Happy 50th, Vans: How the iconic shoe brand born in Anaheim has kept on surviving (OC Register Article)

Steve Van Doren, himself

As we come up on Vans’ 50th Anniversary this Wednesday, Vans has been featured in a few articles around town, and Orange County’s own OC Register sat down with our friends over at Vans, to discuss the past, present, and future, and were also kind enough to get Laylan Connelly, the one who wrote the article, to reach out to me for our perspective on the brand, and how people like us represent Vans in the current sneaker collecting community.  We had a nice phone conversation, and I’m sure I rambled on a little too much, as I normally do, but it was just nice to see that she even included my part, lol!  Anyways, read the great article over on the OC Register.

Everybody’s favorite vintage Vans fanatic, @pillowheat
