This year marks the 50th anniversary of Paul Van Doren founding the Van Doren Rubber Company, the Southern California shop that would grow in to one of the biggest skate and surf brands in the world. Carrying on the celebrations, Vans are releasing a collection of footwear and apparel featuring some of the brand's classic prints chosen by Steve Van Doren, the founder's son.

The inspiration for Steve's choices comes from the ​70s and ​80s, and particularly a vintage shot that has been recreated to mark the anniversary. "Speaking to our heritage, this timeless image is inspired by a photo taken 20 years ago, which similarly brings back lots of great memories of the last 50 years of Vans" said Steve, "this collection honors some unique heritage prints, which date back to the ‘70s and ‘80s when this original photo was shot".
