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 vibrant contrasting color, the Kids Easy Logo Old Skool pays homage to our heritage while ensuring that this low top, lace-up shoe remains as iconic as ever. It also includes 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.
