    I’d pass on you if you wore vans but didn’t come with a skateboard. I don’t like posers and pretenders

      I’ll wear the vans. How about you hold my skateboard when I whiteboard?

    I'd say what you wear is more determined on the company you're interviewing for, than the location

      Why would this even stick out as a detail to remember? It's as mundane as it gets

    Your interviewer is unlikely to consider your shoes unless they are particularly loud, which black Vans aren't. Mostly they're considering your ability to get the job done.

    Vans? I thought it's Merrell in Denver. Or at least allbirds.
