Vans’ ‘Checkerboard’ has an illustrious history. From humble beginnings on the Style 48 in the 70s, it garnered worldwide fame on the feet of Jeff Spicoli in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and has become a requisite part of today's cool-kid uniform.
In homage to the historic print, Vans are serving up four silhouettes with checkerboard galore. The motif has been plied on the Sk8 Hi, Old Skool, Authentic and, of course, the Slip-On. Staring at your pair too long may cause headaches.
These are available from Vans now.
