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.
