Back in the '70s, few years after the Vans Authentic shoe dropped, the Z-Boys Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta felt that it needed some tweaks. With their help, the dank Era was born. It came about as a direct result of skaters wanting more padding around the heel and ankle; it came from kids saying 'this is what we need'! The famous Vans slogan 'Off The Wall' also came to life after Era's debut. The unmistakable red-and-white logo was added to the heel of the Era, and rest is history. Initially available only in red and blue colourway, today the signature skate shoe is seen in more designs and colourways than ever before.
Gaining popularity as many of the skateboarding greats began wearing them, the rugged lace-up soon came to make up the vivid pop of colours seen on skate parks. Now available in every possible colour and combination, Vans adds personality to any ensemble.
