Vans Celebrates 50 Years With The Vault By Vans Checkered Past Collection
The checkerboard is a sacred emblem in Vans’ 50-year history, appearing on cherished footwear forms from their early beginning under the family-owned Van Doren Rubber Company to its modern-day status as a global icon in action sports, music, fashion and art. The “Checkered Past” collection pays tribute to this design heritage with a series of Original Classic styles and Leather Checker Bags.
Traditionally seen as a print, luxurious leather materials refine the checkerboard pattern as an intricate woven arrangement across Vans’ storied silhouettes. In the line-up of Original Classics, the OG Classic Slip-On LX and OG Sk8-Hi LX can be seen in black, white, blue and multicolored checkered executions.
The Leather Checker Bag completes the collection with two color options that tie back to the footwear capsule.
