Vans' rugged construction and unique soles made them popular from the earliest days of skateboarding. The ideal combination of grip, comfort and durability gives skaters control and confidence without sacrificing the ‘feel’ of the board.
Vans pioneered design features specifically for skaters over the last five decades. Heavyweight, reinforced canvas and suede uppers provided resistance to wear and tear, with padded collars and high tops adding protection for exposed ankles.
The enduring build quality, premium design and classic silhouette have deeply ingrained Vans shoes in the skate culture. Investment in long term partnerships and events has developed a deep relationship that remains centred around the product where it all started - great shoes, on and off the skateboard.
