David Bowie X Vans Sneaker Collection

Mar 22, 2019

Category: Style

Irrefutably, David Bowie was one of the most unique and influential rock stars of all time. And it was a tremendous misfortune that we had to say goodbye to him after a battle with liver cancer last year. As a tribute to the late-great out-of-this-world musician, Vans has just unveiled a limited-edition sneaker collection that harkens back to his long, weird career.

Four of Vans’ iconic shoes will be getting the Bowie treatment: the Slip-On 47 V DX, Era, Old Skool, and Sk8-Hi models. And each one will include exclusive graphics referencing some of the musician’s most famous works, including Hunky Dory, Space Oddity (off his 1969 self-titled record), and Alladin Sane. The collection will also be getting some unique materials and accents not found elsewhere on these shoe styles, including faux fur done up in the brand’s iconic checkerboard pattern, a vibrant yellow suede, and embroidered patches with Bowie’s lightning bolt iconography. Rumored to drop on April 5th, the collection will be priced between $65-$85.

Purchase: $65+
