Where would skateboarding be without the influence of Vans? Vans has been Off the Wall since 1964. It is now four decades later and nothing has changed. Vans continues to lead the way with their evolution of styles and models, plus continuing their heritage with classics like the Old Skool and Authentics. Many companies have tried to copy Vans, but without success. At a time when every company is trying to emulate these styles, skateboarders keep going back to the original. Nothing is as OG as a vulcanized, waffle grip sole!
