Vans Rowley Classic shoes. The Rowley is making its first appearance as a kids silhouette to celebrate 20 years since its initial debut. On the heel of each shoe youll find 66/99, which marks the founding year of Vans and the very first Rowley shoe release, and the 19 in the colorway name stands for the latest reissue. Featuring two heritage colorways that Geoff Rowley helped design in the early 2000s, the Rowley Classic features synthetic leather and shiny spandex uppers, the iconic Vans sidestripe, and signature rubber waffle outsoles. Imported.
