"From sidewalk to catwalk" - The Vans brand is known worldwide and the Vans Old Skool, Authentic or Sk8-Hi models are now conquering not only skater tracks, but also the catwalks of all fashion capitals. In 1966, brothers Paul and Jim Van Doren founded the "Van Doren Rubber Company" with the idea of producing a particularly slip-resistant boat shoe. But it wasn't just boat owners who took a liking to the shoes. It was rather the skateboarders who were enthusiastic about the non-slip rubber sole. Thus, the Vans became the cult shoe among skateboarders. Even today, the timeless models are still popular - and not only in the skater scene.
Unfortunately, the popularity of the Vans brand also leads to more and more Vans counterfeit products and Vans fakes being offered.
