“Henry’s collection focuses on shoes made before 1998”
Pillow Heat aka Henry Davies, one of the world’s leading collectors of vintage Vans shoes and merchandise will make the move from his Clapton based store to take up permanent residency at Vans Carnaby street from Thursday 15th November.
Presenting rare and hard-to-find Vans product dating back to the brands inception, Henry’s collection focuses on shoes made before 1998 when production moved away from the USA. Vans opened it’s first store in 1966, manufacturing shoes on the premises in Anaheim, California and selling them direct to the public. Customers could bring in any fabric and shoes would be made that day, ready to pick-up in the afternoon. Vans became the shoe of choice for a generation of skateboarders and as the brands popularity grew so too did the style options available.
Those who are in London, head down to the Vans store to check it out, its fantastic.
