Inspired by the west coast skate culture and the overall skateboarding lifestyle, the sneaker label Vans Vault was established by brothers Paul Van Doren and Jim Van Doren in 1966 in Southern California. The brand was originally given the name ‘The Van Doren Rubber Company,’ and was later renamed to ‘Vans.’ Vans Vault came around in 2003 as a sub label in order to continue offering classic Vans styles paired with unique collections and colorways inspired by contemporary street culture, art, music, surf, and skate culture. Vans Vault has pulled from over 40 years of classic Vans designs and silhouettes, such as the iconic OG Authentic LX, OG Classic Slip-On, OG Old Skool LX, OG Sk8-Hi LX, and more.
Classic Vans Vault restocked styles include the Vans Vault OG Sk8-Hi LX. Composed of a blend of suede and canvas in the upper, this eclectic design is an iconic Vans Vault silhouette and is seen throughout wardrobes worldwide. The design spotlights detailed stitching throughout the exterior, with contrasting branding seen woven at the tongue label and stamped at the heel. The padded collar offers a comfortable touch, while the vulcanized midsole and gum rubber waffle outsole wrap up the remainder of the design. Another iconic restock includes the Vans Vault OG Classic Slip-On Checkerboard. Considered to be one of the brand’s most coveted designs, the slip-on silhouette takes on a canvas upper that is proudly displaying an all-over checkerboard print. The standard vulcanized midsole and gum rubber waffle outsole provide durability. The padded collar and heel provides further detail, while the woven Vans flag label at the seam paired with the branding at the heel make an impression.
Also known for their notable footwear collaborations, some available Vans Vault collaborations include ones with Perks and Mini and Brain Dead. With that, one of Vans Vault’s latest singular brand arrivals include the Vans Vault OG Epoch LX Pig Suede. Featured in a handful of colorways, this premium sneaker is perfect for upgrading a fall footwear collection. The design includes a pig skin suede upper for durability and added detailing. A leather heel tab makes an appearance along with a contrasting leather epoch stripe seen at the side panels. The detailed stitching adds further detail along with the lace-up closure which offers a secure fit. A woven Vans label is seen at the rear, in addition to further branding at the heel. The classic vulcanized midsole connects seamlessly to the gum rubber waffle outsole for a finished look. In addition, another arrival is the Vans Vault OG Authentic LX Checkerboard Mecca.
