Whether you like it or not, the chunky dad shoe trend is here to stay, and Vans is the latest brand to join the party with the Varix sneaker. Dressed in an autumn-ready hue, the Varix is inspired by the California-based brand's late '90s aesthetic, featuring the bulky aesthetic that you either love to bits or hate with a deep, burning passion.
A puffy white mesh serves as the base, while the upper is adorned with a slew of leather and suede overlays — most of which call upon earthy colours like grey, tan, and burnt orange, although mint green and pink provide pops of flair as well.
A cup sole ensures the shoes are as skate-ready as they are stylish, and Vans' signature waffle pattern makes an appearance on the brown outsole. Set to release in Europe very soon, let us know if you'll be copping the Vans Varix down in the comments section below!
