From cult status to international acclaim

Vans clothing was first designed for those who love to skate, but it wasn't long before the whole world realised just how cool the brand was. Now people the world over wear Vans clothing for both fashion and sportswear.

The brand first opened up in 1966, and by the mid-1970s, their shoes were the most popular choice for skaters. It was the tacky rubber sole that made them so good for gripping a skateboard. Word spread quickly, and before long, Vans began to branch out, and produced shoes and Vans clothing for other sports, such as motor cross and surfing.

The brand has been such a success, it was recently voted as one of the USA’s best small companies, and is well loved by those who wear it.

The Extreme Sports Star’s Choice

The range is now huge, and alternative sports stars from all over the planet wear Vans clothing, whether it be on a skateboard, BMX or snowboard. Vans clothing is known for being effortlessly cool, while maintaining all of the design qualities needed to be used as sportswear.
