Forty-two years ago, Neil Armstrong described his personal feat as “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” and eventually stamped it to our psyche. Little did he know that a then small American shoe brand called Vans predated him by three years as the first to take that giant step and leap for mankind-in the dynamic world of footwear.
Established in March 1966, Vans started out as Van Doren Rubber Company that manufactured and sold unique-looking deck shoes that took the youth market by storm. The rest is history—Vans would then evolve into the original action sports footwear company it is known today. Yes, Vans has taught and encouraged us to skate, surf, glide through snow, pursue BMX and now, take control the very authentic and individual sense of style we embody.
With the purest sense of innovation, Vans presents its OTW collection featuring five models: Alomar, Bedford, Larkin, Pritchard and Woessner. True to a very American heritage of relaxed style, Vans brings sexy back to skating with streamlined looks blending modern design and timeless craftsmanship. With the Vans heritage up and alive in this collection, our restlessly adventurous feet are once again up for good company. Skate your way to style. Style your way to skating. Either way, you should see yourself going places.
The Vans OTW collection is available at Vans Glorietta 3 and Greenbelt 3, Ayala Center, Makati
