When it comes to sneaker brands not afraid to play with patterns, it’s Vans and everyone else. The iconic Vans Checkerboard Slip-On remains one of the best pairs of summer sneakers to this day, while having gone through a number of updates and creative iterations like the Vans Vault UA Og Classic, Fast Times Special Edition and the Blurred Checkerboard Authentic Version. The long list of creative interpretations of the classic now includes these Vans UA Classic Slip-On Twist Checkerboard Sneakers. As the name implies, it’s the classic check-pattern contrast panels with waffle-soles, canvas-construction and a round toe with a twisted checkerboard pattern that’s M.C. Escher meets Dali–if they designed sneakers. The end result is a pair of kicks with contrast panels, elasticated side inserts, chunky rubber soles and all the other aspects you’ve come to expect from everything Vans has been doing for decades.
