Vans Old Skools are the new It-girl sneaker to break into the street-style scene. Correction: The new old sneaker. The shoe first made its debut in 1977 as the skater brand's low-top design, featuring the now-iconic "jazz stripe." More than 40 years later, not much about the style has changed. The shoe has since garnered worldwide recognition, found a place in fashion through collabs (with Marc Jacobs, for one), and now is back as a street-style staple.

It first started with flock of Instagram stars, then the celebrities — like Bella Hadid, who wore them over the weekend with a pair of on-trend bike shorts and a neon top. (Julia Roberts also owns a pair). Click through to see which A-listers have already taken to the classic Old Skools, and to shop them for yourself.

Let's call this the only-if-your-name-is-Kendall-Jenner-can-you-pull-this-off look. For a less scary approach: swap the baby tee for a longer one, lace-up leather pants for black skinnies, and the same Vans Old Skools.
