This black backpack offers a durable canvas construction and displays a bold white Vans logo applique sewn to the front panel.

The original Vans skateboard logo was designed in Costa Mesa, California, in the 1970s by Mark Van Doren, son of then-President and co-owner James Van Doren, at age 13; Mark’s design was a stencil, allowing the logo to be spray-painted onto his skateboards. The design was incorporated into the heel tab on Style 95, an early Vans skateboard shoe. Mark’s interest in skateboarding is what led Vans to manufacture skateboarding shoes.
In 1976, Vans began using its “Off The Wall” motto, a slang phrase used by skateboarders while doing tricks in empty pools. Around this time, Vans released its Vans Side-stripe and Vans #36, also known as the “Old Skool” design.
