Vans: Off the Wall (50th Anniversary Edition)
by Doug Palladini
A celebration, chronicle, and must-have for Vans sneakers fans, Vans: Off the Wall offers vivid photography and the compelling story of a casual canvas shoe and a DIY spirit that helped turn pop culture inside out. This updated edition, published to coincide with the brand’s 50th anniversary, brings to life the Vans community of boarders, bikers, artists, musicians, and street culture, and the iconic shoes its members love to wear. With oral histories from Tony Alva, Joel Tudor, Steve Caballero, Stacy Peralta, Oliver Peck, and others—as well as two new chapters of original material—Vans: Off the Wall provides an intimate, visually stunning account of how the company has changed the face of pop culture since its founding in 1966.
