Called “The Fat Year,” the sneakers are inspired by the Chinese Zodiac calendar’s Year of the Pig. The footwear is described as “laid back” but “not lazy.”

The collab features cool, new, and supersized designs of the brand’s classics, Old Skool, Sk8, and Era. From the images released on social media, Era looks to be revamped with a luscious pink and chocolate colorway, as well as another variation in red and white.

The laces are exaggerated, too, coming in extra-wide and flat. The brand’s Facebook cover photo also reveals that the words “THE FAT YEAR” are also printed in black on the soles.

Vans Philippines has yet to reveal the full collection, but promises that it “will be available soon.”

Would you wear these on Chinese New Year?
