Vans

In 1966, the Van Doren Rubber Company opened for business in Anahiem, CA.

While Vans was stitching together its first soles, kids all around

Southern California were discovering all the crazy things you could do on surf and skateboards and found Vans sticky waffle grip was perfect fit for skateboarding.

Vans has evolved beyond surf and skate sensibilities to draw influence from a Southern California culture that is as diverse as it is progressive.
