Latest vans Slip On trainer news
Much like Vans’ other staple silhouettes, the Vans Slip On has been around since the 1970s. First known as Style #98, this style was popular in the skate scene within California due to the shoe being worn by many skateboarding icons such as Tony Alva.
The shoe featured Vans’ trademark waffle sole, which proved to be incredibly durable and able to withstand everything skaters put it through. This durability combines with the ease and comfort of the Slip On made it perfect for skaters and every day wear.
Vans Slip On Colorways:
You can’t mention this silhouette without thinking of the classic Slip On Checkerboard. This style was made famous by the movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High which brought the shoes popularity to new heights.
Due to the simple and clean silhouette, the Slip On is also a favourite for Vans to make use of graphic prints. A great example of this is the Vans Vault x Taka Hayashi OG Classic Slip On 59 LX Chimayo!
