Every brand has a logo, but few can claim a print. Vans’ Checkerboard was first showcased on the world stage by legendary film slacker Jeff Spicoli who was played by Sean Penn in Fast Times at Ridgemont High [1982]. The iconic print is now synonymous with Vans’ “Off The Wall” lifestyle. Vans reintroduces the print on the Era Pro in Checkerboard, showcasing an elevated, performance-driven take on the original shoe.

As the first silhouette designed by skaters for skateboarding, the Era Pro’s inception began when skate legend Tony Alva partnered with Vans by adding a padded collar and heel cap to the original Authentic to create the Era. Fast forward 40 years and the Era is fully engineered with Vans Pro Classics specifications, offering high impact UltraCush HD cushioning sockliners, Pro Vulc construction for better boardfeel, and lasting Duracap rubber reinforcements. The Era Pro remains as timeless as ever, combining two icons into one modern-day classic.
