A brand that has become synonymous with skateboarding.
Started in 1966 as the Van Doren Rubber Company, a factory that sold shoes direct to the public at an affordable and accessible price. Skateboarders quickly took note of the low price and super sticky rubber soles and by the mid-70s Vans was known by every Southern-Califorian skater. Through the 80s Vans became the number one skating shoes releasing numerous new models and their first signature pro-model shoes(for Steve Caballero). If you want skate shoes, you can’t go wrong with Vans.

For Anthony Van Engelen, “Good enough” isn’t good enough—he’s barely satisfied with great. He’d only put his name on the most uncompromising, technically advanced skate shoe we’ve ever made, so you can imagine how demanding the design process was for his new signature shoe, the AVE Pro. Featuring combined DURACAP and RapidWeld no-sew technology with our LuxLiner inner linings for the optimum fit and durability, the AVE Pro is grounded on our new UltimateWaffle construction to create the best skate shoe worthy of its name. It also includes RapidWeld, suede, and mesh uppers, and Vans’ Original Waffle Compound outsoles for superior board control.
