The most Californian brand in our portfolio still exudes an incomparable joie de vivre more than 50 years after its founding. Originally started as a regular shoe company, skaters quickly got excited about the first style from Vans, which would later become the classic "Authentic". Shortly thereafter, the Old Skool was the first Vans sneaker with the company's own logo on the side, which finally cemented the company's recognition value. When the movie "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" starring Sean Penn hit theaters in 1982, Vans became known to a much wider audience. The checkered slip-ons sported by the main character became the object of desire of an entire generation overnight. Currently, the brand is enjoying renewed popularity and the Vans Old Skool with its sleek shape is more in demand than ever. With the Anaheim Factory collection, Vans is releasing an edition that is closer to the originals from the 70s in terms of color and shape, thus ensuring the perfect vintage flavor. Imaginative updates on the upper have now become the trademark of Vans sneakers, so that in addition to the classics, surprising specials are always at the start.
