As someone who has always liked the skater styles of Vans and been a big fan of everything Disney, I am very excited that the two are finally teaming up for an exciting new collection of Disney related products. Unlike the typical thought of Vans as being a shoe retailer, they are so much more. They are expanding their Disney line into their Clothing and Accessories lines as well, including T-Shirts, Hats, Backpacks and Shoes. You can have a whole Disney Collection wardrobe if you feel the need (which I don’t know why you wouldn’t).
The use of the classic Mickey is found on a lot of the previewed products. They will be having lines with Mickey, Minnie, Winnie the Pooh, and Mickey Mouse friends like Donald Duck and Goofy. The collection will have Women’s and Men’s apparel and accessories that include backpacks, socks and hats. For Toddler and Kids you will be able to get Mickey and Minnie Classic Slip-Ons, the Winnie the Pooh Authentic and Mickey & Friends Era shoes. So you can have the whole family in a Disney themed photoshoot ready for Christmas Pictures (if that’s what you like).
If you are anxiously anticipating this release, then you will be happy to know that on the Nerdist Site and Disney Style they state the line should be released mid June. If you are too impatient to wait for someone to tell you when they will be released in stores, you can always go to the Vans Site and sign up for the Disney Email. Vans says (from the general statement on the site) that the line is due to release Fall 2015. I’m not sure which release date to trust but let’s hope for the June one because sooner is better. Vans state that if you sign up for the email they will notify you when the collection is available, so you can be the first kid on your block with the new gear.
Here’s a few of the anticipated items in closer images to tide you over till then.
I have signed up for my email and really love the high tops pictured above. What’s better than a Goofy high top? I can’t think of much else, and I hope you geeked out about the collection as much as I did. Now we just have to wait until it actually arrives in stores to fill our closets with the sheer awesomeness of Vans and Disney.
UPDATE (JUNE 5, 2015):
The Disney and Vans line is now available for sale! You can find all the items on the Vans website.
