VANS Store

By skaters for skaters


It’s hard to believe that this label is already 50 years old. Established in 1966 by the brothers Paul and Jim Van Doren in California, Vans is the favourite brand of the world’s skater and surfer communities.


Thanks to their ruggedness and non-slip sole, the Vans #44 deck shoes were the shoe of choice for riders in the 1960s – today the model goes by the name Authentic and, after some slight improvements, still defines the heritage of Vans, like all of its shoes.

One of their most popular models is the Slip On, a low-top without laces. The shoe with the checkerboard pattern achieved cult status overnight after it was worn by Sean Penn in 1982 in the film ‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High’. 

Since it was established, Vans has expressed its off-the-wall mentality in its products, constantly presenting new innovations and extraordinary styles and innovations. The brand regularly collaborates with noteworthy designers and sponsors skaters, BMX riders, snowboarders and surfers.
