Hello spring.

Vans has given two of its most popular shoe styles a pastel update.

Both leather Authentic and Old Skool styles have received pastel colourways, in the form of ‘Sepia Rose’ and ‘Ice Flow’.

As the names suggest, ‘Sepia Rose’ is a light, dusty pink, while ‘Ice Flow’ is a pale green hue. But if you ask us, it’s all a bit reminiscent of fairy floss.

Both fresh pastel colourways are available now exclusively at Platypus, head here to grab yourself a pair before they go.
