52. Vans

Besides Jeff Spicoli prominently rocking checkerboard slip-ons in Fast Times At Ridgemont High, the Complex era saw a huge resurgence in old-school Vans. Whether it was The Pack's one good song talking about how they proudly rocked the kicks, Lil Wayne proudly proclaiming that he wears them with skinny pants, or Tyler, The Creator pretty much always being spotted in a pair of waffle-soled sneakers, Vans' presence in our world simply can't be denied.
