In the hall of fame of iconic sneakers, you can definitely put the checkerboard Vans slip-on amongst the greats. The checkers have long been associated with the brand and were immortalized in Fast Times at Ridgemont High when they were found on the feet of everyone's favorite stoner, Jeff Spicoli. This season, J.Crew is updating the style with a "baltic" blue suede upper that's embossed with those oh so familiar squares.
