Vans - the classic American skate shoes.
Vans shoes are about attitude. It's that simple. These classic American shoes have defined what it means to be free to do what you want.
Since 1966, Vans shoes have been the epitome of American counter culture and adventure. They've taken wearers from their own back yards and into places further afield. Very little is as reliable as your faithful Vans shoes. Growing in the 70's and 80's, Vans canvas shoes could be seen throughout Southern California. These easy fit, slip on trainers were starting to become the subject of word of mouth whispers further afield.
Today, Vans are one of the most popular trainer brands in the world. Unlike the trainers that have been designed around running, Vans have perfected America skate shoes, the alternative to the everyday. You can see the styles that won over fans of the brand originally, which are still continue to draw new followers today. You can see this in the design of the Vans Authentic and Vans Old Skool ranges. These continue the lace up skate shoe style of their earliest shoes.
As a forward thinking company, Vans still continues to develop new techniques and styles to improve their collections. These are, after all, sports footwear! The familiar, chunky sole with waffle pattern grip has been created with skating in mind, sticking to the skateboard, and giving enough leeway to pull off the tricks. With the addition of the Vans Vulcanised shoes, you can get that sporty look with a more stylish finish, thanks to the addition of handsome leather uppers. Now your Vans can bring a little more sophistication to the party without losing any of that ruggedness you expect.
