In 1966, Vans’ simple canvas shoes became a staple throughout Southern California, mainly because of their stable and sturdy construction which made the shoes perfect for skateboarding. More than 45 years later, Vans still strives to create durable footwear for those that value quality and freedom of expression. For spring 2014, Vans presents its now classic Old Skool design, in a variety of patterns and colors for men and women. First up, is the Golden Coast collection, sporting colors inspired by the original Vans color palette from the late 60s and 70s featuring the iconic sidestripe.
