You may have heard that Pantone’s Color of the Year is Veri Peri, a soft-electric blend of blue hues with violet-red undertones. It’s like lavender but bolder and bluer. The color is said to represent the recent merge of our physical and digital worlds, to be a color of emotion and creativity. Veri Peri is popular in new home decor and wall art trends. We like how the hue looks on the human body—more specifically, on feet. We found these Gum Old Skool Vans, the most classic of skate shoes, in the bold Color of the Year.
