Japanese sneaker retail label BILLY'S returns for the Spring/Summer 2018 season with the Side Wall Check-patterned Slip-Ons. The retailer often releases exclusive Vans' silhouettes and this time, the range is comprised of a red and a blue colorway in the Side Wall Check design. The design pays homage to the label's original 1979 footwear model, with the detailing adorning the sides.
Each pair of shoes take on a color-blocking upper of tan and either red or blue and boasts the respective tonal checkerboard accents across the midsoles. There are also little Trademark details found inside the checkerboard midsoles as an extra nod to the original models. The shoes are now available for purchase online at BILLY'S.
