Vans teams up with Disney & Pixar to go infinity and beyond with their latest Toy Story-inspired collection.
Vans Classics hit a real homerun with their collaboration with Disney earlier this year. It was the first time I have ever seen people buying 10 pairs of sneakers plus apparel. For fall, Vans continues their partnership with Disney with the newest wave of toon inspired footwear. It appears that they have pulled the 101 Dalmatians pair from the archives and copied a very similar model from the 80's made in the USA era. The pups also grace a tonal white Sk8 Hi which, at a glance, looks like the Snoopy Vault from last year. In addition to the Dalmatians, Alice in Wonderland gets the nod with a through the rabbit hole themed Sk8 Hi.
The Disney x Vans Classics 101 Dalmatians and Alice in Wonderland collection is available now both in store and online at Hot Rod LA. Check your local Vans shop for more.
Vans started as a company in California where you could bring your own fabric and then them made into shoes. That's why there are so many one-off pairs out there from decades ago. To that end, Vans has maintained the option to create custom models through their website. While you can no longer send in your own fabric for those hot one-offs, they have kept a healthy supply of prints and fabrics in the shop. Coming off the success of the limited edition Star Wars custom options, as well as the huge response from the Disney Young at Heart Collection, Vans will be offering custom Disney models next month.
We got a preview of what will be in store with these two Sk8 Hi models. It looks like there will be a Mickey and Pluto print and an all over Minnie print up for grabs. Choosing the limited edition Disney prints will add $5 to your custom order, but that's a modest hike to get something you had a hand in designing.
The Custom Disney Vans models are set to be available in the Vans.com custom shop on September 4th. The Sk8 Hi will run you $90. Keep it plugged in here for more detail as we get them.
Along with the rest of the "Young at Heart" Collection, Disney and Vans have partnered with Journey's to release an exclusive colorway of the Classic Authentic. A playful beach scene is depicted on the canvas upper of Mickey playing the guitar with Minnie and the gals dance hula nearby. Above them, Donald strums the uke while perched upon Goofy's back as he shreds the waves.
The Disney x Vans Authentic Aloha Mickey is slated to drop at all Journey's locations starting in July. They are available in some stores now as well online. However, if you purchase in store, you will also receive a limited edition Disney x Vans beach towel with your purchase.
A few months ago, we broke the news an upcoming Disney x Vans Classics collection. We are happy to say that Vans and Disney have released full details and official shots of the entire collection. The collection will have something for everyone, from classic silhouettes to apparel and accessories. If you missed out on the Disney collection from Vault a couple years ago, or even if you didn't, you'd be remiss if you didn't pick up a couple pieces.
The Disney x Vans "Young at Heart" footwear and apparel collection will be available this summer from Vans.
