Whether you’re a punk or a prep, a skater or a jock, from the easy-going Slip-On or the skate-savvy Era, chances are you’ve owned a pair.

Now as Vans celebrates its 50th anniversary, the California skate label has unveiled a short animated video reminding us of how it all started.

The 50th anniversary campaign and Vans’ 50-year legacy will come to life at ten House of Vans locations across the globe starting tonight, from New York to London to Hong Kong.
