Chinese New Year took place a little more than one week ago. If you’re still in a celebratory mood you can pick up a couple of different offerings from the Vans Year Of The Monkey Pack. Consisting of the Vans Sk8-Hi, Sk8-Hi Slim and Half Cab, all three pairs are inspired by the Chinese New Year.

The three pairs in the pack come in colorways and materials that are closely associated to the Chinese holiday. The Vans Sk8-Hi ($100) is constructed out of a red textured suede with a different shade of red appearing on the stripe. The Sk8-Hi Slim ($115) is composed out of a soft pink leather contrasted by the white stripe on the side panels. Lastly, the Half Cab ($90) comes in multicolor offering done up in a suede and leather construction. Available now, pick up any of the three pairs at select Vans retailers.

Meh. I’ve seen better Chinese New Year themed sneakers this year. Not really diggin’ the aesthetics on these. The only pair that looks decent is the Sk8-Hi, but even then, it’s not something I’ve never seen before.
