Vans' new milk tea collection features the appropriately named "Milk Foam", "Hazelnut" and "Smoked Milk Tea" colour ways.
We might be locked away because of the coronavirus outbreak right now, but that doesn't mean we can't start getting our post-quarantine lewks together. Thank goodness Vans are coming through to save the day and our footwear collection.
Vans have launched a line of milk tea inspired designs for their iconic Old Skool shoe. Milk tea (sometimes known as bubble tea, pearl milk tea or boba milk tea) is a Taiwanese tea-based beverage containing chewy tapioca or jelly balls.
The sneakers come in three muted nude tones complete with a crisp white sole and black piping. "Milk Foam" is a light nude colour, "Hazelnut" is a darker peachy tone and "Smoked Milk Tea" is a soft greige. For now, the designs are only available at Taiwanese shop Fruition and they retail for around £66, or $79.
That's not the only new design coming from Vans, though, the fashion brand has created a range for kids and adults living with autism. Not only are the designs sensory-inclusive, but a minimum of $100,000 of the proceeds will be donated to A.skate, a non-profit organisation that allows children with autism to receive skateboarding lessons in an environment equipped for their sensory needs.
