Vans is joining the CNY game, teaming up with Chinese brand Purlicue for a fattened-up Year of the Pig release.
‘The Fat Year’ drop takes two fan-favourites and plumps them up. The Old Skool sports a bloated Jazz Stripe and oversized checkerboard pattern, while the Era takes the same red and off-white combo and simplifies it, keeping the checks to the tongue and the attention on the fiery sole.
Other details are beefed up too. Vans’ signature name plate has been blown up, as have the laces, and ‘The Fat Year’ is printed across the sole.
If you want to get your hands on these, they’re available now at Suppa.
