Editor’s Notes: Despite minimalist simplicity of most Vans models, the heritage skate brand still finds new ways of putting fresh spins on its classics. The California OG continues to surprise us with strong colorways and reinterpretations of existing designs such as the iconic checkerboard pattern, which has been updated with desert camo on three of the brand’s most-loved silhouettes.
