Vans Slip-On sneakers were first introduced in 1977 as the Vans Style #98. The first styling was a riff on a classic slip-on boat shoe, but over time the silhouette has become very similar to the Vans Era low-top. The Vans Slip-On became very popular at first in the California skate scene, with skateboarders like Tony Alva and Stacey Peralta leading the charge wearing pairs in their skate demos. The iconic checkerboard pattern wasn't introduced to the model until Steve Van Doren, son of Vans founder Paul Van Doren, noticed kids at the skatepark drawing checkerboard patterns on the rubber midsole of their Vans. They drew inspiration from the DIY attitude of skateboarders and began to create Vans Slip-Ons with the pattern. A few years later in 1982, the Vans Slip-On Checkerboard hit the silver screen when Sean Penn's slacker character Spiccoli donned a pair in the cult-classic film Fast Times at Ridgemont High. From that point on, Vans Slip-Ons became a global hit and are still among the most popular Vans today. Many collaborations and colorways are frequently released. Brands and artists like Supreme, Brain Dead, Ralph Steadman, Takashi Murakami, Damien Hirst, and more have collaborated on Slip-On Vans.
