The Checkerboard Slip-On has become synonymous with Vans’ “Off The Wall” state of mind since its introduction in 1977. The beloved pattern has been worn by surfers, skaters, BMX riders, artists, musicians and the fashion set as a defining canvas of creative expression. For the forthcoming spring season Vans introduces a new interpretation of the iconic black and white checks remixed with a blurred effect.
Kicking off the new year, Vans introduces the Blur Check Pack featuring trippy, dazed and confused uppers across the Authentic, Old Skool, Classic Slip-On and Sk8-Hi models. Using a digitally printed graphic, the checkerboard pattern captures the essence of motion that is sure to cause a double take. The Blur Check Pack is available in classic black and white checks now at Vans retail locations.
