Vans, a titan in the streetwear industry, is perhaps best known for its footwear line. This wide collection of high-tops, lowtops, and slip-ons is inspired by skate culture and has become a cultural icon in and of itself. After Sean Penn's character wore his own pair of Vans in the 1982 cult classic "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," the skate shoes took on a life of their own, and have since been worn in countless films and skate videos. Vans Footwear is not just for appearances—it's made to be worn, to withstand extreme abuse while maintaining maximum comfort. Many famous skaters, including Bucky Lasek and Christian Hosoi, have worn custom Vans—a testament to their versatility and practicality.
