About Vans

Offering the largest shoe collection in the industry for nearly 50 years, Vans has inspired generations of skateboarders to grab air and fly. As extreme sports continue to evolve so does their sought after style.  From collaborations with Disney®, to putting together the nation’s leading action sports and music festival; they’ve held their place as innovators.

In 1975, the Vans Era™ was designed by professional skateboarders Tony Alva and Stacey Peralta to be a top choice in footwear because of its colorful canvas uppers and stellar grip. Emerging trends brought us the Vans Classics Slip-On™, Sk8-HI™ and Chukka Boots, which cemented the idea that their brand would leave its mark on pop culture and the world.

Expanding these elements into performance gear for BMX, snowboarding, surfing and motocross, just to name a few; they have created edgy apparel and accessories rich with technology and fashion. Quality jackets, soft tees and flowy dresses, set Vans apart from the competition.

Threading together their enthusiasm for creating fresh new styles at the heart of youth culture made for men, women and kids; Vans promotes individuality and motivates us to define who we are and where we want to be.

    I wasn't expecting to like these shoes. I ordered them for the look, but honestly figured when I put them on I would send them back. I assumed they'd be really narrow and uncomfortable. They're not! I like them and have found that I wear them all the time. I highly recommend the vans socks as well as they are the only ones I have found that actually stay on and do not show.

    I'm an "old school mom" and love to dress my kids in throw back sneaker that I wore as a kid..when I saw these, I knew they would be perfect for my 9 year old. He wear a 5.5 in big kids so I just calculated these grown up shoes size to his and bought them. All the kids in his class thinks he's extra cool!!

    An excellent, simple but comfortable shoe. I have arthritis in my feet and prefer light, soft shoes I can slip on. These Vans are one of my go-to shoes. They run a half-size larger than the comparable slip-ons from DC and have slightly more internal width. My feet spread a lot when I step down so I prefer to have a bit more spreading room. These aren't wide shoes by any means but they offer a bit more room than the DC slip-ons I have tried.

    A nice all day shoe. I wear these while standing and walking all day at work and they feel comfy. A little stiff but they break in quick.

    These shoes are pretty cool, they're relatively comfortable if you're already cool with other styles of vans. The only concern I have is that they're not as water resistant as I'd hoped because after a 2 mile walk in the rain my feet were definitely pretty wet. Though they weren't drenched so that's actually pretty impressive.

    Quite possibly the best Vans I have ever owned. There isn't much bulk to these at all so protection while skating is limited, but other than that, they are stylish, comfortable and cool. A solid shoe to have for spring and summer. Colder weather might not be the best habitat for these guys but they will keep your feet happy all summer long.

    These shoes are amazing! They look and feel great. There is a short break-in period where they were stiff, but after a day or two they were fully broken in and so comfortable! I love having the utility the shoe provides while looking great! I highly recommend these to anyone considering them!
