The Vans Checkerboard Slip-On Returns to Ridgemont High

Date: February 14 2020

By: Cesca Benson


Even though the inimitable Vans Checkerboard Slip-On had been kicking around since the late 70s, it was catapulted into pop culture history on the feet of Sean Penn’s Jeff Spicoli in 1982’s Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Now, Vans are throwing back to the cult film, releasing a Slip-On built to ’82 specs through their Anaheim Factory Collection. The classic checks are joined by exaggerated foxing and Fast Times branding wrapped around the midsole. Thankfully, the SoCal stalwarts have afforded us one modern comfort: an UltraCush-infused footbed.

Get your hit of Hollywood nostalgia when these roll into stores in March.

In the meantime, get reacquainted with everyone's favourite stoner below.
