Vans Honours Five Foundational Footwear Classics With ‘Not Just One Thing’
Fashion 1y

Vans have become known for their timeless and versatile arsenal of classics, which have become style staples everywhere from skate bowls to hardcore shows to runways – and they honour their five foundational models with the new ‘Not Just One Thing’ campaign.

Vans kicked it all off in 1966 with the Authentic, and the shoe quickly became a favourite for skaters of the Dogtown days. Still to this day, just about everybody has owned a pair of the light and beautifully simple Authentic, which then made way for Vans’ other classics to hit the shelves.

The Vans line was given a little more cushioning with the Era, gained an iconic stripe with the Old Skool, grew a little taller with the Sk8-Hi and lost its laces with the Slip On. These five foundational sneakers have now been remixed with countless spin-offs and upgrades over the past 50 years, and have served as a canvas for collabrations from Opening Ceremony to Odd Future.
