Shoppers go wild for Vans trainers that look just like Irn Bru

‘Need to purchase immediately’: Shoppers go wild over orange and blue trainers that look VERY similar to a can of Irn Bru – and they’ve already sold out online

  • Shoppers have been sent into a frenzy over trainers that look like a can of Irn Bru
  • The £60 shoes from American brand Vans are in the same colours as the drink
  • After a tweet about the quirky shoes went viral they sold out on ASOS

Shoppers have been sent into a frenzy over a pair of trainers that look strikingly similar to a can of Irn Bru.

The two-tone shoes by American skate wear brand Vans feature orange and blue panels in almost the exact same shade as the Scottish fizzy drink.

A Twitter user pointed out the similarity and dozens of others said they wanted a pair for their wardrobe. The style is now sold out on ASOS.

They have the same orange and blue colour scheme as the drink, which is hugely popular in Scotland

The £60 shoes are in the Vans Anaheim Old Skool style in the ‘Og Blue And Gold’ colours.

But many shoppers thought the colours were closer to the Irn Bru brand than Vans’ signature style.

The resemblance was first spotted by Twitter user Charlotte Wilson, who couldn’t decide whether she wanted a pair.

She tweeted: ‘These Vans look like cans of Irn Bru and I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.’

The tweet has now had over 1,300 likes, and many people said they were desperate to buy some.

One tweeted: ‘Where are these sold, I’m buying. Love Bru.’ Another wrote: ‘oh my god. kinda love them kinda hate them.’

‘Need to purchase immediately,’ a third agreed.

Irn Bru became one of the victims of the sugar tax when it was revealed that the brand had ditched its original recipe for a less sugary one.

The tax means that any drink containing more than 5g sugar per 100ml will come with an 18p-per-litre tax, while those with more than 8g sugar per 100ml now have a 24p-per-litre tax slapped on them. 

Other brands have refused to alter their recipes to meet the sugar tax.

Coca-Cola is selling smaller bottles at higher prices in response, with a 1.75 litre bottle of Coke shrinking to 1.5 litres but increasing in price by 20p to £1.99.
