Unhealthily pink frosted cartoon donuts (sprinkled to boot) float in the most aesthetic teal matrix atop Tyler, the Creator's latest Vans collab. Preppy golfer meets SoCal skater chic – that's how Tyler, the Creator rolls.
The new shoes (which were released on Saturday, and all but sold out) are actually a collaboration between Vans and Odd Future (short for Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All), Tyler's hip-hop collective repping quintessential SoCal skater culture – a reworking of Vans' classic Sk8-Hi and Authentic styles (a.k.a hightops and lowtops).
But when all is said and done, they're a completely Tyler, the Creator creation – apparently something he's dreamed up when he was 16; he wrote about it in the Instagram he posted, showing off the kicks.
Tyler, the Creator: making the world his own personal teal donut dreamland, one pair of sneakers at a time.
