Jan 18 (Reuters) - VF Corp raised its full-year revenue and profit forecast on Friday after the apparel maker reported an increase in demand for its high margin Vans sneakers during the holiday quarter.
Quarterly revenue from the Vans unit rose 25 percent and the company has seen a demand surge in recent years due to the popularity of its skater culture inspired sneakers and expects the brand to achieve $5 billion in revenue by 2023.

The company also raised its full-year revenue forecast by $100 million to $13.8 billion.
VF reported a net income of $463.5 million, or $1.16 per share, in the third quarter ended Dec. 29, compared to a loss of $90.3 million, or 23 cents per share, a year earlier.
