Vans comes together with Disney to deliver a collection celebrating the true original, Mickey Mouse. To commemorate the 90th anniversary of Disney’s beloved character, Vans designers bring decades of iconic Mickey Mouse imagery to an extended offering of footwear, apparel and accessories available October 5. The collection is founded on 11 designs that capture Mickey Mouse’s spirit and evolution spanning from his introduction in the late 1920’s to present day.
To commemorate Mickey Mouse’s film debut in 1928, the Sk8-Hi has been remastered to showcase iconic scenes from the black and white silent film, Plane Crazy. Each quarter panel features a film scene that is captured under a patent material and is finished with a 3-D emblem on the heels.
The 1940’s introduction of the animated film Fantasia brought Mickey Mouse’s mischievous persona to light as “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”. Taking inspiration from the Sorcerer’s hat, the Sk8-Hi is transformed to include velvet quarter panels adorned with celestial moon and star embroidery, which is complimented by blue suede panels and contrast yellow stitching. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice inspired Sk8-Hi is finished with a black sole, star printed laces and a Sorcerer’s Apprentice emblem on the heel. To compliment the collection a Fantasiathemed tee and Old Skool II Backpack feature a far out, tie-dye print and Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
