The Timeless Vans Vault OG Old Skool Returns to One Block Down

First released in 1977, the Vans Vault OG Old Skool was the brand’s first-ever skate shot to incorporate leather panels, with the now-iconic side stripe — reminiscent of the crest of a wave — beginning as a random doodle by founder, Paul Van Doren.

Originally referred to by Van Doren as the “jazz stripe”, it has since grown to become an unmistakable hallmark, signaling to decades of new consumers the brand’s illustrious history in subculture and quality.

As one of contemporary footwear’s most iconic silhouettes, a design that was born from skateboarding quickly turned into a purveyor of casual, laid-back style. Having hosted a number of iterations throughout its decade-long history, the black and white LX combines premium suede and heavy-duty canvas over its upper, and is widely regarded as one of the brand’s most iconic styles.
