Vans shoes might have started as skater footwear, but half a century later the iconic brand is a mainstream staple. Classic Vans shoes sit alongside an arsenal of new styles and designs, all instantly recognisable thanks to that distinct Vans look, comfort levels and durability.
If you’re looking to buy a new pair, you’ll know Vans shoes rarely come cheap. Luckily, the Black Friday is one of the few times of the year where you might just find a discount, as retailers try to entice shoppers with Van shoe sales and deals.

Classic Vans shoes: shop the look
Vans Old Skool: Arguably the most iconic Vans shoe you can buy, Vans Old Skool was the first Vans skate shoe to feature leather panelling for better durability – and the iconic side stripe too. A slightly chunkier plimsoll than the classic Vans Slip Ons, you can dress them up or down, making them a wardrobe staple for adults and kids alike. Shop Vans Old Skool in all colours at Vans now (opens in new tab).
Vans Slip-On: The uniform for skater kids around the world, Vans Slip-On shoes put the brand on the map when the style launched in the 70s. The iconic checkerboard pattern wasn’t introduced until a few years later, but today it’s one of the most popular and recognisable Vans shoes you can buy. Shop Vans Slip Ons in all colours at Vans now (opens in new tab).
Vans Authentic: A timeless classic, with their low-ride design and durable canvas, Vans Authentic were the very first Vans shoe to launch in 1966, and remain a must-have for sneakerheads around the world. There are countless collaborations to choose between, and this iconic Vans shoe works with any style – again making it a wardrobe staple.

Vans Sk8-Hi: Vans’ high-tops are a sneaker staple. Developed in the 70s to help skaters protect their ankles - and quickly adopted by punk rock - they were the second Vans shoe to adopt the iconic sidestripe, and have been at the forefront of street fashion ever since. They’re a casual option, perfect for both winter and festival season. Shop Vans Sk8-Hi in all colours at Vans now (opens in new tab).
Vans Era: Designed by pro skaters Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta, Vans Era shoes feature a simple silhouette with waffle soles, lace-up fastening and the recognisable 'Off The Wall' branding on the heel. Shop Vans Era shoes in all colours at Vans (opens in new tab).
