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.

    Favorite vans shoes. Have purchased several times and keep coming back to them. Similar style to the authentic, but more durable.

    I purchased these shoes for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day and he loved them. The color, the style are great! The only thing he has complained about is the heel rubbing, but I think that might be the case until they are broken in. Thanks Zappos!

    Really like these shoes. They were a little tight on the toes the first couple times I wore them, but they seem to be breaking in fine after that. Not sure how they will do in warmer weather, but they are certainly good for a rainy February. There's more arch support than most of the other flat soled vans, but still Van's aren't really known for that. They have a nice wide toe box. The soles are thicker than usual vans, so I don't get as much feedback from the ground when I walk. They look great and I've received some good compliments!

    Great shoe! Was searching for a comfortable slip-on shoe for talking in Japan this spring. This shoe will be perfect. I am normally between an 8-9. Ordered an 8.5 and it feels a little big (long, not wide). Not enough for me to send it back. Other than that, they are very comfortable, easy to get off and on, great quality and will look good with anything. Super-fast shipping from Zappos as usual.

    These are the most flattering style of vans shoes. I have them in all white, grey/white, and black/white. Great casual wear shoes and match with many different outfits.

    This is basically a rubber shoe. Nice cozy fleece like material inside. However, for my primary shoe, I do not want a rubber shoe at this cost. I am returning. If you have multiple shoes like this one in your collection this would be a nice addition. not for me though.

    Good shoe for many occasions. They go with just about anything and are pretty comfortable for a whole day of wear. Standard vans- good shoe for a great price.

    They fit true to size, are comfy even without much arch support. I'm a full 9 although medium width usually works out for me and these fit comfortably in width. I wear them for their cuteness not as a real athletic shoe. They're a little pricey for what they are which is simple canvas and a rubber sole. The star studs add flare and the slip on feature make them a great casual choice.
