|This is awesome and I suppose it could have gone in the youtube thread but quite honestly I think it deserves it's own post.|
This is just a few of the reasons I still wear Vans.......

|Killer vid, I've been wearing Vans for as long as I can remember, too bad there no longer made in the U.S.A. and the quality went down, but they still rock!|

True, Vans were a little more solid when made in the USA and their soles are pretty fast wearing, but I wouldn't want to wear anything else...

|I remember sending off my order form from Skateboarder and waiting for them to show up in the mailbox. Sadly, I have clown feet now and Vans are too narrow for me. Does anyone know if any of their models is wider than the normal Vans?|

|Been wearing them my whole life. TNT 5's are my favorite right now. I've got a pretty wide foot and they fit me well.|
