Vans Classics: New Season Lookbook

Whatever the season, Vans always comes through with the classics.

Founded in 1966 by the Van Doren brothers, Vans’ footwear was adopted by skateboarders back in the ‘70s and has been repped on and off the board ever since.

Era & Sk8-Hi

Designed by Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta, the iconic Era silhouette dropped in ’76. It repped Vans’ iconic ‘Off the Wall’ logo for the first time – a staple on their sneaks over 40 years later! The Era was a must-cop for a whole generation of skateboarders.

Two years later in ‘78, Vans introduced the Sk8-Hi, their second sneak to sport the now-iconic Sidestripe. With a high-profile design that sits above the ankle, the Sk8-Hi changed the game, taking skate functionality to a whole new level…

Although the Sk8-Hi and Era silhouettes remain unchanged, Vans are constantly switching ‘em up with fresh fabrics and colourways.
