50 + years of design heritage and five classic icons
Vans are Not Just One Thing and neither are you. Whether you're a musician, artist or photographer, skater, drummer or painter, Vans understand that it's the creative things you do to express yourself that makes you distinctly you.
With more than 50 years of "Off The Wall" design heritage, Vans honours the legacy of its five Classic icons - Authentic, Era, Old Skool, Sk8-Hi and Classic Slip-On - showing the original action sports brand is Not Just One Thing.
Classics are a blank canvas for anyone's creativity, simple and timeless, they are at home anywhere, from the curb to the runway, and they go with anything from denim to designer.
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.
The Authentic, Era, Old Skool, Sk8-Hi and Classic Slip-On serve as a blank canvas that transform within an individual's creative self-expression. Whether its skateboarding, exploring, sketching or just showing off your personal style, Vans Classic Icons live through all forms of creativity. Those who live and wear Vans Classics are Not Just One Thing.
