Vans Old Skool

The Vans Old Skool has been one of the most in-demand sneakers, so you've come to the right place to select your next pair.

The silhouette debuted in 1977 and has become the model that is most associated with Vans, back in '77 it was known as the Style 36. This was the first Vans model to be adorned with the side stripe on the lateral panel giving structural support to the canvas panelling. It’s a testament to the design that a product made up of simple colourways can still stir excitement.

In the 1980's the Style 36 become a canvas for customisation and wearer turned their canvas sneakers in a personal expression of themselves as they used paints and marker pens to customise each and every panel on the shoe. 

The 1990s was when the designer brands like Marc Jacobs and Supreme NYC identified the potential of the silhouette and wanted to be the first high-end brands to collaboration on their very own special make up (SMU) release.

The rich history of Vans Shoes continued to evolve into the 2000s as they become synonymous with US Punk bands like Slayer, Bad Religion and later Metallic. This opened up a new market and a huge new fan base that would fall in love with the Style 36. As we entered the current decade action sports were the latest movement to pick up the pro edition with the likes of skaters like Julian Stranger and BMX champs like Dakota Roche rocking this silhouette and putting it thru its paces on the skate parks and bowls across the globe. It's a versatile style to complement individual riders' aesthetics and a functional tool to their craft.

With Action Sports booming with the masses, by now this sneaker has developed cult appeal across many niches and it was the moment when it blew up globally for Vans as a business.
