Few shoe brands are synonymous with a print like Vans and its checkerboard designs.

With that in mind, Vans executed the pattern in shoe styles designed by skaters for skateboarding — the Era Pro.  Skateboarder Jason Dill models the red and white canvas style in the Checkerboard Pro Classics lookbook.

The Era Pro Checkerboard debuted on Tuesday and is available for $60 on and at your nearest Vans location.

The low-top sneaker features blue single-wrap foxing tape, complementing the red and white checkerboard motif, as well as the brand’s signature waffle outsole and UltraCush HD sockliners.
