Vans Ups The Checkerboard On These Sneakers.

Fashion, Footwear

Vans’ iconic Old Skool silhouette has had many revamped iterations over the years. This time around Vans is taking the model back to its roots with the iconic checkerboard pattern, with a twist. The black and white canvas and suede upper uses color-blocked accents in black on the heel, toe and tongue, while contrasted by the bold checkered panel on the lateral sides. A smaller checkerboard pattern sits above the Sidestripe, mixing things up. Rounding out the look of the sneakers are the signature vulcanized midsole and trademark gum waffle outsole. These are currently available at rime’s Upper East Side location. Screen Shot 2018-02-08 at 2.43.27 PM Screen Shot 2018-02-08 at 2.48.39 PM
