Vans old skool
Since the 1960s, skateboarders who like the rugged make-up and sticky sole have been seen sporting these shoes all over Southern California, and now the world. Started in Anaheim, California, the Van Doren brothers custom-made shoes on the same day they were ordered, right in their shop.
Brothers Paul Van Doren and Jim Van Doren along with partners Gordon Lee and Serge Delia open for business at 704 E. Broadway in Anaheim, Calif. on March 16. The Van Doren Rubber Company is unique in that it manufactures shoes on premises and sells them directly to the public.
On that first morning, 12 customers purchase shoes, which are made that day and ready for pick-up in the afternoon.
The name House of Vans is coined Early 70s Skateboarders who like Vans’ rugged make-up and sticky sole are seen sporting for the first time and is showcased on the windows of the Anaheim location.
Now a fashion statement, with stores in malls worldwide, they’re still popular with skateboarders and non-boarders alike.
Vans Classic Slip-Ons gain international attention and appeal when they are worn by Sean Penn in the film Fast Times at Ridgemont High in 1982.
Rise from the pits
Vans experienced financial hardship in the 80s, and ended up going bankrupt. They paid back every penny, and emerged better and stronger than ever.
How cool is Gimmie?
A little side-note, my husband used to go to the Van’s office and fix their telephones. He said it smelled terrible, like the rubber they use for the soles of the shoes. But, he got to experience that piece of Americana. So cool!
