In 1966, the Van Doren Rubber Company opened for business in Anaheim CA. It wasn't long before Vans' simple canvas shoes were a staple at the beach and throughout Southern California. In the early 70's SoCal teens found Vans' sticky gum rubber sole and sturdy construction make the shoes perfect for skateboarding.

Almost 50 years later, Vans still drives to create durable footwear that allows the imagination to run wild. Those beach staples have evolved into a full line of Vans Classics that continue to pay homage to our surf and skate heritage.
