Are Vans unisex?
From the launch of our first pair of Authentic deck shoes, right up to our most recent collections, Vans have been created to be inclusive of all genders. The designs, fits and sizes can be enjoyed and worn by anyone.
When we sit down to design a shoe, our main mission is to give the greatest choice and the perfect fit. Although you can find designs which are more feminine or more masculine, you’re free to shop whatever you like—every shoe is designed to be comfortable and stylish, no matter who you are.
Here’s an insider look at how we develop our classic unisex skate shoes to appeal to people from all walks of life. Explore campaigns from around the world and discover how we work to inspire all genders to express themselves.
Our 50-year heritage is built on equality, diversity and stylish unisex shoes. We’ve spent years perfecting a comfy, hard-wearing, sticky-soled skate shoe that anyone of any gender can use to take on the skatepark or the street. Our customers are diverse, so we’ve always made sure our designs are equally as diverse.
Equality and equal representation are so important to us that in 2017, we launched our ‘This is Off The Wall’ campaign to show the world how diverse our customers are and how we’ve been celebrating them through charity work.
Because skate culture can often be seen as male-dominated, it was important to us to include the Vanguards: a group of inspirational women from Brazil, Japan and the US, who shared what skating – and skate style – means to them. We also hosted a series of women's skate workshops on International Women’s Day, along with skate clinics run by the women featured in the campaign.
