Marvel and VANS Launch a Superhero-Themed Collab
This summer, VANS celebrates a very special class reunion with all of the superheroes from the Marvel universe. Prepare to nerd out over the extensive Marvel x VANS “OFF THE WALL” collab with 70-plus styles for fans of the popular comics.
The Avengers unite on a special Old Skool iteration. A blue suede toe cap and red shield on the heels reference Captain America, while the tongue mimics Ironman’s high-tech suit of armor. The silver leather wing Sidestripes stand for Thor, as the bright green and purple tones of course represent the Hulk.
The Authentic then dons a more old school-oriented look, featuring additonal characters such as Black Panther, Black Widow and Spider-Man in an allover print.
In addition, several fan-favorite super heroes receive their very own shoes. Banking on the overwhelming success of Black Panther, the Sk8-Hi presents some serious with Wakanda vibes. Dressed in an all-black guise with golden eyelets, the unique upper texture references King T’Challa’s vibranium suit.
An angry Hulk then smashes his toes through the Classic Slip-On’s signature checkerboard pattern, making full use of the model’s laceless construction. And another Classic Slip-On with Peter Parker in full hero dress makes your Spidey senses tingle. Finally, Deadpool also makes a surprise cameo with a special Sk8-Hi that uses a striking red and black leather upper.
Adding an extra dose of female power to the collab, memorable heroines also represent the women of Marvel. A Classic Slip-On pays homage to Black Widow, decked out in a stealthy all-black colorway to reference her bodysuit. Captain Marvel then inspires a Sk8-Hi with red suede and blue canvas uppers. Gold accents then hit the sidestripe and the cut-out eight-point star on the heels.
An all-star cast of Medusa, Scarlet Witch, Storm and more rounds out the women’s line-up with a retro-styled all-over print on the VANS Authentic.
Now it’s common knowledge that not all superheroes wear capes. But with the Marvel x VANS collection, they do wear all kinds of apparel that perfectly goes with their sneakers. The collab features anything from coach jackets, sweats and tees to headwear, socks and backpacks.
Since swimming season already is in full effect, a rich selection of superhero slippers comes at just the right time. Once again, standout characters such as Hulk, Spider-Man and The Avangers lend their signature aesthetics to the poolside-ready range. Last but not least, the Marvel x VANS collection also features several kids and toddlers styles.
