When The Van Doren Rubber Company first opened
their doors in 1966, no one could have guessed the small
Southern California store would become the giant
success it is today. The Van Doren Rubber Company has
since transformed from a single shoe store into the
globally-recognized Vans brand. From early legendary
skateboarders to the average teen, Vans have been
loyally worn for over four decades. Paul Van
Doren, founder of Vans, believed that to accomplish
something you either have to ‘love it or leave it’and that
is exactly what he did. Van Doren shaped Vans into the
thriving brand it is today without losing touch of its
skateboarding roots or his passion for shoes.
The Vans Authentic Lo Pro is a skate-inspired classic just
for the ladies. It owes its timeless appeal to our signature
Authentic and features a special low profile that makes it
a staple in any closet. Perfect with jeans and a cool
tee, this winter the Authentic Lo Pro is available in
fresh, bold colours purple and chili, along with classic
favourites black and true white. Sporting a tough allcanvas upper with five pairs of metal eyelet
enclosures, the Vans Authentic Lo Pro caters for comfort
but doesn’t sacrifice style.
In 1966, the Van Doren Rubber Company opened up for
business in Anaheim, CA. Soon, Vans’ simple canvas shoes
became a staple at the beach and throughout the world.
Not long after, youngsters in Australia and around the
world found that Vans’ sticky gum rubber sole and sturdy
construction made the shoes perfect for skateboarding.
More than 40 years later, Vans still strives to create
durable footwear that allows the imagination to run wild.
The colourful new kicks from the Vans Classics Plus
collection will ensure you’re decked out for every occasion.
Vans Authentic is the classic lifestyle shoe for any
occasion that initially caught the eye of Orange County
skaters and surfers way back in 1966 that features the
signature waffle bottom and vulcanised sole.
