Vans have long been a part of the casual American lexicon since its inception in 1966 in Anaheim, California. The rubber soles and checkered prints have stood the test of time and proved to be a timeless part of American fashion and a symbol of youth, spirit and attitude. This year Vans celebrates 50 years of business, and today Vans have become a staple among young Hollywood and the fashion set. Paired with everything from Baja East to Vetements and seen on models, celebs, and social media personalities alike. Vans seem to be a part of our everyday routines and worn during realest moments of our lives. Just ask Damn Daniel! I know I personally own five pairs myself.
