These are a great update of the classic black and white checkerboard pattern, which I owned 30 years ago in college. They feel appropriate for my 51-year-old mom self--because at heart, I'm still a 20-year-old, fun-loving woman who likes to add a touch of quirky cool to my casual style. My only caveat is that they feel a little more cheaply made than some of my other Vans.
