If you are a “bobaddict,” then you will love these milk tea inspired shoes by Vans, the latest addition to their Old Skool line.

The shoes come in “Gentle Milk Cream,” “Hazelnut Flavor” and “Smoked Milk Tea,” which sound good enough to drink. They retail at about $78 a pair.

The milk tea style has a soft greige tone, the hazelnut has a dark peach tone, and the milk cream has a light beige color.

Milk tea is a popular drink with a rich history from Taiwan, dating back to the 1980s.

The “Gentle Milk Cream” shoe puts a twist on the classic dark piping and white soles of traditional Vans. Instead, it sports a light beige sole and darker piping.

The Old Skool line is part of Vans’ “Autism Awareness” collection.

“The silhouettes feature a calming color palette and unique design details that focus on the senses of touch, sight and sound,” according to Hypebae.

$100,000 of the proceeds will benefit the nonprofit organization A.skate Foundation, which strives to connect autistic children to the world through skateboarding.

These shoes are currently exclusively available through the Taiwanese brand, Fruition.
