In continuation of the brand’s 50th anniversary Vans capsule, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand launches the Van Doren Approved Collection, an assortment of footwear and apparel featuring heritage prints hand-picked by Steve Van Doren, son of Vans founder Paul Van Doren. “I had the pleasure of creating this collection and recreating a vintage shot of me buried under the Van Doren Approved collection. Speaking to our heritage, this timeless image is inspired by a photo taken 20 years ago, which similarly brings back lots of great memories of the last 50 years of Vans. This collection honors some unique heritage prints, which date back to the ‘70s and ‘80s when this original photo was shot” recalls Van Doren. The Van Doren Approved assortment includes reissued styles with vintage graphics from the Vans archives.
