Vans Off the Wall Classic Slip-On: A modernized classic sneaker

Vans first introduced the Classic Slip-On, also known as Style #98, in 1977 as footwear for skateboarding and surfing. It is the brand's answer to the growing demand for fuss-less footwear.

Over the years, this "most loved Vans iteration" has undergone countless revamps. Here are a few of the most popular versions:

  • The timeless Checkerboard Slip-On features a retro vibe added with an eye-catching checkerboard print. It seamlessly turned into an iconic version and continuously influenced sports, music, and subculture. 
  • Another variation is the Vans Slip-On Pro, which was designed for the hardcore demands of skateboarding. It stayed authentic to its ancestor's classic and simple style and enhanced to fit the skaters' wear-and-tear needs.
  • Vans Slip-On Platform is apt for wearers who want to level up their style while adding a few inches to their height. The Slip-On's classic looks are modernized with a thicker sole, creating a bolder take to the low-key silhouette. 
  • Vans replaced the traditional canvas upper with full leather to create the Vans Slip-On Leather. This new material gives it a luxurious hint and, at the same time, boosts the overall durability.
