Vans Checkerboard - checkerboard in the main role! Slip-Ons, Old Skools, Sk8-Hi and other well known and proven silhouettes in a checkerboard design. The roots of using this design on Vans shoes is dated back to the end of 70s, when Steve Van Doren, son of the founder Paul, noticed that skaters drew the above-mentioned checkerboard design with black permanent pens on the white soles of Slip-Ons. As with many other models by Vans, the Checkerboard collection comes from the skate pop-culture of the last century. Checkerboards have definitely become legendary after 1982, hand in hand with the premiere of the movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High, where they were worn by the main character portrayed by Sean Penn. Thanks to their smart dual coloring, they match any outfit more easily, so pick yours at Footshop!
