Founded in 1966, in Anaheim, California, the iconic waffle-soled Vans’ sneaker has a unique story in that it was originally a deck shoe, recognised by skaters for their functionality. The waffle tread and vulcanised sole of Vans original Authentic shoe provided great board feel and grip. Vans also hits the surfing stage every winter with the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing. Running for over 30 years, this triplet of Hawaiian surf events continues a rich surfing heritage.
