Vans - the ultimate blank canvas?

Arguably the most versatile footwear on the planet, Vans, are celebrating their five classic icons and more than 50 years of waffle-soled success with an fresh new campaign.

"Not Just One Thing"  honours the legacy and slick simplicity of five timeless silhouettes: the clean-cut Classic Slip-On, the super comfy Era, the side-striped Old Skool, the high top Sk8-Hi and the shoe that started it all in 1966 - the Authentic.


The story of the Vans legacy begins with two Californian skater brothers and their quest to create a super sticky deck shoe. Their customisable canvas kicks certainly became the footwear of choice for skaters but quickly gained traction among other communities - from surfers to bikers, Hollywood stars and even skydivers.


Now, beloved by creators and free thinkers across the globe, Vans are more than just an iconic skate shoe - they are a platform for free thinking and creativity. These sneakers can mean anything to anyone, and can be styled at your freedom. Dress up by tucking some Slip-Ons under tailored pants, get sporty with shorts and some Old Skools, or make a statement with colour contrasting outfit and a pair of Authentics. These canvas goods are certainly are more than just one thing - they are the literal blank canvas for your imagination to run wild with.
