Vans and Purlicue Team up for a 'Year of the Pig' Colab

Date: December 14 2018

By: Sebastian Bugeja-Drinkell


The Chinese Lunar New Year is approaching and, to celebrate the Year of the Pig, Vans have teamed up with Purlicue to create an exclusive collection of four shoes. Two Sk8-Hi models, as well as two Era models, have been given a pig-inspired treatment. Regular canvas uppers sit a-top a coloured midsole. The motto of the collection — 'Laid Back, Not Lazy' — and the traditional Chinese term 'The Fat Year' has been plastered on the outsole. All four pairs come with an extra pair of wide cotton laces.

These are set to drop in January. While an exact date hasn't been confirmed, keep it locked here for any updates.
