Vans is one of the most famous brands specializing in the manufacturing of skateboarding shoes and even the first choice for many skaters. Of course, like many brands, Vans Ltd has not started its business in the field it is currently specialized in. Paul Van Doren, who abandoned his education because of his passion for horses, started to work in shoe manufacturer Randy's under the guidance of his mother. Paul Van Doren loved his job and managed to advance his career in the right direction. Young Paul, who swept the floors when he got a job, rose to vice president position. Paul Van Doren has succeeded in making Randy's one of the largest US shoe manufacturers with his innovative ideas.
In 1966, Paul Van Doren, James Van Doren, and Gordon C. Lee opened the first Vans store under the name The Van Doren Rubber Company, and the legendary brand was born. The shoes they offered for sale in the store they opened in Anaheim, California, were very much appreciated, and they started developing different models. Mark Van Doren, son of James Van Doren, one of the founders of the company, both designed the company's logo and inspired the decision that will determine the future of the company with his passion for skateboarding.
Skateboarding is a lifestyle, and commitment is high. This enables a brand to continue its success as long as it satisfies its users with the products it designs. Vans did this and designed shoes suitable for the ergonomics of skateboarding, as well as allowing skateboarders to say what they wanted to say with the designs of their shoes.
Skate shoes need to hold onto the skateboard well, and all points of the shoe sole must touch the skate evenly, which is what makes them special. Vans offers two different skate shoe collections because the physiological structures and tastes of women and men are different from each other. When you go to a skatepark, you can see that the skate shoes perform a parade with a variety of designs. Vans is one of the pioneers of this diversity.
Vans Skateboard Team includes many successful professional skaters. Vans also make exclusive designs for these famous skaters and place most of their skate shoes on the market with the names of skaters. It also develops skate shoes with feedback from these pro skaters. We have listed some of the skate shoes for men that Vans designed to maximize the performance of skaters and reflect their style in the best way. If you like the unique sound of skateboarding on the asphalt and want to fascinate your audience with artistic movements, you must have a high-quality skate shoe that reflects you.
