Vans…Not just for Skaters Anymore

Vans came onto the scene in the 1970’s, courtesy of skateboarders and BMX bike riders. They favored the slip-on shoe for their non-slip, grippy sole.  Today, Vans have crossed over to the non-skater community to become a stylish, easy street look…with a little edge.

They are the perfect travel shoe: comfortable, and easy to slip on and off in the security line.

The classic checkerboard slip-on gives this look an old school edge.
