About Gravis and Vans
By blending the best athletes, zestiest musicians and most creative artists, Gravis is bent on bringing together talent from every walk of life to not only produce top quality shoes and accessories, but to also create a unified way of life that celebrates diversity. Conceived in 1998 by the Burton Snowboard team, the guys became obsessed with building a brand that focused on research and development to make long lasting products that flexed unique fashion, advanced performance and promoted expression of individual creativity.
So, the team of pros put their noggins together and shared experiences and knowledge that soon gave way to merchandise that many could only dream of.
Gravis is fully stocked with the newest and sleekest skate and lifestyle shoes. Take the Quarters
for a ride and get impressed by the high traction outsole that is made that much sweeter by the ultra comfortable footbed. Constructed with a canvas lining, textile uppers and dialed in with aloha artwork, the Quarters are the epitome of style and performance. The Slymz Suede shoes
are built to keep things looking fresh while you are on the go. With a breathable perforated vamp and crafted with premium suede, style and quality are yours to embrace.
Vans is about more than building the best footwear that fuels your extreme sports addiction. They are a brand that works tirelessly to promote music and art while tying them together with action sports. By interweaving all three, Vans believes that the unification will only make them stronger. Way back in 1966, the Van Doren brothers first opened a shoe store. The shoe known as the Authentic was an instant hit and the brand continued to pick up speed through the ‘70s and beyond. Now, Vans has a hand in more than just a few events here and there. Perhaps you have heard of the Vans Warped Tour? This massive festival rumbles across the country each year showcasing the hottest musicians and bands in the world. They are also the masterminds behind some of the most progressive shred videos.
Vans gets their skate team in on the action when designing shoes like the all-new Chukka Low Skate Shoe.
Featuring a modern slim shape, a PU midsole, original waffle soles and designed with a less-is-more attitude, the Chukka screams with performance. Inspired by the riders themselves, this shoe has been infused with Syndicate technology to make it an instant classic. Setting the standard in good-looking functionality, the Era Pro Skate Shoe
takes long lasting excellence to a whole new level. Backed with ollie area reinforcement and a co-molded PU1 footbed for improved comfort and fit, your feet will thank you for sinking their toes into the Era Pro.
Both Gravis and Vans are dedicated to advancing their industry with a multifaceted approach. By infusing music and art into their athlete driven products, they have established themselves as leaders with vision. An unrelenting pursuit for something beyond perfection is what sets Gravis and Vans apart.
