Vans Just Transformed Your Velour Tracksuit Into Some Seriously Dope Sneakers
Vans is resurrecting velour tracksuits — in sneaker form, of course. The footwear brand teamed up with New York fashion designer Sandy Liang to create a brand-new shoe and accessories collection that's practically bursting at the seams with '90s and early 2000s nostalgia. Highlights include two different sneakers made with a blush-pink velour material reminiscent of your favorite sweatsuit — the Era pair features whimsical metal charms and a built-in ankle bracelet, and the Old Skool pair is covered with crisscross chains. Meanwhile, any fans of animal print will certainly be tempted to nab the fuzzy leopard Platform Slip-Ons or the canvas Sport sneakers that offer a mix of leopard and tartan. As Paris Hilton would say, "That's hot."
The limited-edition Vans x Sandy Liang collection also boasts nine pieces of apparel and accessories, including snakeskin-print biker shorts, a hoodie with matching sweatpants, a light-pink jumpsuit, and a striped collared shirt much like the ones you likely wore to the mall with your friends back in the early aughts. You can shop all the fun items online at both vans.com/sandyliang and sandyliang.info starting Feb. 21, so mark your calendars and set your alarms. Check out the TBT-worthy campaign images and close-up product shots ahead to decide which items you're going to snag.
