History of Vans
Paul Van Doren dropped out of intermediate school when he was 14, after realising that he doesn't like being at school. Paul's mother obviously didn't like the idea of him dropping out of the school so she forced him to get a job at Randy's, a shoe manufacturing company. When Paul started working in the company, he was mostly sweeping the floors and helping to make the shoes. After a couple of years, he became the executive vice president of the company. He was great at his job and Paul realised he can do more than that.
In 1966, Paul and his brothers decided to open their own shoe brand as Paul's experience and passion led to this since the very beginning. The new Vans brand offered quality products for a reasonable price in three interesting design variations. The shoes got popular quite fast and thee brand recognition increased rapidly.
Nowadays, Vans is one of the most famous brands all around the world, not only in skateboarding. Vans is sponsoring several events, festivals, and competitions all around the world. The brand is also trying to bring what is needed for the skateboarding culture and Vans Team works hard on improving the whole skateboarding experience. Vans is mostly popular for its classic Vans skateboarding shoes and other related apparel such as Vans t-shirts and Vans hoodies.
