Vans
With their youthful vibe and non-slip bottoms, Vans shoes have been favored among skateboarders and sub-cultures for decades. Founded in March of 1966 by Paul and James Van Doren, Serge Delia, and Gordon Lee as the The Van Doren Rubber Company, the brand gained steady popularity— by the end of the 1970s, 70 stores were already established in California. Big-name skate celebrity partnerships and a nod in the 1982 film Fast Times at Ridgemont High hurled the brand into mainstream consciousness, where it has remained.

Now, Vans has gone beyond just shoes to manufacture t-shirts, hoodies, socks, hats, and backpacks. And, as a sponsor of the Warped tour -- as well as countless skateboard, surf, snow, BMX, and Moto X teams -- the company is committed to supporting youth lifestyle, music, and action sports.
