Vans is a Californian brand of shoes and clothing, mostly skateboarding, created in 1966 by Paul Doren, James Van Doren and three other partners. All fans of sports, they have created a world of their own and make this brand mythical. Their first authentic model named "Vans # 44" was sold in a Californian store in 1966. Vans models have the distinction of being both simple and infinitely distinguished. Their desire was to create durable sports shoes that are both elegant and comfortable. Today, the brand shines after being bought by VF Corporation, thanks to the sponsorship of rock and skate icons and the development of a clothing line. Vans shoes become the symbol of a generation and are not only for skateboarders, but also for the general public. Their models now roam the streets, colleges and high schools, the simple shoe becomes a phenomenon comparable to other classics of the same era.
For the FW19 collection, the Californian brand is revisiting its ever-effective classics. There are striped patterns, pairs with an unstructured style. These sneakers will please the purists of the American brand.
