When scoping out many of the recent Vans footwear initiatives, most have fallen on the collaborative spectrum as the Anaheim-based brand has teamed up with the likes of The Webster, Dime and NEIGHBORHOOD in recent memory. Its next act comes in the form of this pink and multi-toned Old Skool Trainer that has been exclusively launched through UK retailer Offspring.
The most enticing feature of this new lifestyle makeup is the side walls as they have been done up with the classic checkerboard aesthetic, the boxes of which alternate between vivid accents of blue, red, magenta, yellow green and cream to channel a Damien Hirst-esque vibe. Just adjacent to these playful lateral and medial panels are suede overlays that latch onto the throat, toe boxes and heels, all of which are dialed to a soft, cherry blossom-like pink. Elsewhere on these kicks, you’ll find white accents that are visible through the laces, side stripes, and midsoles. Traditional gum waffle outsoles round off its design down below.
If interested in picking these up, you can find them available right now exclusively via the Offspring online store for $99 USD.
