What is Vans?
Vans is a company that sells shoes, t-shirts, hoodies, socks, hats, and backpacks. Two benefits of Vans is that the store actually goes and on tour and they also have local state parks.
It's based in California. Brothers, Paul Van Doren, James Van Doren, then friends, Gordon Lee, and Serge D'Elia opened the first Vans store under the name The Van Doren Rubber Company. Then they had a Vans skateboarding team and the store had worldwide success.
