Vans Old School - Kick it Old School
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
A trainer made for the streets!
The Californian way of life
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. Because of the minimalistic design and authentic style, it fits with every outfit and is very easy to combine with a lot of different styles. The skate shoes are available in both low and high cuts and a whole lot of different colorways – classic black and white, bright neon colours or delicate pastel shades. Furthermore you can combine the shoes with a colourful pair of high socks to generate a real eye catcher, for some inspiration check our How To Sock-guide.
The Vans Old Skool skate shoe mainly represents one thing – a unique lifestyle. So pick your favourite pair from our wide collection and bring some southern Californian sun into your grey big city life.
