Japanese brand XLarge has had 20 years in the business, so it's only appropriate that the brand celebrates by releasing a new pair of Vans x XLarge Sneakers.

While the theme is predominantly dark purple, the Vans x XLarge Sneakers have splatters of different colors, giving a crazy, artistic twist. It's definitely a wild design with the only subtle areas being the black laces and the white soles with black trims. In addition to this release, the brand plans to also bring out a series of tees and New Era 59Fifty caps to complement these kicks in celebration of XLarge's 20th anniversary.

The Vans x XLarge Sneakers, as well as the accompanying apparel, will be released in XLarge stores and retailers in April. Stats for Splatter-Speckled Kicks Trending: Older & Chilly
