Vans: Skate Born, Street Made

In 1966, the Van Doren brothers teamed up with Gordon Lee and Serge Della to create kicks that’d become legendary.

Since then, though, these iconic sneaks have transcended the skate subculture and are the crep choice of sneakerheads across the world.

Sometimes, it’s best to take something that’s great, and then make it better. Refining greatness is exactly what the Vans Knu Skool is all about.


First hitting the scene in the ‘90s, the Knu Skool was influenced by a time when skate shoes were extra puffy.


Whether you’re on your board or on the street, the padded ankle collar and tongue ensure your feet are always feeling snug with a premium vibe.


Staying true to their roots but adding a twist is the hallmark of a Vans shoe. To achieve that, the famous Sidestripe gets a 3D revamp to add to the overall chunky aesthetic.


With loads of colourways available in men’s and women’s sizes, scroll through the collection here and level up your look.

Staying With a ‘90s Vibe

The Speed LS is a lesser-known silhouette that’s been reimagined to freshen up a design from the Fall 1998 Women’s Skate range.


For breathable wear, they feature a mesh upper with suede overlays to offer a supportive feel with every stride.



However you choose to flex them, you can be confident that they’ll be tough enough for the job.
