Vault By Vans – “Checkered Past” OG Classic Slip-On LX & OG Sk8-Hi LX (3.16.16)


Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, honors its 50th anniversary by reinterpreting the coveted checkerboard motif in the limited edition “Checkered Past” collection. Launching through Vans’ premium label, Vault by Vans, this deluxe 10-piece assortment expresses the iconic pattern as handwoven leather craftsmanship across footwear and accessories.

The checkerboard is a sacred emblem in Vans’ 50-year history, appearing on cherished footwear forms since the brand’s family-owned years as the 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 colorways that tie back to the footwear capsule.

To truly commemorate the brand’s anniversary, Vault by Vans releases the “Checkered Past” collection on March 16, Vans’ 50th birthday, at select boutique accounts around the globe. Stay up to date on Vans’ 50th anniversary at and see more from Vault by Vans at

Vans x Belkin – iPhone5 Waffle Case (coming soon!)


Sorry to be so late to the party, but it appears that Vans has been cooking up their famous Waffle iPhone case, this time for the iPhone5.  I’ve always wondered why they didn’t make them when the first iPhone5 cases came out, but that was because they wanted to do it right the second time around, enlisting Belkin, one of the few high quality electronics accessory brands in the industry.  Notice that the material looks more firm, so your phone won’t fall face-first out of the case anymore!  This case will be available in 5 colorways, which should be available soon.  There’s also a few other Vans cases that Belkin has out already, which feature some classic Vans prints on them.  Pics are available after the jump.  Stay tuned, as we will keep you posted for sure!
