Vans looks to its past to bring forth two Checkerboard patterns from the Vans archives as an update to the Anaheim Factory Pack. First introduced last season, the Anaheim Factory Pack takes elements from the original make and model of Vans Classic Icons and reinvents them with the Vans’ innovative UltraCushÔ foam technology for premium comfort.
The Authentic 44 DX and Style 36 DX were developed to match the original construction of the Classics that were produced in the first Vans factory in Anaheim, California. Cotton laces, heavy 10 oz. canvas, style numbers, original drill lining found on the heel of each shoe and a higher glossed foxing tape that captures the sheen that came from the original vulcanization process, are all design elements that were seen over 51 years ago. As a nod to the retro styling, Vans designers dressed the Authentic 44 DX and Style 36 DX with Checkerboard in OG black and mauve colorways. Along with the timeless design, each model has been upgraded with an UltraCushÔ sockliner delivering modernized comfort.
The Anaheim Factory Pack pays homage to Vans’ humble beginnings that led to five decades of pinnacle design. To catch the limited run of Classics, visit selected Vans stores and vans.eu now.
