Vans Celebrate Their 50th Year Anniversary With A Retro Checkerboard Collection
Iconic footwear brand Vans recently celebrated their 50th year anniversary. In honor of that, the company is revisiting one of its’ most recognizable patterns: the checkerboard. For its spring collection, Vans will feature the pattern on an assortment of new footwear and accessories.
The new collection will feature the checkerboard motif on popular items like the Sk8-Hi, Old Skool, and Classic Slip-on sneaker, backpacks, Camper Hat, and much more.
In a press release about the anniversary collection, Vans Vice President of Events, and son of the founder, Steve Van Doren, said, “Vans are a natural canvas and in the late ‘70s we started seeing Vans fans sketch all over their shoes. Before we knew it, checkerboard was everywhere so we wanted to introduce our own version and make sure it was ‘Off The Wall.’”
The Van Checkerboard Collection is now available at select retail stores and online.
