was attracted to some of the older designs but it wasn't enough of a push for me to purchase a pair...until now!

VANS x Hello Kitty Authentic Lo Pro: White Face

I purchased these lovely shoes at I'm super happy and love my new shoes! I was hoping for a small gift like how Sanrio stores give out such as stickers or a tiny trinket. The receipt says the "free" gift is the custom pink and logo tissue paper (see picture below). It's cute, but I don't know what to do with it. I'd rather have a sticker :)

I'm slightly disappointed about shoe box though. The graphics are not aligned which bothers me a lot. And there's sticky note ON top of the box and I can't rip it off without tearing the box. Not a big deal.

Aside from that, I felt like a kid opening my box. Each shoe was wrapped in white tissue paper with Hello Kitty face all over and VANS logo. I must as well keep this tissue paper too :P

Specifications for Hello Kitty Authentic Lo Pro:
♥ Cute canvas print
Sleek low profile
Pink gum rubber micro waffle outsole
Soft cotton inline
Lightweight canvas upper
Die-cut EVA insert for added support
Purple inside with cute logo

I love my new shoes!
Some side notes:
♥ Shoe laces are too long
I'm either size 6 or 6.5, but got size 6.5 in case. It's a bit loose, but I don't mind
For reference, the shoes are not as slim as Converse's Chuck Taylor slim sneakers
