Vans and DQM proudly opened the doors to the Vans DQM General retail store in SOHO on Thursday, September 15 and capped off the first day of business with a party for several hundred friends and family that evening.
Located at 93 Grand, the Vans DQM General is Vans’ first store in Manhattan and the co-branded project with local skate and streetwear purveyor DQM is the first of a kind in the United States for Vans.
Expect to find the newest cut & sew and accessories from DQM, the latest from Vans across several lines including our Classics, California, Surf, OTW, Skate and Vault collections and a nice selection of boards, wheels and trucks – all in a setting that beautifully nods to SOHO’s unique heritage and personality.
Thanks to Ray Barbee and the Mattson 2 helping to make the night complete. They JAMMED.

Since opening for business in 2003, DQM has grown to become not only New York’s premiere location for sneakers, menswear and skate goods, but also a fully-fledged brand in its own right, with a complete seasonal collection of clothing and accessories sold in select locations around the world. www.dqmnewyork.com
