NOS 1980's Pirate Print Vans Sneakers

I remember the old yellow and black hi-top version of this design was my favorite. The old vans were actually made in the USA and not China like the ones nowadays. (All photos from Ebay)

When I lived in the mid-hudson valley of New York, there was a complex of outlet stores and Vans had an outlet there. They had a large inventory of nos shoes from back when they were made in the states. I bought quite a few and wore them until they were little more than dust and laces. The soles of the those US shoes were like clouds.

i remember custom ordering vans in the early 90's from a surf shop in town. it took 90 days but thats when they were hand made. the old vans were so much better than now. i still have that pair that i custom ordered.
