Vans' history dates back to 1966, when brothers Paul and Jim Van Doren, along with their friends Gordy and Serge, opened the doors of the Van Doren Rubber Company at 704 East Broadway in Anaheim, California. Paul's 20-year career at Randy, a shoe factory located in his native Boston, the industry knowledge necessary to create his own shoe brand from scratch.

One of the hallmarks of the Vans brand is its vulcanized rubber construction, highly praised by skaters for its superior grip and support when on the board.
