Today, the Vans brand evolution continues- from its foundation as an original skateboarding company since '66, to a leading action sports brand, to defining its anthem of living 'Off the Wall' as youth culture. From its birthplace on the West Coast, Vans has grown beyond a shoe. It's a global movement- reaching from Barcelona to Beijing, Sao Paulo to Sydney, Orange County to New York.

Vans goes to market through its network of deeply rooted wholesale partners and its direct-to-consumer platform with more than 500 owned retail stores worldwide. Given this amazing platform to connect with consumers, we're constantly looking for better and more creative ways to amplify the brand's in-store presence. And equally strong is the Vans' extraordinary e-commerce and social media presence, inclusive of its digital video platform, OffTheWall.tv. Through its various online channels, Vans has access to over 14 million brand loyalists at any given time.

At Vans, providing consumer-focused product is essential and among perhaps one of the staunchest critics there is - the world's youth - the continued relevance and authenticity of Vans' product, whether performance-based or fashion-forward, must be in the right balance at all times. From weatherizing the head-to-toe collections to enhancing the durability of the performance based footwear, Vans is elevating the level of quality and technology and enabling active consumers everywhere to enjoy Vans through all four seasons.

We also believe it's important to deliver more than just great products. Vans supports the action sports lifestyle, youth culture and creative self-expression by promoting the sports, music, art and culture that matter most. The Vans team includes many top names in action sports including skateboarding legends Steve Caballero and Christian Hosoi, skate pros Geoff Rowley, Anthony Van Engelen, Gilbert Crockett and Tony Trujillo, BMX riders Dakota Roche and Scotty Cranmer, surfers Dane Reynolds, Nathan Fletcher, Joel Tudor and Leila Hurst and snowboarders Louri Podladtchikov, Andreas Wiig, and Hana Beaman.

Vans owns and sponsors world-class events in skateboarding, surfing, snowboarding and BMX including the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing®, the Vans Pool Party, the Van Doren Invitational and surfing’s most prestigious contest the Vans US Open of Surfing.

Vans supports original and creative music acts ranging from Band of Horses to Public Enemy to Turbonegro by bringing memorable shows to global audiences at the House of Vans roving music venue that echoes Vans’ Brooklyn-based cultural hub and to more than half a million fans each summer at the Vans Warped Tour, America’s longest-running music tour.
