The story of the checkerboard begins in 1977 when Vans style #48—the Classic Slip-On— was invented. ... In the late '70s, Steve Van Doren, son of Vans founder Paul Van Doren, noticed that teenage skaters were coloring the rubber midsole of their shoe with black pens to create a checkerboard look.
All images are printed behind 1 millimeter clear poly-carbonate. Includes top side and bottom rail pieces, holes for fender screws, and 3M adhesive. Continuous images which wrap from the top rail to the bottom rail.
