Vans has started a tradition of honoring the Chinese New Year with models that pay an homage to that year's corresponding zodiac animal. 2016 is the Year of the Monkey, and for that, Vans chose the Sk8 Hi and Half Cab. For the color blocking, Vans chose to take design elements from 1980's Golden Monkey Stamp which popularized stamp collecting in Asia.
The Half Cab is the stand out model from this collection, with a patchwork of colored suede in navy and royal blues, golden yellow, red, and green on a white leather background. The Sk8 Hi has a very nappy tonal red suede upper and smooth leather jazz stripe.
The Vans Classics Year of the Monkey Sk8 Hi and Half Cab Collection are available now from Vans.com and retail for $100 and $90 respectively. Check your local Vans shop for availability.
