The creation of the Vans Slip-On Lite
Vans Slip-On remains one of the most iconic silhouettes that Vans ever created. Formerly known as "Style #98", it first appeared on the shelves in 1977. Its Checkerboard iteration, in particular, took off in 1982 when the movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High immortalized it through Sean Penn’s character.
Today, the classic Vans Slip-On shoes are still highly sought after by loyal Vans followers, skateboarders, and casual consumers for their timeless design. The Vans Slip-On Lite shadows the original's timeless look and casual flair, but it utilizes current technologies and construction, implementing an improved fit and lighter ride.
