VANS: From The Old Skool to Now

The Vans legacy can be traced all the way back to 1966 and was originally known as The Van Doren Rubber Company. It was unique in that it manufactured shoes and sold them directly to the public.  On the first morning of trade, 12 customers bought shoes which were made that day and ready for pick-up in the afternoon. The Vans #44 deck shoe, which is now known as the Authentic was born.


The brand’s ethos and skate legacy has allowed them to stay ahead of the curve without abandoning their authenticity. Closely associated with music, Motocross, surfing and snowboarding, Vans’ popularity with celebrities continues to grow with A-listers like Kendall Jenner, Justin Bieber and even North West rocking them on the red carpet.

With their trademark waffle sole and canvas uppers firmly locked in, this Californian Brand are also still pushing design and innovation boundaries. You’ll find all your favourite Vans kicks at JD, like Old SkoolSk8-Hi, Slip-OnAuthentic and Platform with loads of exclusive to JD colourways!
