Vans Skate Shoes

vans-skate-brandThe humble Vans skate shoe is probably the most well know name when it comes to extreme sports lifestyle. It has one of the largest selections in footwear catering to urban lifestyle and beyond. Since their humble beginnings in 1966, they have moved into virtually every market, catering to men, women and children in a plethora of styles and uses.

Their casual shoes range from slip-ons to the iconic canvas lace-up shoes, designed for comfort and leisure but not lacking in quality for extreme activities, like kick-flipping 20-foot gaps. Though Van’s caters to footwear for every walk of life, in individualised styles and cutting-edge materials, they are still best known for being one of the leading brands in skate shoes.

While offering top quality, Vans also offers a range of price points that fit virtually any budget. On some lines they even offer the opportunity to create custom Vans shoes based on selections from a colour chart.
