Vans by Vault celebrated its 10th anniversary last night with a party and collection retrospective in New York City. First introduced in July of 2003, Vans by Vault has launched many of the brand's most sought after releases, including collaborations with Marc Jacobs, Pendleton, Kenzo, The Simpsons, Major League Baseball, Disney and Taka Hayashi, among others.

"Ten years later it's nice to see that we have been successful with what we set out to do with Vault," said Steve Mills, Director of Lifestyle Footwear at Vans. "We have forged unique partnerships within the industry to create product that maintains our storied heritage all while staying true to our strategy of distribution that elevates the collection. The best part is, we have never steered away from the five original footwear models that have made Vans the iconic brand it is today; the Authentic, Classic Slip-On, Era, Sk8-Hi, and Old Skool."
