On March 16th, 1966, at street 704E Broadway, in Anaheim, California, Paul Van Doren and three partners opened up their first ever store and the Vans dream was born. The Van Doren Rubber Company was unique in that it manufactures shoes and sells them directly to the public. On that first morning, 12 customers purchase shoes which are made that day and ready for pick-up in the afternoon.The Vans #44 deck shoes, which is now known as the Authentic were born. The sneakers’ original and now iconic style, is a simple low top, lace-up with durable canvas upper, metal eyelets, Vans flag label and Vans original Waffle Outsole.Now Vans goes back to its roots with its »Anaheim Factory« Pack. The pack features a number of iconic silhouettes.The new Authentic 44 DX from the »Anaheim Factory« Pack pays tribute to the first Vans factory in Anaheim, California, by borrowing details from the original Vans Authentic and offering modernized comfort and design!
