Vans Updates Their Iconic Checkerboard With Two New Styles

Any fan of Vans is a fan of their Old-Skools, the classic sneaker that everyone seems to have. Well, it’s always nice to switch things up a little, and just in time for upcoming Lunar New Year celebrations!

ComfyCush Slip-Skool


Vans Checkerboard ComfyCush Slip-Skool in Black/White (USD75)


Introducing the hybrid Vans ComfyCush Slip-Skool. A combination of two of the brand’s most iconic silhouettes, the sneaker features a canvas upper based on the Slip-On, covered by a translucent Old-Skool casing made from a synthetic Feelmax material. Inside lies Van’s ComfyCush technology, so you know these are bound to be comfy kicks.

Available in two colourways, we can imagine anyone rocking a pair, whether you stick to the classic Checkerboard pattern or go for a little pop of colour.

Stacked Pack Collection

Can’t get enough checkerboard print? The sneaker giant has also just unveiled the Stacked Pack Collection — there’s no way your checkerboard cravings won’t be satisfied.



Fitted with a platform sawtooth outsole and an oversized Checkerboard pattern, this reinterpretation of four classic silhouettes will elevate any look — literally. Unfortunately, only the Era Stacked silhouette is available in Singapore, but let’s hope the other three hit our shores soon.


The Checkerboard Era Stacked is available at Vans retail stores at $99, while the Vans ComfyCush Slip-Skools are available online at US75.
