On March 16th, 1966, at street 704E Broadway, in Anaheim, California, Paul Van Doren and three partners opened up their first ever store and the Vans dream was born. The Van Doren Rubber Company was unique in that it manufactures shoes and sells them directly to the public. On that first morning, 12 customers purchase shoes which are made that day and ready for pick-up in the afternoon. The Vans #44 deck shoes, which is now known as the Authentic were born.
Everyone who’s ever been into a skate or street wear shop knows what Vans are. Originally producing shoes, their collections now include everything from apparel to accessories and here at trainers skateboarding we have just upped our vans collection.
