ABOUT V&A

West Michigan’s Footwear Leader since 1923

V&A Shoes, a family owned business, has been West Michigan’s footwear leader since 1923. When William Van Dis opened V&A Bootery in downtown Kalamazoo, Time Magazine had just published its first issue, Yankee Stadium opened its doors in the Bronx, NY., and Warren G. Harding was president.
