Today we get an official look at the new Fall season Vans x Peanuts Collection. The new collab celebrates uses original illustrations by Charles M. Schulz and pays homage to the iconic characters and artwork from the original Peanuts holiday television specials.
The Vans Sk8-Hi Reissue and Old Skool uses the entire silhouette as a canvas. Original designs of Charlie Brown and Snoopy take over the monochromatic silhouettes and are outfitted with leather Sidestripes. The Authentic is decorated with holiday themed comic strip scenes. Other sneakers from the collection include the Authentic or Old Skool model that show the whole Peanuts Gang during the memorable dance party scene from the animated television special, ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’.
In honor of the 25th anniversary of the Half Cab, Vans designers have included Snoopy and his family members across the canvas panels of the Half Cab. Snoopy’s brother, Spike is spotted on the Half Cab’s tongue label with a Checkerboard printed hat and Schulz signature embossed into the suede toe box. The Vans Slip-On has been reimagined this season to include the many playful expressions of Snoopy that can be found within print. The Sk8-Hi Reissue gets a premium upgrade with leather materialization and has been embossed on the quarter-panels to include the subtle presence of Snoopy and a hidden Woodstock can be seen on the tongue label. A very special Classic Slip-On was created to celebrate the everlasting friendship between Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Woodstock and features plush patches on the vamp of each Slip-On and is finished with ‘Best Friends’ embossed into the front toe bumper of each shoe.
In addition to the sneaker, the collection will also include signature Vans x Peanuts apparel and accessories with a range of prints that match the footwear assortment. This includes monochromatic Charlie Brown and Snoopy illustrations and Snoopy’s family for men. Women will have a playfully pink collection of the Peanuts dance party apparel and a tonal collection dedicated to Snoopy. Even the littlest Vans and Peanuts fans will receive their very own assortment of footwear that will be available in kids and toddler sizing including the comic strip and dance party Authentic. Just in time for Halloween, the Sk8-Hi Zip includes glow-in-the-dark Snoopy and Woodstock dressed up as mummies while the Old Skool V features easy hook-and-loop straps and uses the Snoopy Checkerboard print. Tiny tykes get their very own Classic Slip-On that features Snoopy with a plush tail detail at the heel.
