One of the most iconic designs in a shop full of them. What started in 1977 as the Vans #36, introducing the now iconic Vans Sidestripe, became the Old Skool. They say the Classics never go out of style, and Vans Old Skool Black & White is further proof. The marriage of durable suede and canvas has stood the test of time, and the work of founder Paul Van Doren ensures that the Vans Old Skool Black & White shoe remains as popular as ever. Vans Old Skool Black & White is Vans at their best, with reinforced toe caps, supportive padded colors, and signature rubber waffle outsoles for maximum comfort and convenience.
