Few shoe brands are synonymous with a print like Vans and its checkerboard designs.
With that in mind, Vans executed the pattern in shoe styles designed by skaters for skateboarding — the Era Pro. Skateboarder Jason Dill models the red and white canvas style in the Checkerboard Pro Classics lookbook.
The Era Pro Checkerboard debuted on Tuesday and is available for $60 on vans.com/skate and at your nearest Vans location.
The low-top sneaker features blue single-wrap foxing tape, complementing the red and white checkerboard motif, as well as the brand’s signature waffle outsole and UltraCush HD sockliners.
The Era Pro joins a growing list of popular Pro Classics available in a range of Checkerboard styles, including the Sk8-Hi Pro, Old Skool Pro, and Slip-On Pro.
Last month, FN reported a recent study by Piper Jaffray found that Vans is among the list of brands that teens are spending the most money on right now.
