Vans slip-ons were designed in 1977, and were worn by skaters, punk rock, and ska lovers. Since teenage skaters colored the rubber midsole of their shoe with black pens or a sharpie for an instant DIY checkerboard look, Vans decided to print the pattern onto the canvas. Today, this checkered fashion has made its way into the mainstream market, even supermodels and celebrities like the Kardashians have been seen wearing checkerboard sneakers as part of their street style. While checkered Vans can cost $50 or more, checkered Blowfish sneakers are more affordable with a price point around $35 dollars.
