The Van Doren brothers opened their eponymous store in 1966, in Southern California. The brand has continued to grow in popularity and is now recognised internationally. Specialising in manufacturing vulcanized shoe soles, built for endurance, Vans has become a firm favourite among the skateboarding community. The label has since branched out, now offering men's and women's apparel and accessories alongside their famous footwear. Vans totes are colourful and show a flair for fun, featuring designs such as camo prints and rainbow stripes.
