Achieving a lifespan of 50 years at the top of the world of skateboarding and action sports is no mean feat, and although other companies have crumbled around them, Vans have continued to soldier on with their core focused, classic vision.
In celebration of this birthday, Vans have created a collection inspired by their esteemed history, focused on the historic shoes that have helped them shape who they are today. We sat down with Vans Collector, enthusiast and store owner Henry 'Pillowheat' Davies to discuss comparisons between the old & new.
The collection consists of five styles all together, four of which are classics from the Vans roster that you'll be instantly familiar with, Slip-On, Sk8-Hi, Old-Skool and Authentic. The fifth is the Prison Issue which is a new addition to our shelves here at size?, using velcro fastening instead of your standard lacing system.
The entire Vans Vault OG Collection
is available online and in selected size? stores now.
