Just like the other Vans sneakers, this kick is available in unisex sizing. The Vans ComfyCush Checker Old Skool men’s sizing is from sizes 3.5 to 13, while the Vans ComfyCush Checker Old Skool women’s sizing is between 5 to 14.5 

Despite its narrow fit, this sneaker comes with a traditional lace-up closure that allows users to adjust the width according to their liking.

This checkered sneaker is dressed in a low-top, laced silhouette that is perfect for walking, standing, and even skateboarding. The Vans ComfyCush Checker Old Skool can be paired with jogger pants and a sweater for a sporty look. It can also be worn with ripped jeans, denim shorts, leggings, and dresses.

The upper of this sneaker uses a combination of suede and canvas materials. The reinvented version of the Vans Old Skool kick focuses on tongue stabilization with its one-piece interior construction. It also has a co-molded midsole and outsole for excellent grip and comfort.

For enhanced in-shoe comfort, this kick is engineered with a cotton drill internal lining. Also, the ComfyCush Checker Old Skool features a heritage sidewall look that is also seen in other Vans sneakers.

The original Vans Old Skool sneaker entered the footwear market in 1977 as Vans Style #36. Its release marked the departure of the brand from their signature deck shoe, the Authentic. This skate shoe was also the first to feature the now-iconic Jazz Stripe, which is the hallmark of the brand.

Because of its simple aesthetic, functionality, and easy availability, the Old Skool shoe was re-issued in several colorways and collaborations. These sneakers also had plenty of high-fashion and street-focused versions. 

Today, Vans has widened its horizon by integrating several comfort features into its stylish kicks. One such model is the Vans ComfyCush Checker Old Skool. This kick offers the perfect combo of traction, flexibility, and comfort wrapped in a newly constructed canvas and suede upper.

  • The Vans ComfyCush Checker Old Skool uses a rubber outsole with the signature waffle tread pattern.
  • This sneaker in men’s size 11.5 weighs 340 grams.
  • It has the iconic Jazz Stripe detail on both sides.
