Welcome to the Vans Vault. The cream of the crop. Where the archives of Vans’ 40 odd years of designs are kept, referenced and reissued. Pure classics; the models that started a movement. This is where Vans showcase the shoes that made the brand and the styles of decades gone.

Way back in 1966 when Vans was founded, the essence was pure and simple. Create easy-going, authentic footwear, made to order and made to wear. The rugged make-up and sticky waffle soles attracted the Californian skate community like a moth to a flame. The wheels were in place and rolling quickly; in less than 15 years, Vans had introduced its five most iconic styles. These icons would go on to influence numerous other models over the decades leading up to today.

Taking us back to the early years, the Vault dives head first into the history and the memories of the brand. Here you will find the original and the best, dressed in premium materials and crafted with care.

To look through the lens of Vans Vault, Hype DC teamed up with Sydney-based photographer, Chris Loutfy. An artist with a knack for capturing raw beauty in muted settings, both Chris and Vans Vault share a common flavour. They bestow an element of authenticity, both fearless to be themselves. They just do.

Explore the Vans Vault collection in-store only at Hype DC Pitt Street Mall and QV Melbourne (QVM).
