Vans shoes was founded in California in 1966 as the original skateboard footwear brand. Subsequently, Vans has become synonymous with skate shoes and the Californian board sport culture that surrounds its heritage. Now, over 50 years on and Vans is still a market leader in skate shoe design, whether it be the classic product range that features iconic styles such as the Old Skool and the Sk8 Hi, or more modern forward-thinking silhouettes that push the boundaries of style and function. Vans continue to innovate as a brand and have many skateboard legends that endorse their products such as Steve Caballero whose name is carried by the famous mid-top shoe, the Half Cab. Whether your passion, is skateboarding, surfing or snowboarding, you can relate the long history that has been built by being true to themselves and true to their cultural roots.
