After February’s Led Zeppelin collaboration, Vans is looking to yet another legend of rock and roll for inspiration: they’ve joined forces with the estate of David Bowie for a four-shoe capsule collection. Consisting of a Vans Old Skool, a Vans Era, a Vans SK8-Hi, and a Vans Slip-On 47 V DX, each shoe nods to a classic LP from Bowie’s extensive catalogue with its unique colorway and special embellishments. The Old Skool calls upon the lightning bolt from Aladdin Sane, blue polka dots and the signature scrawl from Space Era adorn the Era, Ziggy Stardust’s lightning bolt and typeface grace the Sk8-Hi, and Hunky Dory’s mustard yellow embellishments and font appear on the Slip-On. Classic Vans accents like checkerboard patterns, red heel badges, and dark gum outsoles are prevalent throughout to lock in the co-branded look.
Release Date: April 5th
