Take California: Vans UA Old Skool 36 DX Anaheim
The Vans UA Old Skool 36 DX Anaheim pays tribute to their first location in Anaheim, California. This model, in particular, is built borrowing look-a-like details just like the first and original Old Skool released in 1977.
Sure, some specs may be rather small or unseen to the naked eye, but that is exactly what happens here. The Style 36 DX Anaheim delivers modernized comfort with upgraded UltraCush sock liner technology.
Remaining true to its DNA, the silhouette also displays some throwback specifics such as a higher glossed foxing tape, cotton laces, original drill lining weight, and suede and canvas uppers.
Perfect for the upcoming season, these look rad! Priced at only 85€, head over to MATE and get your pair before they sell out.
Vans Past and Present
Vans was created by Paul and Jim Van Doren with the help of Gordon Lee and Serge Delia. The brand opened its doors for the first time on March 16 in 1966 at 704 E. Broadway in Anaheim, California.
Their way of business was so avant-garde that during their first morning, 12 customers were already lined up to purchase shoes. They would be available for pick up that same afternoon.
In other words, the brand started by manufacturing shoes within their own factory and sell them directly to the public. Such new approach, at the time, created a long-lasting relationship between the shop itself and the clients.
Even if they came across a few bumps throughout the years, Vans is considered one of the largest footwear (and not only) companies across the globe. The Vans brand is linked to skate, BMX, surf, and many others sports.
Plus, the created silhouettes merge the best when it comes to casual and high fashion looks (that is right, you can now wear a pair of Old Skool with a suit). To conclude, we can say that there’s no brand like Vans.
The shoes are versatile as well as durable and timeless. You can never go wrong with a pair, believe it or not.
