Vans is a Californian footwear company founded by Van Doren brothers James and Paul in Anaheim in 1966. Early on, the founders focused their energy on skate shoes and created their Hi-Top, the first model designed primarily for skateboarders. Vans recognized very early the need to involve professional skateboarders in product development. Legendary pros like Stacy Peralta and Tony Alva worked on the first models, such as the Vans Era.
Around 1976, the now very famous "Off the Wall" logo was created. Vans shoes convinced skateboarders even then because of the look and the flat, grippy sole (Waffle Sole). In the 70s, the Vans Old Skool shoe and the Slip On were produced for the first time, which are still among the most popular models and are available in all imaginable color combinations.
Anyone who chooses to buy an Old Skool, Sk8-Hi or Slip On today will get some nostalgia with a high level of technical and qualitative performance. The Classics were of course always improved and upgraded specifically for skateboarders. Many models are available specifically as skate versions, so you should pay attention to the appropriate description before buying. At Freedom Skateshop you will only find models from Vans' skate line, as these differ significantly from conventional Vans sneakers in terms of durability and quality. In addition to the previously mentioned classics, you can also find Vans pro shoes, like the Rowan, AVE, or Berle. One of the most legendary shoes is the Vans Half Cab by skate legend Steve Caballero.
The Vans team is made up of legendary skateboarders and current top pros as well as a variety of Ams and local teams. Next to legends like Andrew Reynolds, Steve Caballero and Christian Hosoi, young pros like Elijah Berle, Kyle Walker, AVE, Lizzie Armanto, Tyson Peterson or Rowan Zorilla represent Vans.
At Freedom Skateshop you can always find all classic Vans, from Sk8-Low to Slip-ons, as well as Pro Models and Limited Editions.
