7 Iconic Movie Shoes

Films are influential — socially, artistically, politically and especially when it comes to fashion. A great example is the 1982 comedy “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” which made Vans a household name. After asking to use a few pairs of the brand’s checkerboard slip-on sneakers for Sean Penn’s character, surfer-stoner Jeff Spicoli, millions of the same shoe were sold.
