Vans were made by hand in the usa until c. 1998 & utilise far superior materials, production methods & silhouettes for greater longevity, comfort & durability. All our shoes are 20+ years old & all visible flaws, imperfections & signs of wear are celebrated as part of their uniqueness.
Visit the original pillowHeat concept store, & brand archive at our Vans store London Carnaby where everything inside our new shop is available for Purchase.
As classically made in USA Vans use a more tapered & narrow last, they can fit up to half a size smaller than modern sizing. But don’t worry we will be on hand to talk you through our collection and ensure you get the products and information you need.
