BILLY’S x Vans Classic Slip-On “Off The Wall Check” // Coming Soon

Vans and Japanese sneaker retailer BILLY’S are making the “Off the Wall” mantra a more literal slogan by highlighting the checkerboard Classic Slip-On with a series of labels featuring the aforementioned phrase throughout the upper. Set on a crisp white midsole, a black heel collar adds a subtle contrast that accents the California-inspired silhouette nicely.

Vetements Checkerboard Slip-On Shoe Could Pose Legal Issue with Vans

Earlier this evening, Vetements previewed an upcoming checkerboard slip-on shoe that is said to be part of their SS18 lineup. Almost immediately speculation surrounded the shoes as to whether or not this was an upcoming project with Vans as the shoes not only are eerily similar to the classic Vans Slip-On, but also sport the trademarked checkerboard pattern across the upper.

VETEMENTS SS18

A post shared by VETEMENTS (@vetements_official) on

We reached out to one of our contacts at Vans where it was confirmed that there was not an official project between Vans and Vetements.

Being that this shoe is not officially a project between the two brands could mean troubles for the fashion label as Vans has repeatedly defended their trademark of the iconic checkerboard pattern in US and foreign courts.

Vans first used the checkerboard pattern on footwear in 1981 and make it an iconic print throughout the decade on a variety of models of their footwear.  On February 20, 1990 the US Trademark office granted Vans with the trademark for the pattern on footwear.

Jerry Lorenzo Details Upcoming Fear of God x Vans Collaborations

Jerry Lorenzo — dubbed 2016’s most influential man in sneaker culture by our own Darren Griffin — is adding to his resume in 2017 and ideally our rotations. Recently on IG, the designer announced that he has seven collaborations in total releasing with Vans for the Fall/Winter season.

Of the seven, four will be via Vans Vault under his Fear of God line, while the other three will be inline Vans in conjunction with his F.O.G. imprint. When previewing the collection, the designer who pulls heavy inspiration and themes from his strong Christian faith wrote the Bible verse Joshua 10:24-25, a passage that plays off strength and the Lord conquering one’s enemies by standing atop them (perhaps the reasoning for the verse on the midsole).

Easily one of the best collaborations of 2016, we’re excited to see what Jerry and Vans cook up this time around. Let us know what you hope to see in the comments below.

…3 @vans coming with @fog… and 4 #vansvault with @fearofgod …Joshua 10:24-25 #fallwinter2017
