Vans Off the Wall Since 1966
Vans creates footwear and apparel for boarders the world over. In 1966, the Van Doren Rubber Company opened up for business in Anaheim, CA. Vans’ simple canvas shoes soon became a staple at the beach and throughout Orange County. In the mid Seventies, the first skateboard-specific shoe, the Era, was born. Within a few years, the Vans Sidestripe came to represent a look that still epitomizes the SoCal surf and skate scene. While you’re just as likely to see a pair of Vans Classics on the streets of Berlin, Rio or Tokyo as you are in Anaheim, you know that 40 years of Southern California soul are behind them.
Vans supports and promotes surfing through a full line of surf footwear and apparel, events such as the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing™ and through sponsorship of many of the world’s top surfers such as Joel Tudor, Timmy Reyes, Karina Petroni and Nathan Fletcher.
