In addition to the Pro Classics Collection, Vans had their designers work on a special set of Vault OG Sk8 Hi LX, OG Slip On LX, and backpacks for the 50th Anniversary which they have dubbed the "Checkered Past" collection.
The footwear is composed of a premium leather upper that is woven in alternating leather and suede to recreate the classic checkered design that has become ubiquitous with the brand. There are three classic colorways available: black/white, white/off-white, and blue/white and one very vivid colorway that makes use of the full spectrum of the rainbow. Each OG Sk8 Hi LX will have a matching pair of OG Slip On LX.
In addition to the footwear, Vault has created a matching set of backpacks with the same woven design that can be found on the OG Sk8 Hi and OG Slip On LX. You get your choice of black/white or the vivid orange/blue woven designs.
The Vans 50th Anniversary Vault OG Sk8 Hi and OG Slip On LX and Backpack "Checkered Past" will be available tomorrow, March 16th, from Vault stockists like Vans DQM The General. Check your local shop for availability.
