Back in 1966, the Van Doren brothers and two business partners opened a small factory in Anaheim, California where they took orders for shoes and made them on site that day. The style on offer was the No. 44 Deck Shoe—extra tough with a wicked grippy sole, it quickly found a home in the burgeoning skate scene. The Style 73 was one of their most popular skate shoes in the ‘90s, coveted for its durable suede uppers that stood up to grip tape longer than textile uppers. This model stays true to the originals from that era, but Vans has updated the fit and materials for modernized comfort. It doesn’t get much more classic than this.
