Vans Europe showcased a collection of vintage footwear and apparel representing the brand’s 47 year history this week as part of the House of Vans Berlin takeover during fashion week. The exhibition was a compilation of the personal collections of the Skateboard Museum’s Jürgen Blümlein, The Other Side of the Pillow’s Henry Davies and longtime Vans collaborator/artist Dimitri Coste.

Over 200 pairs of original shoes dating back to 1966 were on display with an illustrated timeline of the company. Highlights included a pair of recently discovered shoes thought to date back to the first few months of production at the original Vans factory in Orange County, classic ‘80s canvas prints and a few oddities including clown shoes in Vans iconic checkerboard.
