In 1966 Paul Van Doren, James Van Doren, Gordon C Lee and Serge D'Elia started the shop The Van Doren Rubber Company. Vans was born. The logo was designed in 1970 by Mark Van Doren, a brother of Paul and James. Mark was 13 when he designed the logo. Since then, Vans has grown to become perhaps the largest skate brand on the market today. The switch to a skate brand was set around '98 in and around the skate scene of California at the time. Vans opened its own skatepark and opened several other skateparks in New Jersey, Virginia, Texas and Colorado. Vans has also paid a lot of attention to sponsoring skate / surf / snowboard events. That is how Vans - skate started to grow and become an iconic, global skate brand.
Old Skool Vans
One of the best known Vans items is of course the Vans Old Skool. In 1977 Vans produced for the first time Old Skools with the now well-known Vans Side-Stripe. The Old Skool is the first skate shoe from Vans that had leather inside the shoe for better durability while skating. The Vans line started out as a random design by Paul van Doren, but now a days it is must when it comes to Vans. The Vans shoes have become very popular: several celebrities like Robert Pattinson, Justin Bieber and Kristen steward wear the Old Skool sneaker. The different colors and styles of the shoe offer a choice for everyone. Moreover, the sneakers are both formal and informal to wear. Check the Vans collection here.
