Vans want you to know that they were customising sneakers since before it was cool. The new Vans Customs platform continues a tradition started by the brand's founder way back in the 60s. Paul Van Doren prized customisation highly and would famously make unique pairs for anyone who came to him with a yard of fabric or a cool idea.
Authentics, Eras, Old Skools, Classic Slip-Ons, Sk8-Hi’s, Classic Lites, All-Weathers, and Pro Skates serve as blank canvases for your creativity. All you need to do is upload some original art, click a few buttons and wait 4–6 weeks for your pairs show up in the mail.
If you're yet to feel whacked with the inspiration stick, Vans have commissioned artists to get the cogs in your brain turning. Keen? Head here to get started.
