Timeless Skate Style
There’s nothing old when it comes to the Vans Old Skool, except how long this iconic skate shoe has been in style. One of the most popular models of all time from the famous California-based skateboarding and extreme sports shoe brand, the Old Skool has far surpassed its original status as a shoe designed for skateboarding to become a modern casual sneaker favorite for many. From skateboarders to fashionistas, the Vans Old Skool is loved for its clean, low-profile design, durability, and great comfort straight out of the box. The classic vulcanized Waffle sole from Vans offers excellent grip on or off the board, and a clean and simple no-nonsense style. The Old Skool is available in a wide variety of color and materials combinations, including all-canvas, all-leather, and graphic-printed options.
Packed with History
The Old Skool was the first sneaker from Vans to feature the now-iconic wavy side stripe, or the “Jazz Stripe,” as it’s officially called by the brand. The Old Skool debuted in 1977, and was originally named the “Style 36.” It was also the first Vans model to incorporate leather/suede paneling, which increased durability in comparison to the all-canvas styles from the brand. Utilized only as a skate shoe for core skateboarders at first, the Old Skool eventually found its way onto the feet on non-skaters strictly for casual use, and today the timeless design is more popular than ever. The Old Skool now ranks as one of Vans’ top-selling and most recognizable models of all time.
