Vans x Peanuts – Collection Two (10.6.17)


Words via Vans:

“Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, continues its long-standing relationship with Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang in its latest collection of footwear, apparel and accessories this October. Using original illustrations by Charles M. Schulz, the collection pays homage to the iconic characters and artwork from the original Peanuts holiday television specials.

Charles M. Schulz illustrations take new shape across the Sk8-Hi Reissue and Old Skool styles using the entire silhouette as a canvas. Original designs of Charlie Brown and Snoopy take over the monochromatic silhouettes and are outfitted with leather Sidestripes. Kicking it back to the comic strip days is an Authentic that has been decorated with holiday themed comic strip scenes. Peanuts fans can get their dancing shoes on in an Authentic or Old Skool model that depicts the whole Peanuts Gang during the memorable dance party scene from the animated television special, ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’.

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the Half Cab, Vans designers have included Snoopy and his family members across the canvas panels of the Half Cab. Peek closely and you may see Snoopy’s brother, Spike, on the Half Cab’s tongue label with a Checkerboard printed hat and Schulz signature embossed into the suede toe box. Vans’ very own Checkerboard Slip-On has been reimagined this season to include the many playful expressions of Snoopy that can be found within print. The Sk8-Hi Reissue gets a premium upgrade with leather materialization and has been embossed on the quarter-panels to include the subtle presence of Snoopy and a hidden Woodstock can be seen on the tongue label. A very special Classic Slip-On was created to celebrate the everlasting friendship between Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Woodstock and features plush patches on the vamp of each Slip-On and is finished with ‘Best Friends’ embossed into the front toe bumper of each shoe.

Signature Vans x Peanuts apparel and accessories will be available in a range of prints that match the footwear assortment, including the monochromatic Charlie Brown and Snoopy illustrations and Snoopy’s family for men. Women will have a playfully pink collection of the Peanuts dance party apparel and a tonal collection dedicated to Snoopy. Even the littlest Vans and Peanuts fans will receive their very own assortment of footwear that will be available in kids and toddler sizing including the comic strip and dance party Authentic. Just in time for Halloween, the Sk8-Hi Zip includes glow-in-the-dark Snoopy and Woodstock dressed up as mummies while the Old Skool V features easy hook-and-loop straps and uses the Snoopy Checkerboard print. Tiny tykes get their very own Classic Slip-On that features Snoopy with a plush tail detail at the heel.”

The latest Vans x Peanuts collection of footwear, apparel and accessories will be available to shop in Vans retail stores and on October 6th!

Vans x Dallas Clayton – Inspiration Collection (Available Now!)


Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, comes together with celebrated artist and author, Dallas Clayton to present a collection of footwear inspired by the vibrant illustrations brought to life in his popular children’s books. Available for adults and children, the Vans x Dallas Clayton collection will inspire people of all ages to never stop dreaming.

Kicking off the collection are three styles for adults of all ages that illuminate Dallas’ imaginative world, combining fantasy and inspiration into three inspirational prints. On the Old Skool silhouette, Dallas chooses his signature all-over doodle print of squiggles, lines and shapes to fill the canvas. Paying homage to a pair of Vans that Dallas customized himself, the artist emphasizes an all-over rainbow design across the Authentic. Exclusive to this collection, Dallas created a custom character motif that honors Vans’ spirit to highlight a skateboarding unicorn with the positive affirmation, “Keep It Movin.”

Kids and Toddlers can dream big in four Vans footwear styles that bring Dallas Clayton’s original artwork to life. The Sk8-Hi Zip is reimagined to include colorful, out of this world unicorns while the Old Skool is transformed with Dallas’ fun-loving doodles. The skating unicorn makes his way onto the Authentic, which is upgraded to include a pull-tab and elastic laces on the toddler style. Rounding out the kids and toddlers selection is an exclusive style that blends a group of imaginative characters across the Classic Slip-On.

The Vans x Dallas Clayton footwear collection is dedicated to the dreamers of the world and each pair comes with a sticker with Dallas’ positively thought provoking saying “Stand Here and Think About Someone You Love”. The collection comes to life this March and ranges from $37 – $70 and will be available to shop in Vans retail stores and online at

Vans x Hello Kitty Collection (Available now!)

The initial Hello Kitty collaboration with Vans was wildly successful, and Vans would be foolish to not keep a good thing going like this.  Well, there hasn’t been much press info about this year’s collection, but Undefeated has just received their first shipment of Hello Kitty Vans.  A few Slip-Ons for the kiddos have shown up, but the attention grabbing Sk8-Hi, with the familiar black canvas with HK heads all over print is going to be the must cop for the ladies, this season.  The shoe comes complete with the signature red bow on the top of the shoe, which is a trademark identifier amongst the Hello Kitty fanatics worldwide!

Note, that these most likely are an in-store release, but your local Vans store should be getting their shipments very soon!  Call up Undefeated Silverlake to see what they have for you!

Vans x Hello Kitty – Capsule Collection (2012)

It looks like Hello Kitty’s back for the 2012 season!  I came across these samples while on eBay, and thought some of you’d like to see them.  These are all in a kids sz13, so I don’t know if any of these will be available in women sizes as well, but if any new info comes along, I’ll be sure to pass it along, because who doesn’t love Hello Kitty?!  If you want to purchase these, then dingosk8store on eBay is selling them.

Vans x Hello Kitty – Authentic Lo Pro All-Over Print (available now!)

The last bit of Hello Kitty Vans info I have for the moment, is of the Authentic Lo Pro’s, with the all-over print.  Another girly-girl print, that is probably more popular with the kiddos, but you never know!  Once again, here’s the link to the Womens sizes on the Vans online store.

Vans x Hello Kitty – Authentic Pink (available now!)

Next up, from the Vans x Hello Kitty collaboration, is the pink Authentic.  This is another ladies favorite, and is also up for sale in Womens sizes on the Vans online store.  Cop now!  Kids sizes were also listed as of last night, but the links are dead.  Here’s a little hint, keep checking on Google Shopping for “Hello Kitty Vans”, because there’s evidence that the pages are built, but the links keep changing.  Here’s the link to the Womens sizes on these.  Happy hunting!

Vans x Hello Kitty – Authentic Black/True White (available now!)

Heads up all you ladies who have been dying for this release!  A few models from the Vans x Hello Kitty collaboration are starting to show up at your local Vans retailers.  I even found a link to the actual Vans page, where these are already up for sale, but it can’t be found by searching on the actual Vans site.  You got the drop here first, and don’t hate me if the link changes, because the Sk8-Hi D-Lo has already changed, since last night.  Vans is probably trying to organize their pages, before an official release, but my order has already gone through, for my girl.  You can also find a few models at Nordstrom and Journeys online stores as well.  You’re welcome!

First up, is the Black and True White Authentic.  I’m guessing this will probably be the most popular model from this collection, and the Vans online store is the only place you can find these in Womens sizes as of yet!
