Vans and Japanese retailer BEAMS recently unveiled its latest collaborative project which sees the classic checkerboard slip-on get flipped inside out. Although the overall silhouette of the shoe remains unchanged, virtually every element of the shoe’s construction is flipped. The checkboard pattern found on the shoe’s canvas upper is hidden on the inside, the back red heel branding is flipped and the outsole is reversed so that the indents usually found on the gum outsole are raised. Retailing at ¥8,500 JPY (approximately $75 USD), the Vans x BEAMS reverse checkerboard slip-on will be available through a lottery at BEAMS Harajuku location April 1.
