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.
Vans always seem to run a little small in my opinion, but these stretched and became comfortable after a few wears. Very durable and I love them!
These are the only shoes my teenage son will wear.
Such a cute shoe! I ordered my normal size 8 but I had to reorder a half size smaller! I have really skinny feet maybe thats why! Also I wore these without socks and they gave me blisters! Hopefully with socks I won't blister up again! The platform is everything! I LOVE them!
I love the style even though it's abbot narrow.
This shoe was beyond great. The style looks amazing. When I skated these the flick was perfect.
I love these shoes! Although they have little arch support they are still one of my favorite. It's been a while since I've had these but I am very glad I ordered myself a pair. They are hard to find in stores around here. And you can never go wrong with black, they go with anything!
I love Vans, reminds me of my high school days when I used to skate with my brother. Yes, I'm a woman and I still love to skate, even in my 40's : ) These shoes are comfy, I wear them to work and when I'm out with friends or with my daughter. Style is great, goes well with jeans and shorts. Highly recommend, whether you're a skater or not.
Great shoes great design
I love these shoes! It's so hard to find shoes that fit my wide feet and look cute. I wore these for around 2 1/2 months in Japan and my feet were never tired in them. Comfort and style wise these were amazing, but quality really lacked in the fabric. By a few weeks into wearing these the back heel fabric started ripping and by the end of two months there was rips in both shoes at the heel and on the sides. I think these shoes would be fine for everyday wear, but don't wear them for long distances. I ended up having the throw them away and only got a few months of wear in them. I am still going to purchase another pair since the comfort and style will be impossible to find after they're discontinued.
silver sage came looking like khaki - totally different then the color name and picture shown still a decent shoe for the price just wish the color was true to the name/pic like the shoe but gave overall 2 stars for the color
