 Facts
 

Vans was birthed from a dream of one of its founders, Paul Van Doren. He had learned how to make sneakers in a factory on the East Coast and had seen all the shoes he was making being sold to retail stores which then resold them to the public. His dream seemed fairly simple, to manufacture shoes and sell them directly to the public.

AH Man! The Rowley classics are the best skate shoe ever created! they're thin so the flick on your flip tricks is lovely. They're comfy, although I usually put and extra inner soul for added cushioning when doing big stuff. And of course they look excellent, mixing the old school vans with a modern twist. I've never found a pair of skate trainers better than Vans rowley's. Tried the TNT's (Tony Trujillo's pro model), they're good but no where near as good as the classic rowlenators. Skating wise, they're the ones to get. I love 'em! In their field they are the best so 5 out of 5. But they could make the souls more padded.

I bought my first pair of vans when i was 14. I think i've only bought 3 pairs since (i'm 21 now). They are that well made they seem to last forever, they don't leak (like some other skate shoes) and they're the comfiest shoes on the planet. and i don't think i'm the only person to think so. Because skate trainers have to be so tough to withstand what a skateboarder will put them through they also make a great buy for someone just wanting comfortable / cool trainers. Most people I know who have a pair of vans never even go near a skateboard.
