The Van’s Old Skool is an undeniably important aspect of the brand’s history, acting as a catalyst for its creative pursuit. To commemorate this, the shoe was the first to adopt the outfit’s well-known “side stripe,” denoting its commitment toward creative expression.
Today, the shoe remains one of Vans’ most notable styles, thanks to its durable suede and canvas uppers, variety of colorways, and attention to detail. Want to own a piece of Van’s heritage? This low-top, lace-up shoe is sure to remain as iconic as its 1977/1978 counterpart. It also features reinforced toecaps, supportive padded collars, and signature rubber waffle outsoles for modernized durability.
