Vans has dropped a new thermochome pack, seeing its classic Old Skool and Slip-On silhouettes wrapped in a color-changing material. Both silhouettes feature the skate brand’s classic checkerboard motif, with purple checks turning into pink with changes in temperature.

The Slip-On checkerboard features light blue alongside the color-shifting squares, while the Old Skool sees the heat sensitive squares sitting on both the lateral and medial midfoot panels. The Old Skool is then finished with a light blue side stripe and orange panelling. Take a look at the two sneakers in the gallery above and head over to the Vans web store to pick up a pair.
