Vans represents four decades of skate and youth culture. The brand continually strives to produce durable footwear that is not limited within the normal boundaries of the imagination.
In 1966, the 'Van Doren Rubber Company' opened it's doors for business in Anaheim California, USA. Not long after, the Vans classic canvas shoes became a staple at the beach and all over Southern California, and the SoCal youth found that Vans authentic trainers' sturdy construction and sticky gum rubber sole made for the perfect skate boarding shoe. Both of these staples developed into a full collection of "Vans Classics" and "Vans Skate", which continue pay homage to the brand's roots and ethos.
This season, Vans footwear favourites such as the Vans Old Skool, Authentic, Classic Slip-On, Sk8-Hi, Vans Era are back with an ever expanding assortment of fabrics and designs, including suede and canvas combinations in a variety of bold as well as earthy colours, perforated leathers, new checker board combination, checks, plaids and pop-art prints.
