RIP James Van Doren

One of the Originators of the Vans Shoe Company, Jim Van Doren Has passed away at Age 72. Vans are the shoe of choice in my closet and I'm sure many of you reading this share the same taste in footwear. We can thank Jim for creating the company that has helped form a culture we all love and cherish. Skateboarding, music, art, surf, the Vans shoe company holds strong even after 45 years in the business. RIP
