Vans is an American manufacturer of skateboarding shoes, based in Costa Mesa, California, owned by VF Corporation. The company also produces apparel and other products such as t-shirts, hoodies, socks, hats, and backpacks. When The Van Doren Rubber Company first opened their doors in 1966, no one could have guessed the small Southern California store would become the giant success it is today. The Van Doren Rubber Company has since transformed from a single shoe store into the globally-recognized Vans brand. From early legendary skateboarders to the average teen, Vans have been loyally worn for over four decades. Paul Van Doren, founder of Vans, believed that to accomplish something you either have to ‘love it or leave it’ and that is exactly what he did. Van Doren shaped Vans into the thriving brand it is today without losing touch of its skateboarding roots or his passion for shoes.

         A random doodle by Paul Van Doren would turn to be the signature staple of the Old Skool, originally called Style 36. Paul Van Doren called the doodle his ‘Jazz Stripe’ and it became Vans’ signature mark in 1977.

         Skateboarders like Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta were the first to use the phrase ‘Off The Wall’. The story behind the phrase is, Alva and Peralta were at the Santa Monica Vans store talking about the time Tony Alva was skating in an empty pool and while still gripping his skateboard, Alva and his board went airborne above the pool’s edge. Skip Engblom, founder of the Zephyr Competition Team, said, “Man, you just went off the wall!” It would become an iconic phrase for Vans and the company started using it on their shoes. Skateboarders were able to differentiate which styles were skate-specific by the ‘Off The Wall’ logo.
