Since 1966, Vans has been a staple of youth fashion, music and action sports. The cutting edge brand started out as The Van Doren Rubber Company founded by Paul and Jim Van Doren along with partners Gordon Lee and Serge Delia. Over the last 50 years Vans have been worn by everyone from skateboard legends Stacy Peralta and Tony Hawk, to Metallica and just about every band that has graced a stage. The Vans Off The Wall mentality continues to fuel youth culture and compelling styles while still maintaining their classic look. They are a long time partner and sponsor of the Vans Warped Tour and their legacy continues to inspire generations of skaters, artists, music fans, athletes and fashion designers.
