First known as the Vans #36, the Old Skool debuted in 1977 with a unique new addition: a random doodle drawn by founder Paul Van Doren, and originally referred to as the “jazz stripe.” Today, the famous Vans Sidestripe has become the unmistakable-and instantly recognizable-hallmark of the Vans brand.
Constructed with durable suede and canvas uppers in a range of fresh colorways, the Kids Old Skool pays homage to our heritage while ensuring that this low top, lace-up shoe remains as iconic as ever. It also features re-enforced toe caps, supportive padded collars, and signature rubber waffle outsoles.
The Sk8-Hi was introduced in 1978 as Style 38, and showcased the now-iconic Vans Sidestripe on a new, innovative high top silhouette. As only the second model featuring the recognizable marker formerly known as the “jazz stripe,” the Sk8-Hi brought a whole new look to the Vans family.
Building on that first legendary high top, the Kids Pop Classic Tumble Sk8-Hi features sturdy synthetic uppers in stark white with a pop of contrasting color at the sidestripes. This lace-up shoe also includes re-enforced toe caps, supportive padded collars, and signature rubber waffle outsoles.
