Born in the Californian sun in 1977 and a huge part of the sneaker world ever since: The Vans Old Skool! After the release of the classics Vans Authentic the van Doren brothers strived to develop the perfect skate shoe.

It all started with the idea of manufacturing a durable sneaker which would meet the hard requirements of the street skate-scene. The developers wanted to provide a shoe for the boys and girls shredding the skate parks that wouldn’t tear up just after a few kickflips. Because of this they equipped their Old Skool Sneaker with useful tough features...

...Resilient suede material to keep the shoes from ripping
...A reinforced toe-cap to guarantee durability
...The classic vulcanized rubber sole with waffle design to ensure grip
... A cushioned insole and tongue to prevent pressure marks


But the thing that makes the Old Skool Sneakers so unique besides their awesome features is the classic Vans side stripe. Today it is considered as the status symbol of the skate scene. That’s what makes the Old Skool sneaker a must-have in every shoe collection.
