Upgrading your west coast style since 1966, Vans is the OG when it comes to skate shoes and coordinating clothes and accessories. Founded by the Van Doren brothers - Paul and James - along with Gordon Lee, they opened their first store in Anaheim, CA as The Van Doren Rubber Company. It wasn’t long until Vans became the shoe of choice for skateboarders in southern California. Stay right on-trend and always comfortable in cool, laid-back essentials from Vans.
California cool reigns supreme on today’s Vans shoes, with durable construction designed to withstand wear and tear on the half-pipe. Streetwise and oh-so-comfy, Vans Classic Slip-Ons bring the board-worthy vibes in an easy-on package. Dope prints, several colorways and their signature Vans “Off The Wall” heel tab level up these comfy kicks, so you can showcase your casual style. The Vans Old Skool is another fan favorite, with men’s, women’s, and kids’ sizes so everyone in the family can rock skate vibes. These lace-up sneakers feature the iconic Vans side stripe, along with a variety of prints like the unmistakable checkered print that’s a constant in the world of Vans.
Some of the kids’ sneakers feature a hook-and-loop strap closure, so kiddos can get a stay-put, easy-on fit—a must when toddlers want to do everything all by themselves! We can't forget about Vans high-top models, either. The Vans Sk8-Hi is a versatile pair of sneakers that come in canvas, textile, or even suede, with quilting at the collar for added comfort. Some of the latest models feature fun animal prints, leveling up the classic kicks with a dash of trend-savvy style.
