Vans continues to reimagine its flagship Checkerboard models after countless iterations. Following up on a “Checkerboard Flames” pack, the skate imprint now gives its Checkerboard Old Skool and Authentic a special gumsole remix.

Both silhouettes feature a classic all-over print canvas upper, which sits atop a mashup of a gum and white rubber cupsole. The gum heel piece is fused to the rear sidewall with slightly extended foxing tape and the signature “Off the Wall” logo, rounded out with the familiar waffle outsole.

You can pick up these versions of the Vans Authentic and Old Skool now for $100 USD and $120 USD, respectively, at Hype DC’s web store. For more special classics, take a closer look at KITH’s upcoming Coca Cola x Converse Capsule collaboration.
