About Vans
In 1966, the Van Doren Rubber Company opened up for business in California.

Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

March 16, 1966, on 704E Broadway street in Anaheim, California, Paul Van Doren and three other partners opened their first ever store and the Vans dream was born. The Van Doren Rubber Company was unique in that it manufactured shoes for sale directly to the public. On that first morning, 12 customers purchased shoes which were made that day and ready for pick-up in the afternoon, the Vans #44 deck shoes, which are now known as the Authentic, were launched. These classic Vans combined canvas uppers with thick-bottomed vulcanised soles – a distinctive style that became the signature look of the company. From this starting point over 40 years ago, Vans has risen to become a worldwide dominant force in the footwear and action sports markets, making it the brand of choice for the contemporary consumer seeking action sport and lifestyle footwear.

It's no wonder that these shoes have been around for so long, they are classic! These shoes are very supportive and they look excellent, too. I was worried when I first wore them because they hurt my heels, but I found a solution. Instead of lacing them all the way to the top, leave the top holes free. They no longer hurt and they are so comfortable! I can't recommend these enough!

Fantastic old skool skate shoes, I went for the black shoe with a white stripe down the side and I think they look great. They are very well made and perfect if you are not so keen on the fat tongues on other skate shoes. Very comfortable to wear and I have had mine for ages and they are still in great condition - so hard wearing.

Vans make great shoes. However, over the years, and I've been wearing Vans for 12 years or more, the quality and attention to design has become more mass market than specialist. My first pair were supremely comfortable and even my podiatrist was pleasantly surprised with the support they gave my feet. Unfortunately I can't say the same for the latest offerings from Vans. Although comfortable and light with good grip, they just don't seem as supportive or with enough cushioning to the sole to rave about them the way I used to. I'm glad I bought them. They look good and I expect after a few weeks they'll bed in to my feet and feel more comfortable. Overall a good buy. But I expect that from Vans. One slight niggle. The tongue on the left shoe (and curiously, the tongue on the right shoe of my other pair) seem to work their way to the side of my foot after a couple hours. No big deal. It's just annoying.

MUCH cheaper than on the high street and looks the same! Good product, real brand! Vans have always been a good causal trainer.

These Vans are not that comfy for me. When I wear them in the house they're fine but when I go outside I feel EVERY lump, bump and even tiny little stones. To begin with the squeaked but after walking around for a week or so they stopped but they are SO uncomfortable, other reviews state that they forget that the have them on - HOW ??? I mean walking down a hill or up it changes the way they they feel making them even MORE uncomfortable.

I was really looking forward to wearing them but now after a whole year I think I've only worn them outside 20 -25 times, great indoors but this is not why I bought them. there is very little in the way of support for your feet. The sole is flimsy the upper little better, I've tried tying the tighter, tried an insole, tried thicker socks but nothing makes takes away the feeling of what I'm walking on pavement wise. :(

Admittedly, I have been using Salomon trainers and I know that there is difference between the two manufacturers, but still, I should be able to feel tiny stones as I walk with Vans, so unfortunately I can't give more stars or a more positive review.

I first fell in love with these Trainers when I saw all my favourite Hardcore Punk Bands seemed to be wearing them, so I ditched my Converse (not completely!) and bought these Vans, I got the Black ones with the White stripe.
I absolutely love them! They're comfortable, they look fantastic and they're even great in bad weather! These Trainers have made me an avid Vans Trainers collecter, I love all the different colours they come in and can't wait to get some Purple ones!
The only downside to these bad-boys is that when I first got then, I really had to pan them in pretty quick because as new Shoes they really hurt my Feet, after that though it's all plain-sailin'!! Get some!

I bought the classic Old Skool black with white stripe and have to say I love them. I have been in love with Vans shoes since my childhood, and getting these was something long overdue.

They are comfy to wear, even at the beginning. Although the break-in process might sometimes differ from person to person, these normally take 1/2 weeks to get adjusted to your feet.

I use these as casual wear, I haven't skated in 4 years, but they make me want to pick up my board again.

All in all, a great purchase if you're into the old school looking kicks.
