Vans celebrates its 50th anniversary by reinterpreting the signature checkerboard motif through the limited-edition "Checkered Past" collection. Releasing under the brand's premium Vault by Vans imprint, the deluxe 10-piece assortment expresses the iconic pattern with handwoven leather, featured on Original Classic styles and Leather Checker Bags. The footwear silhouettes take the form of the OG Classic Slip-On LX and OG Sk8-Hi LX, rendered in black, white, blue and multicolored checkered executions. They're joined by a leather backpack in dual colorways that tie back to the footwear capsule. Look for the "Checkered Past" collection to hit Vault by Vans stockists on March 16.
