About Vans: "Off the Wall" since '66

Vans was started in 1966 in Anaheim, California by brothers Paul and Jim Van Doren and two business partners. The 'Van Doren Rubber Company' manufactured and sold shoes directly to the public, and in early 1970's became the footwear of choice for a generation of skateboarders thanks to the shoe's thick and sticky sole. 'Off the Wall' - a term used when skateboarding in empty swimming pools, became the corporate logo for Vans and symbolises a shared vision for self-expression and creativity.

Decades on and Vans has become more than just a footwear brand, it's a leading action sports brand, with major industry investments including public skateparks, the Vans Warped Tour concert series, and the Vans Triple Crown Series that includes skateboarding, surfing, BMX, wakeboarding, snowboarding, motocross and more!

Can't figure out what size Vans to buy? It's simple really! Vans adult shoes are technically unisex and so are constructed to men's US shoe sizing. Men's sizing converts to 1.5 sizes larger for women, for example a men's US size 7 is equivalent to a women's US size 8.5. Check out Vans on our footwear size guide to discover your Vans footwear fit.
