RIP James Van Doren

James Van Doren, co-founder of Vans shoe company passed away today at age 72. I’ve been running Vans since I was a little kid and I would like to thank James for his contribution to both skateboarding and quality footwear design. Vans are my go-to shoes and truly are the “World’s #1 Skate board shoe.” Here are a few photos of a pair of Skate Hi’s I have that just passed the point of skateable.
