About VANS

Vans is an American manufacturer of skate shoes and related apparel, headquartered in Anaheim. California, and owned by VF Corporation.

The company also sponsors surfing, snowboarding, BMX, and motocross teams. From 1996 to 2019, the company was the title sponsor of the annual Warped Tour music festival.

There is also a shortage of metal and rubber. Which has delayed the production of new vehicles. Causing an imbalance between supply and demand.

The lack of new vans means more business owners are focusing on buying pre-owned vehicles, the price of which has risen significantly since 2020.

Why were Vans so popular?

Throughout its rise, Van was built with the support of local skaters and customers. The brand’s reliance on waffle soles and canvas construction catapulted the mission the Van Dorens bravely set for themselves, providing loyal skaters with low-profile comfort and sticky traction.
