Originally known as Van Doren Rubber Company, Vans is an American based manufacturer of sneakers, BMX shoes, snowboarding boots, and other shoe types catering primarily to the skateboarder/surfer/snowboarder youth market. They also sell apparel and accessories also catering to this same youth market. Paul Van Doren and three partners opened up their first ever Vans Shoe store on March 16th, 1966. This store was located in Anaheim, California. In the early 1970s, skateboarders were seen all over Southern California, sporting Vans. By the end of the 1970s, Vans was selling shoes through dealers both nationally and internationally.
During the 1980s, Vans Shoes began producing products for different sports such as basketball, baseball, and wrestling. These products did not sell very well, and in 1983, Vans was forced to file for bankruptcy. Three years later, Vans paid back all creditors and came out of bankruptcy. In 1994, Vans began manufacturing overseas and sponsored the Inaugural Triple Crown series which developed into the Vans Triple Crown series. In 1998, Vans Shoes opened a 46,000 square-foot, indoor-outdoor Vans Skate park at the Block in Orange County. In 2000 and 2001, Forbes recognized Vans as one of “America’s Best Small Companies." In 2004, Vans launched the Vans Customs on their website. This allowed customers to log onto the Vans Shoes website and design their own pair of Vans Slip-ons, mid-cuts, or high-tops. Now that you know a little bit of Vans History, its about time you get a new pair of Vans Shoes!
