    marketing project

    whats going on everybody. im doing this marketing project and basically tweeking vans shoes marketing plans ect. I chose to play around with their products and places they sell, advertise, ect. My two product ideas are vans golf shoes and vans booties. For the golf shoes i thought they coud make a golf shoe with their classic styling and cheap prices. I feel as though many of us surfers also love to golf and i would def buy a pair of cheap vans golf shoes. What do you guys think? Also i though they could make dope booties since they have a great sense of style and the vans company was originally a rubber company so they have some knowledge on how to work with rubber already. I was thinking doing something wild with the design, crazy prints such as army or digital print, some crazy colors or something. My thought behind that is everybody wants a little style but they dont want too much going on ya know, like do less at the same time. WIth eccentric booty styling you still are sporting the classic black wetsuit design but add a small amount of flare with booty colors and patterns. Any feedback would be great.<br /><br />sorry about the long post by the way, hope everybodys scoring some waves

    I have always had at least one pair of Vans in my shoe rotation. However, you will never, ever, ever ever ever catch me on a golf course... Vans or no vans. Still think it's a pretty cool concept.

    As for other countries... why don't you propose Vans pull a Henry Ford and pay their sweatshop child labor enough money to afford the shoes they are making. They would have instant customer base in those countries!

    Bad timing dude, 70% of the people on this site are in the northeast where alot of people are still recovering from the storm. Take your golf shoes and stick them up your assz...

    dear sniffer, thanks for your help. You dont have to tell me the northeast is f-ed, i already know that due to the fact i live there. Honestly if you dont have comments to help me out dont waste either of our time by posting **** like this. keep spreading the love man

    All I know is, my booties tend to wear out pretty quick and so do my hoods. I'm always looking for good-quality booties, not duds, but ones that are comfortable and wear well and are warm for the winter. Likewise, hoods. I wouldn't mind having a back-up pair of booties - will they come in different mm thicknesses? And will their be an online site for the Van's stuff? Or a bunch of sites through retail. I like it if it's easy to order.

    I think there is a market for Vans Golf Shoes, but it may be pretty limited. I'm not a believer in fashion over function, so you better make sure that your shoes can compete with other brands on the market. Personally, I think the golfing market may not have enough room for a fashion statement. Off the bat, your target audience will primarily be those living the Ridgemont High glory days & the occasional youthful golfer. I truly think you have a better chance with the booties. If some wetsuits have colors/themes, then the bootie market can surely support some sort of "flair." I would never wear a flashy suit, but I would wear Misfit skeleton suit gloves.

    Keep flexing your digital guns.

    Yo sniffer ya newb, you really know how to **** up a rock fight. This is a forum and anybody can say what they want in a respectable mannor. Just because you are still recovering in your **** house in **** bottom, nj, doesnt mean you gotta ruin a forum with your awful two sense that no one give a **** about. So how about you go back to fixing your crappy life and shove that up your ass.

    On the other hand, I think Vans golf shoes are the greatest idea for the company. I would definately be interested in bring that style onto the course while smoking Ls. The booties idea would also be really clutch as long as they are not too flashy. Great forum and also very unteresing
