California-based and skate-inspired brand Vans made its initial debut in 1966 by Paul Van Doren and James Van Doren in Anaheim, California. Initially starting off as a rubber company that created shoes sold to the public, over the years, Vans gained widespread mainstream popularity in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. This was partially due to the rise of skate culture and the popularity of skateboarding. Over the years, Vans has established itself as a classic skate shoe style and has grown into a major brand with a wide range of footwear and apparel.
With that, Vans’ high-end division of the primary brand Vans Vault was first introduced in 2003. This line incorporates premium materials and features limited-edition designs. Some of these designs include the OG Authentic LX, OG Classic Slip On, Old Skool LX, OG Sk8-Hi LX, Authentic, and many more iterations of classic silhouettes. The inspiration behind the name ‘Vans Vault’ first comes from the word ‘Vault,’ meaning the idea of a secure place where valuable items are stored. In this case, these items are the premium Vans shoes and clothing that are part of the primary line. ‘Vault’ conveys the exclusivity and quality of these products.
Vans Vault sneakers are must-haves for any footwear collection, specifically sneakers. Not only are they known for their comfort and support, but Vans shoes arrive in a wide range of silhouettes that are suitable for any aesthetic. Vans Vault sneakers are durable, long-lasting, and have been long associated with various subcultures over the years, such as skateboarding and punk rock. These versatile shoes arrive once again at FEATURE in a new delivery. One restocked silhouette is the Vans Vault OG Old Skool LX - Black/True White. This signature design utilizes a blend of suede and canvas at the upper. Exposed contrasting stitching can be seen throughout, making an impression. The padded collars provide additional comfort. A rubber Vans label is seen at the heel, while additional branding can be seen at the insole. The vulcanized midsole fuses seamlessly to the outsole.
