Vans 50th Anniversary 1966-2016

Hard to believe that nearly 50 years ago in a Anaheim, California, Vans opened its doors for the first time as a small family owned sports footwear brand. Half a century on and it’s one of the best known footwear brands in the world, worn by a variety of celebrities and even creating YouTube phenomenon’s out of small town school boys in America #DamnDaniel. Take a look at a few of our fave celebs back at it with the white vans over the past few years

Take a look at the first store and the original shoe maker
