Vans shoes

From Wikipedia

Vans is a Southern California-based manufacturer of sneakers, skateboarding shoes and other shoe types catering primarily to the skateboarder/surfer youth market.


1st vans factory
Originally known as Van Doren Rubber Company, Vans was founded on March 16, 1966 by Pauul Van Doren, Jim Van Doren (Brother), Serge D'Elia (Investor based in Japan), and Gordy Leeon 704E Broadway in Los Angeles, CA.
At first, Vans shoes were produced in the store, decades later American production of Vans shoes ended in July 1995. Vans began taking custom orders when people wanted different color schemes on their shoes. In the beginning, Vans designed their shoes with a diamond tread. Later on, the middle part of each shoe cracked and fell apart during heavy use, prompting Vans to add vertical lines in the tread to increase strength, friction and grip. The tread was officially named the "waffle-sole."
Today, Vans works heavily in the
surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, urban and punk markets. The brand has also become popular over the last two years after re-introducing their much-loved slip-on. They have also marketed additional items such as clothing and skateboarding accessories.

Music scene
Kevin Lyman proposed to Vans, a music tour nationwide while Steve Van Doren wanted to do a skateboarding competition nationwide which then became Vans Warped tour with its first appearance in 1995 at the Hard Rock Cafe in Newport Beach, CA
In recent years, the bay area
hip-hop scene has begun to show interest in the brand, which has been popularized by the hip-hop group The Pack. The punk / ska band The Suicide Machines wrote The Vans Song as a tribute to the brand, and the rap group The Pack followed suit with their song, Vans.
In 2008, Vans - along with
Relentless and Rock Sound - sponsored the UK tour of American supergroup *shels.
