Your first look at the Vans Bold Ni Tartan Pack
Get ready to relive your punk phase with Vans' latest line.
Those with an eye for trends will know that 80s and 90s fashion is well and truly back, and it seems streetwear brand Vans got the memo. The label has just debuted a tartan line of its Bold Ni sneakers and it's honestly enough to make you want to pull your leather jacket and chain belts out of storage.
Arriving in both red and green colourways, the Tartan Pack serves as a nice throwback to Vans' skatewear history. The new designs haven't played around too much with the original silhouette, keeping the brand's oversized side stripe branding in pride of place. The kicks also still feature the original low-top profile and tonal stitching, allowing the new tartan upper to do all the talking.
In true tartan style, each colourway offers subtle hints of other hues blended in. The red tartan iteration sees blue, green, black, yellow, white and green tones, while the green pair features elements of blue, black, yellow, white and red.
When and where can you shop the line?

The tartan sneakers are currently retailing for US$95 (around AUD$135), which is in line with other Bold Ni designs we've seen so far.
