Think skateboarding – think Vans. Mixing skateboarding, street culture and timeless style, Vans shoes are the kicks of choice for skaters wanting hard wearing soles and iconic designs in one neat, foot-friendly package.
Vans footwear first entered the action sports arena with their iconic deck shoes. Now dubbed the Vans Authentic trainers, the Vans slip-on sneakers are one of the most recognisable in the range. Other vintage canvas kicks include the Old Skool with durable leather panels and the Era with a padded collar for added comfort.
The Vans checkerboard slip-on has become a cult classic over the years, donning the feet of rock stars, fashionistas and all-out cool kids since its conception in the early 80s. The look was started by punk-inspired teens colouring their Vans in to create the checkerboard look - talk about setting a trend! Checker Vans are now one of the most popular sneaker designs out there.
Whether you’re rocking your Vans pumps at the skate park or on the streets, keep the Vans vibe alive by getting creative with your self-expression. Pick up a pair of white Vans trainers and make your mark with some fly clothes and plenty of attitude. Whether you’re looking for something bold and bright, or keeping it classic with some black and white checkered Vans - you’re bound to find your perfect pair at Footasylum.
