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.
