Sneaker trends may come and go, but you can always count on Vans to have your back and withstand the test of time. Founded in 1966, the cult sneaker brand has certainly come a long way in its 53-year history. Originally popularized by Southern California skateboarders who gravitated toward their grippy rubber soles, Vans are now touted as a go-to footwear choice among skaters and nonskaters alike because they make just about any ol’ outfit look instantly cool.
