In the spring of 1996, the most prolific skateboarding shoe company came to life in Anaheim, California. "Vans" was born in the hands and minds of brothers Paul Van Doren & Jim Van Doren. Creating some of the most innovative skateboarding shoes of the day with models like the Authentic and later on partnering with skaters like Steve Caballero, Stacy Peralta, and Tony Alva to develop iconic shoes like the Half Cab and the Old School. Vans shoes feature unique technology that makes them unmistakable. Famously known for the durable waffle grip sole, signature thick rubber vulcanized sole construction, and more recently, UltraCush™.
Vans has gone far beyond just producing shoes. At Vans they continue to build partnerships and push boundaries with team video projects like Propeller. Then take their success on the streets to the snow, relaunching vans snowboarding with LandLine, focusing on the Hi-Standard boot. Let it be known, Vans isn't going anywhere soon and will continue to dominate this industry and keep you "Off The Walls".
