Megan Fox and Kristen Bell are also fans of the practical shoes.
Everyone needs at least one pair of classic wear-with-anything sneakers in their closet. Finding a pair that goes with (almost) everything is often a much more practical choice of footwear than a pair of heels or wedges.
We’re taking a page out of Emily Ratajkowski’s book, who opts for the comfort of sneakers on many occasions, making them a staple in her everyday street style looks. There’s one brand of shoe in particular that she wears over and over again — Vans. Whether she wears them with a simple LBD, jeans and a graphic T-shirt, or cargo pants and a halter top, the timeless shoe always pulls her outfit together.
Vans have been around since 1966, and the brand is most notable for the skateboarding shoe styles that feature a flat, thick rubber sole and a canvas exterior. Since then, they’ve been worn by celebrities like Emily Ratajkowski, in addition to Kristen Bell and Megan Fox.
If you’re looking to grab your first pair of this celebrity go-to shoe or want to add to your collection, we’ve rounded up some comfortable, summer-ready styles available at Nordstrom that you can snag for up to 55 percent off.

The Vans Authentic Sneaker is a classic, lace-up unisex style with a canvas lining and rubber sole that one shopper said goes “great with just about any outfit.” Another reviewer even mentioned that they accidentally stained the shoes but were able to “easily clean them,” so don’t let the potential for stains deter you from opting for the crisp white color. The simple shoe goes with just about anything in your closet, including dresses, jeans, and maxi skirts.
