The Van Doren Rubber Company first appeared in 1966 and their hard-wearing, unpretentious sneakers soon became a runaway success on the skating scene. If you ask us, Vans perfectly encapsulates the contemporary, casual lifestyle of its home state of California, USA.
The Vans Steve Caballero
The brand is perhaps most well-known for its iconic Vans Steve Caballero sneaker, a slice of skating history that was first launched in 1988. Never going out of fashion, the model’s ubiquitous chessboard patterning is instantly recognisable.
