The origin of the Vans ComfyCush Slip-On

Vans is a globally known company that manufactures high-quality shoes and apparel for skaters, punks, artists, and businessmen. Originally called The Van Doren Rubber Company, the brand was born with the premise of manufacturing and selling custom shoes right in the store. 

The company was founded in 1966 in California by Paul and Jim Van Doren together with Gordon Lee and Serge Delia. They moved their families to Anaheim to start their own shoe brand. It took them almost a year to set up a self-reliant factory, but once it was put in place, the company became unstoppable.

Several shoe models were released by Vans, including the Classic Slip-On, Old Skool, and Era. Initially named Style #98,  the Vans Classic Slip-On continues to reign as the brand’s most iconic silhouette. It was introduced in the late 1970s when skateboarding became a thing. 

Through the years, the Classic Slip-Ons have been featured in several co-lab collections. They were also redesigned one too many times. One such iteration is the Vans ComfyCush Slip-On.
