The Old Skool debuted in 1977 as the so-called "Style 36", and showcased the now iconic Vans sidestripe. A new low-top style as Vans' first skate shoe that incorporated leather panels, the company that had been founded as the Van Doren Rubber Company in Anaheim in 1966 had a new classic silhouette on its hands. What started as a random doodle by Paul Van Doren was originally referred to as the "jazz stripe", and over 35 years in the making, the sidestripe has become the unmistakable hallmark of the Vans brand. Looking back on the 1980s, Steve van Doren remembers how popular customization was at that time. At that time customizing was super populair, what Vans offered as well. Collaborations became important for Vans in 1990. An example: collaboration between Vans Old Skool x Supreme. Later, the Vans Old Skool models were mainly worn by musicians. Later in 2010, Vans also started to appeal to the extreme athletes. Major skateboarders still wear these iconic models today. The Old Skool does what Vans does: grow with and celebrate the people who love the Vans on their feet.
