Sizing: The Style 36 fits true to size.
Tapping into our history, Style 36 was Vans’ first sidestripe shoe brought to life in 1977. Though the Vans Sidestripe has since become the unmistakable-and instantly recognizable-hallmark of the Vans brand, back then it was just a random doodle drawn by founder Paul Van Doren. It even had a different name: the “jazz stripe.”
Honoring the style that launched an icon, the Gum Style 36 is made with sturdy canvas and suede uppers with retro gum-colored sidewalls. This low top, lace-up shoe also includes vintage styling, re-enforced toe caps, supportive padded collars, and signature rubber waffle outsoles.
