Vans' iconic checkerboard print, first introduced in the late '70s on the Style #48 (known today as the Slip-On), has undergone a design revision for the new season and is featured on a new sneaker pack showcasing a quartet of classic silhouettes. First up is the Authentic, which highlights the checkerboard pattern in three different sizes across its canvas upper, including a micro-check print on the collar. The Sk8-Hi and Old Skool both feature black suede paneling on the vamp and heel, and quarter panels with a white leather side stripe that splits the quarter panel into two checkerboard variations. Finally, the Classic Slip-On highlights a mix of micro- and macro-sized checks. The kicks are available now at vans.com and Vans retail stores.
