Planning for your Chinese New Year wardrobe? Skater classic Vans has released a new collection that will elevate your foot game.

What is probably the cutest shoe of the collection, this fluffy yellow piece is modelled after a chick. We are predicting that this will sell out first.

A cockerel provides inspiration for the penultimate design – a white slip-on with tassels mimicking the cockerel’s comb (that red spiky growth atop the bird’s head).

And finally, this sleek red high-top design is a paean to the original rooster.

Exclusively available only at the brand’s Ion Orchard boutique, it will go on sale on Wednesday, Dec 28 – so mark your calendars.
