In 1966, the Van Doren brothers, along with two partners, opened the Van Doren Rubber Company in Anaheim, California, which manufactured shoes on the premises and sold them directly to customers. You may not recognize the name of the rubber company, but you know the modern-day iteration — Vans footwear. Whether you’re looking for casual street-style shoes or you’re a serious skateboarder, let Hibbett Sports hook you up with retro styles offering superior grip. In the 1970s, skateboarders discovered the shoes, purchasing them for their rugged aesthetic and sticky soles, which hugged the board. Over the years, Vans has collaborated with athletes and rock stars alike. Just like the durable shoe style, the Vans brand has continued in its popularity; the company celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2016. Grab a piece of the Vans action and a pair of those iconic sticky soles at Hibbett Sports. Browse our selection online or in stores.
