Vans are one of those brands that everyone has heard of. More often than not, we all probably have a pair or two growing up. They’re a reliable, ‘cool’ sneaker. But where did the legacy begin?
Brothers Paul Van Doren and Jim Van Doren started their sneaker journey in 1966 alongside a couple of partners — Gordon Lee and Serge Delia. They opened their first store — The Van Doren Rubber Company — in March, located in Anaheim, California. What helped them stand out was the fact that they made and sold their shoes on-site.
They made reliable shoes, but in the early 1970s, the brand broke out as a popular choice for the local skateboarding community. This is where the cool factor was born, especially with the creation of the Vans #44 Deck Shoes. Today, these are known as The Authentic.
Sticky soles made these shoes ideal for skateboarding, and that’s where the ‘House Of Vans’ was born and raised. This popularity quickly grew as the brand experimented with new designs, styles and variations.
As popularity in SoCal grew, so did the brand’s confidence. The creation of the Vans #95 solidified Vans’ place in the industry and established the brand as the new, cool kid on the block. And they weren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
The mid-1970s is also when the Vans logo ‘Off The Wall’ hit the market.
As the years continued, Vans never truly went out of style. They continued collaborating with creators and even partnered with The Warped Tour to continue pushing its rugged, cool vibes.
Looking back, it’s very clear what route this sneaker brand took in establishing itself in the industry. It stuck closely to its youthful routes, embracing an emerging and shifting youth culture. It never backed down and it never gave up.
Go to your nearest mall — we’re sure you’ll see a good chunk of the population sporting these kicks. And we can’t blame them!
An iconic and well-known performance brand, Adidas has always been a major player in the sneaker world.
The performance powerhouse was founded by Adolf “Adi” Dassler in Herzogenaurach, Germany way back in 1949. And ever since, its reach and popularity have grown exponentially.
While Adidas was always known as a reliable brand, it wasn’t always seen as iconic and exceptional. And they were trying, sponsoring celebrities and rolling out a companion apparel catalog. But all of that changed in 1969 when the brand released its “Superstar’ shoes.
These shoes exist today — and they’re hard to miss. This low-top basketball sneaker is fashioned with the iconic three red stripes along the side which pops from the clean, white surface. Now, you can find these shoes in an array of colors.
Another major success for the company came when it collaborated with Kanye West. “Yeezy’s” have become infamous, and they’ve helped skyrocket Adidas to true success.
At the end of the day, Adolf Dassler fulfilled his dream. He put everything he had into this company, and we all still wait anxiously to see Adidas’ latest new releases.
Here’s to many, many more years.
