Following 2015’s “Year of the Sheep” Collection and its monochrome color palette, Vans is back to unveil 2016’s vibrant Chinese New Year three-pack. For the forthcoming Year of the Monkey, the sneakers have been designed along the theme of ‘Monkey Rules’ and draw inspiration from China’s commemorative stamps of 1980, 1992 and 2004. The result is a Sk8-Hi Reissue with a tonal red suede upper, black liner and white sole, a pink Sk8-Hi slim with yellow accents, and a multicolored suede Half-Cab, all with premium materials. The “Year of the Monkey” Collection will be available at select Vans retailers around the globe starting December 28. Meanwhile, follow the Vans China crew on a skate ride in the new #MONKEYRULES gear in this photo series.
