Join Very.co.uk in celebrating the legacy of the Vans Sidestripe shoe!
The original action sports footwear and apparel brand begins Autumn Winter 2014 by celebrating its history of its famous Sidestripe. Starting nearly four decades ago, the Sidestripe started as a random doodle by Vans Founder – Paul Van Doren and is now featured on many silhouettes including its original: the Old Skool.
The Old Skool shoe may be seen as a ‘skater’s shoe’ but don’t be put off by thinking ‘Well I don’t skate?’ – Fashion is a lot more forward thinking in the realms of today and it’s cool to be different or enhance a style that reflects your creativity of thought, not just your hobbie.
Customization became super popular in the 1980s and this is what started the craze of colours, prints and fabrics to offer personalized Old Skool trainers that were unique to the customer. Today this still exits! We’re not talking about taking a crayon to your Vans trainers but the thought that goes behind each style and collection of Vans is always at the forefront of each design to be different within the market – offering you choice that suits you.
Be daring with a colourful animal print.
