Born for skateboarding, loved by those who rock. It is no coincidence that Vans can boast among its "designers" Corey Taylor, the Slipknot vocalist. Its cult items express its style: Vans includes collections dedicated to the most famous rock bands: Iron Maiden, Sex Pistols, Motorhead and in 2008 it produced a slip-on limited edition dedicated to the Ramones guitarist. Vans, or rather the Van Doren Rubber Company, was founded as a manufacturer of skate shoes in 1966. Since 2012 it also produces clothing, always inspired by skateboarding.
