When Vans opened for business in 1966, Paul Van Doren’s promise was to provide affordable, quality footwear for all. The original footwear model, the Authentic, was quickly enhanced to meet the demands of skateboarding as skaters of the Dogtown era adopted Vans’ sticky waffle sole to carve and surf the pavement. That organic partnership with those early innovators brought forth the introduction of the Era, Old Skool, Sk8-Hi and Classic Slip-On. These five silhouettes remain in the line today and are the DNA to the thousands of styles that have been designed and released since 1966.
