Back when Vans was operating out of a single storefront, one of the things that set their deck shoes apart was that customers could bring in their own fabric, and have a custom pair of Vans made. This individualistic bent continued with Vans producing their own distinctive and wild colors and patterns, and even holding contests where the public would submit their own designs to the company.

These classic Vans silhouettes feature some touchstones of offbeat pattern design. The Hawaiian motifs of tropical flowers and Hula dancers and the casual dining theme of hamburgers and tacos are firmly established as visual signifiers of carefree, possibly not always within all the rules, definitely not always good for you, good times.
