These Fanciful New Vans Sneakers Are Almost Unrecognizable

From the famous black-and-white checkerboard shoes to the iconic curved stripe on Old Skools, Vans sneakers are immediately recognizable—but the brand's latest collaboration might throw you for a loop. Opening Ceremony updated two Vans shoes in a floral satin jacquard material, and the result is a cool new collection that everyone will be dying to get their hands on. 

Of course, Vans is no stranger to collaborations. Recently, the brand teamed up with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam on a line of painterly sneakers that sold out immediately. Vans also tapped a handful of artists to collaborate with Disney in honor of Mickey Mouse's 90th anniversary.

Scroll down to shop the new Vans for Opening Ceremony shoes now. We have a feeling they'll sell out in the blink of an eye.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
