There are few sneakers more iconic than Vans' checkerboard slip-on sneakers, especially in Southern California. But with most looks, it can feel a little too childish or rough around the edges, which is why this J.Crew-ized version of the slip-on is such a winner. It keeps everything so great about the original, but classes it up in suede and more subtle colors than the traditional red and black made famous in the '60s and '70s. At only $70, these are a sharp casual look impossible to look bad in.
