Nordstrom recently teamed up with Vans to launch a line of unisex sneakers with a adorably fuzzy exterior. With the ongoing success of Rihanna's Fur Puma Slides, these new sneakers demonstrate that footwear isn't always about practicality.

The new Nordstrom X Vans collection consists of Vans' 'Old Skool' Sneaker in a baby blue and pastel pink shade. What truly sets the lace-up sneakers apart is the cloud of faux-fur affixed to the front and back of the shoe. The design was dreamed up by Nordstrom's vice president of creative partnerships Olive Kim, who wanted to combine quirky elements with a classic sneaker silhouette.

For those who appreciate the sneaker's fuzzy exterior, the rest of the Pop-In@Nordstrom collection features some equally unique designs that range from colorblocked patterns to perforated slip-ons.
