VANS Drops a CheckerboardThe original VANS Checkerboard Slip-On is a skate culture classic that emerged in the '70s. The iconic shoe was devised after founder Steve Van Doren saw kids draw checkerboard patterns on the white... rubber soles, and henceforth, the simple but bold design has lived on throughout the decades. This year, VANS is bringing the retro Checkerboard print to other signature models including the Old Skool, SK8-Hi and Sixty-Seven. The grid-like print finds itself on the body of the uppers, accompanied by black paneling, white Vans stripes and crisp white cupsoles. The VANS Checkerboard series will launch on March 24 in VANS Taiwan locations and ABC-MART.

Carhartt WIP's Team Takes OnCourtesy of Thrasher Magazine, we get a look at Carhartt WIP skaters Max Palmer, Chris Milic and Andrew Wilson, along with Nolan Benfield and Cocho, as they shred through Havana, Cuba in a... seven-minute, Sean Dahlberg-directed video dubbed "La Fruta Bomba." As with any once forbidden city, skaters are typically among the first tourists to investigate its streets, hoping to find the next killer spot before anyone else does. Unfortunately, this crew was in for a bitter-sweet surprise. Here's an excerpt from Dahlberg's first-person account on Thrasher: First and foremost there is little to no skate culture in Cuba. Many kids aspire to ride a skateboard, but the country just doesn't have the means to support that yet. There are no skate shops on the island and almost no access to the Internet,...

Kanye West Just Settled a $2.5Last May, Hungarian composer Gabor Presser filed a $2.5 million USD lawsuit against Kanye West, alleging that Kanye sampled the veteran artist's 1969 piece "Gyöngyhajú Lány" without the appropriate... permission. As Pagesix reports, Kanye has apparently settled the suit outside of court. While official confirmation of the price-tag attached to the settlement has yet to surface, one can assume that Yeezy had to shell out a pretty hefty check to satisfy Presser. Gabor Presser claimed that the "Gyöngyhajú Lány" sample utilized for "New Slaves" was used without any sort of specific deal between the two parties, even though Presser initially agreed to Kanye's use of the composition and was given a $10,000 USD advance. However, the $10,000 USD check was never cashed and Presser's hopes for a...

In what may arguably be the pinnacle of... brand partnerships throughout fashion and especially footwear, some may take the side that forced collaborative efforts or boring and unoriginal matchings are flooding the market today.

Wheelys Opens 24/7 CashierlessLoyal readers may remember the Wheelys name from our piece on retail's fiction-free future. After the success of its experimental Viken flagship, the chain has opened its first 24/7 cashierless store... in Shanghai.

In an attempt to deter shoplifters, customers must first link their credit card to the Wheelys app. The store's AI is hooked up to its omnipresent cameras to greet individual customers. Clients then use the Wheelys app to scan their purchases and the app reports if stock is low. Check out the video above and let us know if you'd choose Wheelys over Amazon Go.

The competition-winning design for the Pont de Bondy station may not be ready until close to 2030 but it looks set to be worth the wait with its spiral form, terracotta cladding and skylights that bring natural light right down to the deepest platform.
