Vans Mens Shoes
The first Vans store was opened in 1966 in Anaheim, California. It was founded by Mr Paul Van Doren and three of his business partners. Vans would manufacture their footwear and sell them directly to the public. The idea behind the first pair, the Authentic, was to design a pair of kicks that would be durable and outlast anything else in the market. The Vans Men’s Shoes range was born.
The moulds for the waffle soles were much thicker than all other shoes on the market with a much better, stronger canvas; using nylon thread instead of cotton. The designs became hugely popular with skaters, so they created the Old Skool. These were constructed with leather in the toe to further help prevent wear and tear. Then came the Skate High, with the padded sides and backing to help protect skaters’ ankles when their board took flight and the skater didn't!
With its classic skate styling, this timeless brand has always brought the perfect touch of cool to any outfit. At West Brothers we carry all the classics in the Vans Men’s Shoes range, from the Old Skool to the Authentic, as well as slip-ons and leather varieties. Always comfortable and instantly identifiable, these classic shoes can be worn every day and you know you'll always look good.

What Are Some Popular Vans Mens Shoe Styles?
You can never go wrong with a pair of Vans shoes for men. With their classic, versatile design that can go straight from the skate park out to dinner, there’s no reason not to invest in a pair. If you’re stuck on which style to dip your toes in, we’ve got some ideas for you.
The Vans Old Skool are Vans’ most-loved style – and for good reason. There's nothing the classic black and white shoe can't do. A must-have wardrobe staple, these Vans look great with jeans, chinos, shorts or joggers. If you want a little bit of extra height, there’s even a platform version!
If monochrome looks are more your thing, then feast your eyes on the black-on-black Vans Authentic. These black mens Vans shoes are one of their original styles and are one of Vans’ most iconic and recognised shoes. Simple in design, you can’t go wrong when styling these.
Are Vans Mens Shoes True to Size?
Yes! Men’s Vans shoes are all true to size, so you don’t need to stress about converting your normal shoe size into some other funky language or measuring system. Since they were originally made for the purpose of being a skate shoe, Vans have a slightly narrower fit and a pretty flat base, making them a comfortable everyday option.
If you’re unsure of your shoe size – or how to convert across different countries’ sizing – you can check out our size guide available on each product.
What Materials Are Vans Mens Shoes Made of?
The materials that Vans are made on depend on the shoe, as different styles sometimes vary in materials. However, a typical Vans shoe is most often made with a rubber outsole – also known as the bottom of the shoe. There’s also the signature waffle print on the bottom of the outsole, providing grip and support.
Vans almost always have a suede and canvas upper, giving it that casual, effortlessly cool look. They have a moisture-wicking lining, and some shoes such as the Vans Comfycush Old Skool even have a foam and rubber co-moulded construction, providing extra comfort and support.
How Should I Care for My Vans Mens Shoes?
Vans shoes are just as laid back and chill as the brand itself – it really doesn’t take much to care for them. While some people love the worn-in, well-loved look, others prepare to keep their Vans looking spick and span. If you’re part of the latter, here’s how to keep your shoes looking fresh and clean:
- Clean your shoes regularly with a soft brush or cloth to remove dirt and debris.
- Avoid exposing your shoes to direct sunlight for prolonged periods, as this can cause the colours to fade.
- If your shoes are made of suede, use a suede brush or eraser to gently remove any stains or scuffs.
- If your shoes have white rubber soles, use a white eraser to remove any scuffs or marks.
- Avoid machine-washing or tumble-drying your Vans shoes, as this can damage the materials and affect their shape.
Are Vans Mens Shoes Suitable for Skateboarding?
Vans are not only suitable for skateboarding, they actually have a long history as an iconic skating shoe. The company ha designed many shoes for the purpose of hitting the rink, and many of their classic styles such as the Old Skool and Sk8-Low, have become iconic in the skateboarding community.
Vans shoes are known for their durable construction, grippy rubber soles, and comfortable fit, which make them ideal for skateboarding. Additionally, many professional skateboarders have endorsed Vans shoes over the years, further cementing their reputation as a top choice for skateboarders of all levels. So if you’re on the hunt for some fresh new skate shoes, Vans are absolutely the go-to.
