More About Vans

When you hear the word ‘Vans’, providing you’re not conjuring up mental images of transportation, you probably immediately think of a classic, low rise skate shoe with a distinctive stripe down the side. It’s these shoes that started the brand off and today can be found on the feet of almost anyone who enjoys a comfy flat trainer.

Vans isn’t the cheapest of brands but doesn’t sit within a premium range either (unless you’re a skateboarding professional looking to invest heavily in the proper equipment), so it’s a nice high street name you can rely on for quality and value. The Vans range now spans shoes of almost all sneaker types, as well as flip flops, sliders and some other sports specialist footwear, clothing and accessories; and tiny shoes for tiny people (or, you know, kids). All of the footwear is pretty easily identifiable as Vans due to the consistent branding throughout their collections, so if you spot a pair you like when out and about, you can be sure to find them through the brand.

Vans sell their ranges through their e-commerce website, bricks-and-mortar high street stores in major cities and shopping malls (currently 20 in the UK and a further 10 Outlet stores), and through a selection of third party footwear retailers such as Schuh, Sports Direct and Footlocker.

The thing about Vans is, although they’re not a budget brand, their shoes last for ages and the nature of their background as skate shoes means that they’re designed for scuffs, bumps and hard wear right from the off. That makes them firmly Student Discount Squirrel approved. There is a 10% student discount as standard on Vans products purchased through their primary website, but we don’t find often that this is the cheapest way to buy – we can do better! Check back here for the latest promo codes, voucher info and flash sale details, as well as the latest scoop on individual retailer’s discounts. Don’t assume shopping direct with Vans will be cheaper; we may be able to bag you a better bargain elsewhere!

History of the Brand
Back in 1944, Paul Van Doren dropped out of school and was pressured by his mother to get a job in place of his education. Starting out sweeping floors at Randy’s, a shoe manufacturer, Paul worked his way up through the business in a variety of odd jobs and at age 34, became Vice President of the whole company. He decided not long after that he’d like to own his own shoe brand, and alongside his brother, opened the Van Doren Rubber Company in Anaheim, California, producing rubber-soled shoes.

The shoes grew in popularity and the Vans logo we know and love today was actually initially produced by the son of one of the brothers, aged just 13. A graffiti-spray design that he used to decorated his own skateboard decks, it was first used on a custom pair of Vans shoes for him across the heel, and later integrated across the range to brand them. Still in place today, it demonstrates brilliantly a quirky part of the company’s history and its family orientation.

Vans was sold by the brothers in 1988 and has since been acquired by new owners again. Taking corporate know-how and aligning it with skateboard-related events and sports, the brand has grown to sponsor the Vans Warped Tour, the US Open of Surfing and hip-hop collective Odd Future, as well as a variety of skate parks and sport-specific competitions, festivals, and events.
