Vans Year of the Monkey Pack

Vans Year of the Monkey Pack

It’s time for a look at all three styles in the 2016 Vans Year of the Monkey pack. The specially themed pack includes two versions of the Sk8-Hi alongside a wild Half Cab colorway. If Chinese New Year-themed kicks are your thing, this might be one of Vans best yet.

Realistically both styles of the Sk8-Hi help carry Vans Year of the Monkey pack. The pulled suede of the red pair blends quality materials with and eye-catching colorway. The design is inspired by the Golden Monkey stamp that commemorates the date while embodying the curious spirit of the monkey.

The pink pair opts for a distressed upper that looks buttery af. The white sole and laces add some pop to the kicks. A leather liner adds some luxury to the special release.

The Half Cabs in the pack are another story. A mix of leather and suede comprise the upper, but tradition ends there. Instead, Vans opts for a combination of five or six colors on the upper. The result is a patchwork look that’s just wild enough to work.

You can find the red Sk8-Hi and Half Cab via Vans online store for $100 and $90 USD, respectively. The pink Sk8-Hi ($115 USD) and sizes of the others are available also at Packer Shoes.
