When your beloved sneakers get too dirty and worn out, it’s tempting to swap them in for a fresh pair in the same style—if it’s not broken, don’t fix it, right? Well, instead of reaching for your old reliables, we think you should mix it up and treat yourself to a cool new upgrade. If you happen to be a Vans fan, you should consider trading in your basic Authentic sneakers for the brand’s new collaboration with Japanese label WTAPS.
Although Vans has teamed up with WTAPS on a slew of other collaborations, we’re quite partial to the latest collection. As part of the collab, Vans created anaconda-inspired embossed leather sneakers in three different colors: white, black, and blue. Dying to get your hands on them? Mark your calendars: They’ll be released on Saturday, August 27. Can’t wait!
