In 1966, Paul and James Van Doren, together with Gordon Lee and Serge D' Elia, started and opened the Van Doren Rubber Company.  Initially, they manufactured shoes by themselves and sold them directly to the public. They only had shoes displayed on the shelves, so whenever the customer wanted to buy the display model, they would ask the customer to go back in the afternoon to get it.

It was in the 1970s that they released the original version of the Vans skateboard which a 13-year old boy Mark Van Doren designed. Mark used his skateboard when he created the logo. After the skateboard logo, the Vans' "Off The Wall" logo debuted in 1976.

In the ‘70s, Vans introduced the #98 and used the signature waffle outsoles for a reliable grip to help skateboarders and BMX riders. The silhouette of #98, later renamed as the Classic Slip-On, became the rage in Southern California.

Vans’ name became known globally. Later on, the revamped Classic Slip-On came to birth which is the Vans Scotchgard Slip-On Mid DX. This stylish shoe also has the signature waffle outsoles for reliable traction and flexibility. For long-lasting comfort, it utilizes the UltraCush sockliners
