Vans celebrates NASA’s work with a time-honored shoe and clothing collection as a tribute to six decades of space exploration and discovery.
Inspired by original space suits, the Space Voyager shoe collection shows unique design details, including visible foam and interchangeable patch insignia. The timeless Vans models, including the Sk8-Hi and Old Skool but also classic clothing and accessories, have been translated into a unique space collection.
The collection includes eight shoe styles – from adult to toddler sizes – ranging from Sk8-Hi MTE, Old Skool to Classic Slip-On’s. Two Sk8-Hi 46 MTE DX styles have a full grain leather upper, visible foam and the NASA Meatball insignia on the sides, finished with black laces. For the Old Skool models, Vans introduces the iconic orange color scheme with a black NASA worm logo, details in the laces, and a basic all-white version with foam collar and a marshmallow outsole. The more youthful styles come like a slip-on with an upper of a black galaxy print with a shimmering gum sole and a white Sk8-Hi MTE equipped with an outsole inspired by a black space shoe. The Sk8-Hi MTE styles are equipped with Vans MTE 360 technology that holds heat around the foot and improves moisture management within each shoe, including a durable outsole for increased traction.
To complete the collection, Vans also introduces three jackets as part of the capsule collection. Including the Vans Space Anorak in black and orange and the Vans Space Torrey Padded MTE jacket, in two color spaces with graphic Apollo 11 details in honor of the first journey from humans to the moon. In addition, the collection features the Vans Space Pullover hoodie in black and the Vans Space Man shirt with long sleeves in white. For the youth, the Vans collection consists of three t-shirt styles that correspond with the assortment for adults.
As the cherry on the cake, Vans celebrates NASA by integrating iconic color schemes and graphic details into classic accessories, including the Grind Skate Duffel in space orange and the Snag Plus backpack.
The Vans Space Voyager Collection will be available in Vans stores and online from tomorrow. For now here a quick preview of the collection.
