Vans x Hello Kitty – Authentic “Black & White” (Review!)

The Vans x Hello Kitty collection hasn’t gone public yet, but if you followed the links I posted a few days back, you can order these now!  I ordered this particular pair for my girlfriend, and all of you will be really impressed with this collaboration effort.  All the details were gone over, which is no surprise if you are a Sanrio fan.  Most, if not all Hello Kitty collaborations are very intricately detailed.  Notice the special box for the release, as well as the wax tissue paper, and hangtag.  The inner soles have the branding as well.  This particular colorway, the black with white HK faces, is pretty dope, and if I was a chick, I’d be rocking these all day long, but as a guy, I will be buying the infant versions, because you know…that’s still okay :).

Enjoy the exclusive pics!

Vans x Hello Kitty – Slip-On “Checkerboard” (available now!)

Heads up ladies!  The Slip-On checkerboard pattern has popped up on the Vans webstore, and is now available for purchase.  Once again, I found the link through Google shopping, because the Vans website doesn’t bring up anything when searching for Hello Kitty.  You’re welcome, and be the first to get ’em!

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!

Vans x Hello Kitty – another sneakpeak!

With the Vans x Sanrio – Hello Kitty collection just around the corner, we have found some new pics to show you, or your girl, or kids!  From the looks of it, these appear to be for the young ones, and we’re not sure if some of these never before seen colors are exclusive to the kids line or not.  As more info becomes available, we will surely post it here.  Thanks to NylonMag for the pics.

Vans x Sanrio x Hello Kitty – (Collection Preview)

There’s been news of this release for awhile now, but the news has officially broke on the Hello Kitty blog, that the collaboration between them and Vans is due to release in June.  Available on, all Vans stores,, and a few Sanrio boutiques, these will have grown women going crazy for the models that are releasing in their sizes.  That’s right, I said grown women!  Forget about all the little girls, because I don’t think Vans knows how crazy the HK fans really are.  This will bring out all of them, that’s for sure.

Here’s a few words from the Hello Kitty blog:

“Sanrio and Vans have teamed up to launch a footwear collaboration for Hello Kitty fans, Vans fans, and sneakerpimps of all ages! Arriving in June, the Vans x Hello Kitty collection will feature an awesome variety of styles and designs, including the Classic slip-on in checkerboard print, low-top laced Authentic in all-over prints and high-top Sk8-Hi D-Lo, in a cute custom print. RAD!

The collection will be available at Vans Retail store, the Vans online store and Vans dealers nationwide as well as select Sanrio Boutique Stores and here at in June 2011. Prices will range from $25 for an infant and $37 for a child’s Classic Slip-On to $55 for the unisex Sk8-Hi D-Lo high top sneaker.”

Vans x Santigold Sneakers

Coming in the Spring of 2011, will be these fresh sneakers for the ladies.  Vans is killing it right now with the collaboration projects, and this one you see here, with music producer/writer/artist Santigold, is wild, and representative of her style.  She’s a talented woman, and this is just one more thing to add to her resume.  Her punk rock style is evident throughout these sneakers, with the black leather, and chains, but it’s got her classy golden style all over it.  Peep the jump for more pics as well.
