Vans


Off the Wall is a state of mind. Thinking differently. Embracing creative self-expression. Choosing your own line on your board and in your life. When kids snuck into empty backyard pools seeking to expand the limits of what could be done on skateboards, Off the Wall was born. Vans. Off the Wall Since 1966.

Favorite shoes
By Shelley, from Valparaiso, IN | July 21, 2014

Love these shoes. Bought a pair for the whole family including myself. They are great shoes, well made and also light weight. Great for easy access. I wear them to the beach or for a walk. They seem to be true to size, but most of all the are very comfortable.

Vans Authentic $34.95 - $44.95
Confortable and subtle
By Andy, from Texas | July 04, 2014

I ordered some off white Vans mainly because I wanted the black line around the shoe that the all white lacks. The shoe looks great after some lace swapping. Also, they're comfortable on the sole just like my old vans (new era). I claim true to size because I know my sizing in Vans, which is half a size larger than my actual size. Overall great buy!!

  • Shoe Size: Felt true to size
  • Shoe Width: Felt true to width
  • Wears this shoe: When i go out.

Authentics different
By Sean, from Plum Island, MA | June 15, 2014

I love these shoes but found the Authentics to be a half size larger than other Vans I have had. This isn't a Van Doren comment as I tried on regular Authentics too.

  • Shoe Size: Felt half size larger than marked
  • Shoe Width: Felt wider than marked

Shoebuy Insider on Vans Shoes

Vans humble beginnings root back to the Van Doren Rubber Company in Anaheim, CA during the mid 1960's. From there, Vans slowly evolved as the brand of choice for skaters during the skating boom of the 1970's and has remained a fashion staple of alternative style ever since. The canvas topped, vulcanized soled, waffle tread kicks have been worn by iconic pop-culture figures like Sean Penn (as Jeff Spicoli) in Fast Times at Ridgemont High and the Z-Boys skate team.

Vans is still very much immersed in the skate and surf scene that originally put them on the map, with sponsorship teams boasting names like professional skaters Bucky Lasek and Geoff Rowley. In addition to the skate and surf foundation they have built their brand on, Vans has branched out to sports like BMX, Snowboarding, and Motocross. Vans is also involved in the music that is such an integral part of the action sports culture, sponsoring the Vans Warped Tour concert series.

As the company moves ahead, they continue to offer their ageless Authentic, Era and Classic Slip-On styles with the new timely twists, as well as new fashion forward footwear concepts. Simply put, Vans manages to continue to revamp and redefine fashionable simplicity. Whether you like to sport a clean pair to add some personality to formal wear, or proudly wear your yellow-soled, ripped canvas favorites with jeans, Vans can add the spirit of SoCal to any look.
