"Our limited edition ‘Yukiko’ (or ゆきこ in Japanese) Highland shoe takes its title from the popular Japanese girl’s name. Loosely translating into “Happy Child” in English, the vibrant pair draws influence from the colourful hues found at cosplay events around the globe. For those who don’t know, the practice of cosplay is where anime and manga fans dress up as their beloved Japanese characters, sporting highly detailed decorative costumes."
The size? x Vans Highland “Yukiko” is scheduled to release via the size? web store, app and in-store on Friday, March 8.
