Radical '80's beach bro fashions have carried on uninterrupted in some places, and for others, Vans continues to make those tubular styles readily available.

As we like it, it is Vans labelled throughout. Don´t miss out this cool piece for your perfekt and stylish summertime! On March 16th, 1966, at street 704E Broadway, in Anaheim, California, Paul Van Doren and three partners opened up their first ever store and the Vans dream was born. The Van Doren Rubber Company was unique in that it manufactures shoes and sells them directly to the public. On that first morning, 12 customers purchase shoes which are made that day and ready for pick-up in the afternoon. The Vans #44 deck shoes, which is now known as the Authentic were born. Vans continues to forge innovative collaborations through the Vault by BVans line with Vans sneaker combinations with design giant Marc Jacobs and OC up-and-comers Trovata flying off the shelves. In 2006 Vans celebrates 40 years at the heart of youth culture.
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. With their trailblazing Vans Warped Tour they have won over skateboard hearts all over the world, including ours.
