Yep, according to the official Vans Timeline, the company launched its extensive apparel collection for both men and women in 2006, just 11 years ago. Pro skater Anthony Van Engelen was the first team rider for Vans Apparel.

These days, much of that apparel can be found at Baggins at any given time, both in-store and online. In fact, Baggins, which has the largest selection of Vans footwear and accessories in the world, stocks more than 600 varieties of Vans items and apparel, including Vans backpacks, Vans socks  ,Vans hats , and Vans sunglasses.

Vans Backpacks

At Baggins, we stand behind our wide selection of Herschel Backpacks  but we also know what it’s like to want to match your bag to your shoes, which is why we also carry Vans Backpacks , ranging from the patterned Vans New Patch Backpack Realm  and Vans Realm Backpack Floral Black  to the classics like the Vans Old Skool II Backpack Black/White and the Vans Old Skool II Backpack Black/Charcoal.







These 22-liter backpacks have front pockets to keep all your cords and pens organized. They also offer up lots of style and are super practical everyday accessories.

We also love the bolder options, such as the Vans Nintendo Backpack Game Over, a 100% polyester backpack that features a zippered main compartment, debossed lining at the interior back panel, and a front organizational pocket. The custom print includes a pixelated GAME OVER image and a cute little 8-bit Mario on the checkerboard front pocket.

And the Vans X Toy Story Backpack Woody features all that and adjustable padded straps all wrapped up in an all-over Sheriff Woody print.

Vans Socks

In addition to our dozens of Stance Socks designs we also carry a variety of Vans Socks.

The Vans Socks Classic Crew 3 Pack Black  feature a ribbed cushioned design with a Vans logo at the top, perfect for every occasion.

They are also available in white with the Vans Socks Classic Crew 3 Pack White.

If no-shows are more your style these days, you’ll love the Vans Classic Super No Shows in Black.

Vans Hats

Moving on to hats, our favourite Vans beanie at the moment is the Vans Nakoma Beanie . This 100% acrylic, heathered, navy beanie features an embroidered logo patch, wide brim, and stretchy ribbed knit. It is the perfect navy hat for all weather.

Vans hats are also available in trucker styles, like this one from the Toy Story line. The Vans X Toy Story Classic Patch Plus Trucker Hat Buzz Lightyear  is an adjustable mesh back trucker style hat that features an all-over print of Buzz Lightyear on the front panel.

Vans Sunglasses

Last but not least, Vans has a lot to offer in the sunglasses category. Best of all, they’re affordable at less than $25 a pair. And, although it’s only February, it’s never too early to stock up on sunglasses. Sometimes the sun has been known to shine in February, especially in places beyond Vancouver Island.

Have you checked out foldable sunglasses yet? The future of sunglasses, the Vans Sunglasses Foldable Spicoli Shades Black  compact into a small, fist-sized package for easy carrying and protection.

You can also pick up some simple shades that don’t do the fold, like these Vans Spicoli Shades Black 

Or these Vans Janelle Sunglasses Capri Breeze

Or these Vans Janelle Sunglasses Clear/ Azalea Pink


(For the record, Vans Janelle Sunglasses are 100% polycarbonate retro-inspired frames with gradient lenses and Vans printed logo on the arms. The Vans Spicoli Sunglasses are 100% polycarbonate sunglasses with UV-protected lenses and an embossed Vans logo at the temple.)
