Vans purpose is to enable creative expression—and inspire youth culture —by celebrating and encouraging the Off the Wall attitude that comes from expressing your true self. Our sustainability program furthers our mission by supporting art, music and action sports programs through monetary and in-kind donations and volunteering. As part of our commitment to inspire youth culture, we recognize that we must protect the planet and its resources for future generations. Our sustainability program does this by reducing the environmental footprint of our operations and products.
Best known for their sandals that are designed for being outdoors, Chaco is a leader in the industry. Made for water, hiking and adventure, Chacos adjustable, webbing straps create a comfortable and secure shoe. Highly durable and a Colorado classic, these are not to be looked over when looking for the ultimate adventure sandal.
They are rugged, with their own natural beauty and distinctive look and feel. Built tougher than they need to be, they reflect the place they’re from. There is no place on Earth like Tasmania and no boots on Earth like the ones that were born there.
And while they have evolved in style, design, and technology over the years, the quality has never changed. They are still built as they always have been: to go anywhere, do anything, and look great every step of the way.
