VANS ORIGINAL WAFFLE OUTSOLE
As early as 1966, Paul Van Doren designed the soles of his first sneakers to be twice as thick so that they lasted longer. In contrast to other shoemakers, he used pure crepe rubber without fillers. This decision shaped the history of Vans: the top skateboarders discovered the now legendary rubber sneaker with waffle-look, which combines board feeling with grip and thus provides incomparable control over skateboards.
Nothing really says skateboarding like Vans! Their first skate shoe was produced in 1966 and it's been a smooth, innovative ride ever since. Creativity and dedication to skateboarding is the foundation of Vans and with that they have made a huge impact so far. They have won over skateboard hearts all over the world, including ours.
