When it comes to the original skateboard canvas shoe, we have to say that we are on board. The brand launched by brothers Paul Van Doren and Jim Van Doren in 1966 in California has produced footwear that has literally stood the test of time. Originally the idea was to create a casual sneaker with thick soles, that were as strong as a ‘Sherman Tank’. Adopted originally by the LA skateboard community, we find they look just as good when going for lunch or simply sitting down. Peruse our edit for your style, whether it be the Old Skool or Sk8 Hi.
