R.I.P. Vans man

I heard today that Jim Van Doren has died age 72.
Mr Van Doren invented the famous  Vans Waffle sole,
the choice of skateboarders everywhere.
I have worn them since 1978.
His nephew Steve Van Doren made me a burger one time at a big skateboard bowl event we did at Donnington.
Top people - the Van Doren's
