What started out in a small storefront in Southern California in the late 1960s is now a global empire of youthful skate style. Vans shoes have gone from a symbol of counterculture to a big part of the culture, appearing on the feet of professional skateboarding pioneers Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta in the 1970s and the tons of bands who play the Vans Off The Wall sponsored Warped Tour each year to this day.
Vans skate shoes defined the era of the 1970s, when professional skateboarding really took off with the Z-Boys from Dogtown, Venice Beach, California. Stacy Peralta and Tony Alva, two of the pioneers of professional skateboarding, designed their own high top sneakers for Vans, preferring the grippy rubber outsoles of the shoes Vans made, along with the stylish canvas looks. Surfers, skaters and professional BMXers to this day sport Vans slip ons and sneakers, making the statement that these shoes from the underground still have that level of cool even as they've hit the mainstream. When Vans began, only a few different styles existed, in simple colors like black, white and red, and high top and low top silhouettes. But now, along with classics like the Atwood, Vans has a wide array of looks for men, women, and kids. At Famous Footwear, you can get all the latest looks at great prices.
