These Snakeskin Sneakers Were Designed by Vans and WTAPS

A collaboration between Vans and the design brand WTAPS has resulted in the production of imitation snakeskin sneakers that offer unique and classic styles rolled into one.

The shoes were designed to commemorate Vans' 50th anniversary and come in three colors including blue, black and white. The subtlety of the color choice is countered by the textured nature of the speakers that was created to give off the appearance of the skin on an anaconda. The scaled snakeskin sneakers offer a design that is both sophisticated and also quite different from the vibrant patterns that Vans' shoes normally show off.

This collaboration has brought on a pair of shoes that cater to an audience slightly older than the demographic that Vans' generally focuses on.
