Dear Vlado Footwear Family,

It's been 18 years since we first launched the brand on April 3, 2003 in Paramount, CA. Our dream and mission was to connect with creatives, celebrate community through music, fashion and dance, and we're pretty proud to say that we did it.

Vlado Footwear has evolved and changed in countless ways since we first started. We look back at our beginning years and sincerely pay homage to our community, our people, our factories, staff and of course, you--our customers.

As we look back and celebrate the good times, the rough times, and everything in between, we are so proud of everything we were able to accomplish together. A special shout out to the folks that have been with us since 6th and Maple and of course we'll never forget all the good times celebrated at 22nd and Main.

Thanks for the memories (KOD, Showdown LA, HHI, USJ--all of it.)

We close this chapter of the brand with our hearts full, heads held high, and proud of everything we were able to do together.

We appreciate your long-standing support and we hope to see you again.

Sending you all our very best,
The Vlado Footwear Team
