Vans Shoes

Bring a skate grunge aesthetic to your ensemble with a pair of Vans shoes. Fans of the off-the-wall Californian brand love it for its mix of nostalgic and contemporary styling, with the famous black and white checkerboard slip-ons taking centre stage. We've got vintage-style sliders and contemporary lace-up options ideal for hitting the skate park and the streets.

The brand first skated onto the scene in 1966, when brothers Paul and Jim Van Doren began making rubber-soled deck shoes. The rugged design was an instant hit with local boarders in California, and today is hailed around the world as the original skate shoe. The iconic check pattern? That began as one of Paul's doodles, referred to as the jazz stripe, and was first printed on an upper in 1977. You'll find it in today's selection, including contemporary iterations in fresh colours. 

You'll also spot bright florals and rainbows adding a pop of colour against the signature black. Thick, white soles continue to dominate the range, and if you look closely, you'll spot the logo-branded fabric tape poking out from between the seams. Pick a pair of Vans trainers with an old-school look that oozes evergreen cool. For your mini-me, we've got Vans's kids' shoes with easy strap fastenings so they can pull on their favourite kicks with no trouble.
