Vans is a leading footwear brand and does an excellent
job with youthful fashion as well. The story goes back
to the 1960's and has continued to develop year after year
with interesting new trends.
In 1966, Brothers Paul Van Doren and Jim Van Doren along with partners
Gordon Lee and Serge Delia open for business at 704 E. Broadway in
Anaheim, Calif. on March 16. The Van Doren Rubber Company is unique in
that it manufactures shoes on premises and sells them directly to the
public. The name House of Vans is coined Early 70s Skateboarders who
like Vans' rugged make-up and sticky sole are seen sporting for the first
time and is showcased on the windows of the Anaheim location.
In 1976, The Vans #95, now known as the Era, with a padded collar and
different color combinations, is designed by Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta
and becomes the shoe of choice for a generation of skateboarders.
Also, the Vans' "off the wall" logo makes its debut.
Vans #36, the Old Skool, debuts with the now famous Vans Sidestripe.
The Old Skool is Vans' first skate shoe that incorporated leather panels
for increased durability. What started as a random doodle by Paul Van
Doren was originally referred to as the "jazz stripe" and has become the
unmistakable hallmark of the Vans brand.
