First off, ditch the running shoes, you can leave bare foot, or if your gym allows that I will get some chuck Taylor, some wrestling shoes, you can blow it out some vans~!

What does "you can blow it out some vans" mean?

I know vans is a name of shoes brand, but I don't get it that last part "you can blow it out some vans." Does it mean you can even wear vans while you are working out?

Actually I heard this from a youtube video, at 01:07, this guys said those, but I really don't get it "blow it out some vans".


Is this a sort of unborn word?

  • Can you tell us what this is from? It looks very informal... Some context may help us answer your question.

What he says is

You can lift barefoot, or, if your gym doesn't allow that, I would get some old Chuck Taylors ... some wrestling shoes ... or you can bro it out with some Vans.

meaning approximately "You can demonstrate your adherence to conventional standards of masculinity by wearing Vans."

Bros are unrelated 'brothers': a young man's male friends with whom he shares stereotypically male interests such as athletics, drinking, and loud aggressive by-play. See Wikipedia Bro (subculture). To bro it out means to behave or to present yourself like a bro.

  • ..and Vans, of course, are a brand of shoes that one might expect bros to wear.
