From vulcanized soles to jazz stripes, Vans has several recognizable brand motifs, but their most iconic just might be their classic checkerboard print. A timeless indicator of Cali cool, the geometric pattern has been called upon in a plethora of colors and a cornucopia of styles, and now it’s back again, being used as an overlay for desert camouflage on three classic silhouettes: the Vans Old Skool, Vans Authentic, and Vans Slip-On. Each shoe offers a earthy chip camo base, combining browns and tans with just a touch of white, and then overlays it with a simple yet extremely effective black checkerboard print. Both the Old Skool and the Slip-on opt to use black for a primary accent color while the Authentic calls upon white, but all three present a mostly uniform look that’s finalized by a white midsole and — of course — the aforementioned gum outsole. This fresh three-pack is available now with price points ranging from $55 for the Authentic and Slip-On to $60 for the Old Skool, so check a buyer’s guide below to secure your favorite pair(s).
