ABOUT VANS

In 1966, the Van Doren Rubber Company opened for business in Anaheim, CA. Soon, Vans’ simple canvas shoes became a staple at the beach and throughout Southern California. Not long after, SoCal teens found that Vans’ sticky gum rubber sole and sturdy construction made the shoes perfect for skateboarding, making Vans the world’s first skate shoe company.

More than 40 years later, Vans still strives to create durable footwear that allows the imagination to run wild. Those beach staples have evolved into a full line of Vans’ Classics that pay homage to our surf and skate heritage.

To reinforce Vans' Classic heritage, the tagline “Classic &” introduces a new style or key story that comes from the tried-and-true Core Classics collection.

MEN’S KEY STORIES:
Vans x Metallica
With Vans’ deep roots in music and heritage as the original skate shoe maker, it only makes sense to work with a band as influential to action sports and youth culture as Metallica.

Classics and Hi-Tops
The hi-top category expands this season with 106 Hi joining ranks with the SK8-Hi. The 106 Hi builds off the popular 106 Vulcanized, with the addition of a slim narrow upper. The new style will be available in a wide material offering including chambray, wool and canvas. The SK8-Hi keeps its original colors while adding in denim and retro colorway options that are perfect for the spring season.

Classic & Authentic (Colors)
The Authentic has remained a collection staple since Vans’ 1966 inception. Authentics are seen everywhere; on skateboarders doing tricks at a local skate park, surfers on the way to the beach or musicians hitting the stage. The Authentic is a beloved style that can be found in closets across the globe.

Classic & Van Doren
The Van Doren Series continues this season featuring archived prints and patterns from the 80’s and 90’s. For spring the limited edition capsule includes a retro star and stripe flag, a vintage leopard print and the popular Hawaiian parrot collage. To top off the vintage look, a stonewash treatment was applied to slightly fade the prints with the original Van Doren heel tab on the back of the shoe.

Classic & Authentic Hi
Taking Vans’ original style to new heights, the Authentic Hi first hit the scene in holiday 2012 and is another addition to the Classics hi-top selection available just for women. The Authentic Hi is made with the same last as an Authentic with a slim upper and will be offered in solid and printed canvas for the spring season.

Classic & Slims
The Slim Classics collection continues to build off the fall 2011 introduction with a variety of color options available in the SK8-Hi Slim, Authentic Slim and Chukka Slim. The array of bright colors and prints fits in perfectly for any spring theme.

Classic & Prints
Whether it’s a guate print, leopard, florals or stars and stripes, Vans always provides footwear that satisfies a range of style palettes. This season is no exception with the wide variety of prints offered in the Women Classics collection.
