Mens Vans Shoes

Out of all the skate shoes to ever come and go, classic Mens Vans shoes will always remain a true classic in the world of skateboarding. Growing up as a skater 25 years ago all we really had were Vans and airwalk shoes. The industry was quite small back then and you would be lucky to find a pair of skater shoes at any mall or store. There was no such thing as buying online and stores like West 49th. The only store in town was the Boarding house located right next to the Richmond skate ranch, the birthplace to the RDS skate team and later the Juggernaut RDS clothing. Vans shoes have been there through it all and still remain insanely popular to this day! Check out for yourself some of these killer Men’s Vans shoes.


With super speed, after collaborative works with WTAPS and Luke Meier, Vans Shoes sought out the help of legendary professional skateboarder Christian Hosoi.  Hosoi emerged as one of the top pro skaters of vert ramp skating along with other legends like Steve Caballero and Tony Hawk . He created both  the Christ Air and Rocket Air, at one point in time he even had the worlds highest air record. Christian totally helped push vert skating into the public eye and gave legitimacy to the sport itself. Vans shoes along with Christian Hosoi came up with the Vans Hosoi Bash. Like previous Vans shoes, the Hosoi Bash the main focus is on awesome materials and premium leather. They hold up great for skating and the vulcanized sole means great board grip and traction.


Vans Shoes was formed in the late 1960’s and they massively grew in size during the 70’s skateboarding era.  During some of their early years in the business Vans designed and created special rubber boots with wool lining for the fighting men of the US air force and the United States Department of Defense.

Getting into the mid 80’s, Paul Van Doren started to play a smaller role in the shoe company and it was during this time that Vans shoes created specialty made footwear for athletes in a wide variety of sports including skateboarding, wakeboarding, motor cross, and surfing. Vans has been the main sponsor the the insanely annual Warped Tour since mid 1990’s

Mens Osiris Shoes

We got some pretty nice Mens Osiris shoes too check out the Osiris Duffel kicks! These are some pretty sweet shoes for either kickin it in or skating. They feature a really nice suede material and also have a unique zipper which looks dope, whether you’re on or off your board. Like most Osiris shoes these guys have really decent tongue padding and great ankle support which is something everyone who skates really needs. The rubber sole and SuperGrip outsole also give you awesome board grip and feel so they don’t just look great they also perform excellent. I do find that any suede gets shredded up faster by grip tape then other types of leather but that being said these are still a great pair to grab. Check out some of them below!
