We never really got behind the whole distressed clothing thing. Why spend hundreds of dollars on a pair of jeans made to look like you’ve been wearing them for years when you could just buy a new pair of jeans and actually wear them for years? And yet, we find ourselves fixating on these “Over Washed” SK8 Hi kicks from Vans California. Vans takes newly assembled 10 oz. canvas Authentic and Slip-on silhouettes and throws them through a ringer of enzyme washes, stonewashes, dip-dyes and oil treatments. When they emerge, the newly minted, over washed Sk8 Hi sneakers are the perfectly iconic look of a pair of decades old sneakers. The only thing they don’t come with is holes. You’ll have to add those yourself.

For all the valuable knickknacks strewn around the house or tossed haphazardly on your workbench, these boxes are ready to placate your inner organizational fiend.
