With the Chinese Lunar New Year right around the corner, Vans has partnered up with Chinese brand Purlicue to celebrate the Year of the Pig with a lineup of exclusive footwear.
Donning four shoes in total, the collection wields two unique colorways each of Vans’ signature Era and Sk8-Hi models. The “Year of the Pig” collection ironically emphasizes a “Laid Back, Not Lazy” motto, adding the traditional Chinese greeting “The Fat Year” on the shoes vulcanized waffle outsoles.
The Era models feature canvas and suede uppers with a pink iteration paired with bold black outsoles, and a white version with vibrant red outsoles. The Sk8-Hi models utilize a similar canvas and suede upper, with the color scheme from the Era being reversed. The Sk8-His are also paired with a magnified, interchangeable side stripe. All shoes come with wide cotton laces in tonal colors and an exaggerated “Off The Wall” heel tab.
