Vans x Disney ‘Young at Heart.’
American skate brand Vans and iconic children’s entertainment company Disney have created a new collection within their on going collaboration.
The Young at Heart collection kicks off with a six-piece offering from Vans Classics. Mickey Mouse and his leading lady, Minnie Mouse, are featured on two colour-ways of the Vans Classic Slip-On. Vans designers added a special touch to each print, styling Mickey in a red sneaker and Minnie in a pink sneaker alongside their traditional yellow footwear options.
Everyone’s favourite hothead, Donald Duck, showcases his temperament across Vans’ first shoe model, the Authentic. On a second Authentic, you’ll find kind-hearted Winnie the Pooh wearing a home made helmet and skateboard made from a tree from the Hundred Acre Wood. His skills as a skateboarder become thwarted with a busted front wheel. The collection rounds out with a timeless Mickey & Friends print featuring Donald, Mickey and their pals Goofy and Pluto.
Each character is highlighted on the four panels of the Vans Sk8-Hi Reissue while the Era includes a collage of the timeless pattern.
Children will also be able to enjoy the collection as the Mickey and Minnie Classic Slip-Ons, the Winnie the Pooh Authentic and Mickey & Friends Era are brought down to kids and toddler sizes.
The collection will be available from June 2015 in select Vans retailers.
