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.

The Purlicue x Vans “Year of the Pig” collection will be arriving at select Vans and partner stores around the globe beginning this January. Be sure to be on the lookout for more information.
