Vans Is Dropping a David Bowie Collection, and Yes, Patent-Leather Sneakers Are Involved
Vans is back at it with another collaboration, this time honouring David Bowie's iconic legacy. The footwear brand is releasing a collection inspired by the late artist, and you better believe the sneakers are out-of-this-world cool. All six pairs of kicks in the line incorporate prominent details that pay homage to Bowie's greatest hits and various personas.
The Vans Classic Eras are modelled after the album cover art for his first hit single, "Space Oddity," featuring a blue and green polka-dotted pattern. Meanwhile, a pair of Vans Old Skools got the iridescent treatment and showcases the motif perhaps most synonymous with Bowie: the red and blue lightning bolt. Oh, and there's also a red patent-leather pair of Sk8-Hi Platforms, too!
The entire Vans x David Bowie collection launches online and in select stores on April 5. Take an up-close peek at the one-of-a-kind sneakers ahead, and get ready to unleash your inner Ziggy Stardust.
