Fresh from releasing its latest collaboration with Timex, UK-based retailer END. has linked up with Vans for a new take on the Californian label’s iconic checkerboard pattern. Featuring takes on the Slip-On and Old Skool silhouette, the “Vertigo” pack sees the black and white motif reworked into an optical-whirl pattern across the uppers.

Both sneakers feature a jacquard woven upper, which makes the design of every pair slightly different and entirely unique. The Slip-On features the pattern across its entire upper, with true white stitching, panels of tan leather and a premium pig-skin lining. For the Old Skool, END. have offset the eye-catching “Vertigo”design with black panelling around the laces, toe box and heel unit. This silhouette will also release with three sets of laces, including a set of checkerboard laces.

You can register for the “Vertigo” capsule now via END. Launches ahead of its December 8 release date.

Vans has also recently linked up with long-term collaborator Taka Hayashi for a new premium capsule.
