Despite the global lockdown and the preventive quarantine measures that the whole world has adapted to, Vans is still rolling up in stores with new kicks and apparel that the world has yet to see in its vast roster of classic shoe designs and brand-based patterns. The American skateboarding shoe and apparel company is proud to announce that its latest design series is reminiscent to most people in this day and age: the Simpsons!
This multitude of footwear, hats, sweaters, raglans and t-shirts, socks, and bags are based on everything Simpsons-related. The products display the various characters and inside jokes from the show. Famous and iconic personas such as Bart and Lisa Simpson and Krusty the Clown are only three of the many characters imprinted on this series of Vans apparel. The primary color accent seen throughout the TV show, the trademark metallic yellow, is a distinguishing hue evident in this Vans collection. With all that said, here are the different sneakers that the shoe company has provided for both sneakerheads and fans of the long-running American cartoon!
THE SIMPSONS X VANS SK8-HI
For the Simpsons x Vans series, this shoe model has two variations: a light purple one based on everything Lisa Simpson and a black-and-white one (with inner light blue and white checkered patterns) that features both the original Simpson family and an alternate version of them. Both sneakers utilize shoelaces in the iconic metallic yellow color and tongues that boast light blue tags.
THE SIMPSONS X VANS SK8-LOW
This SK8-LOW is a red/black accented pair of kicks, grounding itself on the concept of “El Barto” (which translates to “the Barto”). As made evident with the name slabbed on the outer sides of the shoes, it pays tribute to Bart Simpson, the brother of Lisa Simpson and the son of Homer and Marge Simpson. Just like the SK8-HI, it uses metallic yellow shoelaces and light blue tags based on the show attached to the tongue. The inner quarter of the sneakers shows off the iconic sky’s design outside the Simpson’s household.
THE SIMPSONS X VANS CHUKKA PRO
Bart Simpson is the name of the game again with these semi high-topped kicks! What’s distinct about these blue suede sneakers is the keychain attached to each individual shoe’s topmost eyelet. Unlike the ones previously mentioned, this pair utilizes blue shoelaces to stay in theme with the blue shoes.
THE SIMPSONS X VANS OLD SKOOL
For this Vans collection, the Old Skool has two adaptations: a suede, teal pair that displays a green and orange checkered pattern on its outside geared towards men and white ones that have an apple green-colored outer quarter with a light pink side stripe aimed for women. Both shoes exhibit various characters including Homer, Marge, Moe Szyslak, Barney Gumble, and Carl Carlson.
THE SIMPSONS X VANS ERA
As with most of the apparel in this collection, these sneakers display Itchy and Scratchy fighting in various ways. Its tongue shows off a duo-chromatic Krusty the Clown and its shoelaces are the standard metallic yellow ones that are sure to keep the kicks in theme with the whole series.
THE SIMPSONS X VANS COMFYCUSH SLIP-ON
This pair of shoes has got to be the most reminiscent of the sitcom show, exhibiting many TV series characters. Many illustrious personas such as the whole Simpson family, Ned Flanders, Milhouse Van Houten, Nelson Muntz, Moe Szyslak, Barney Gumble, the infamous Krusty the Clown, and Principal Skinner are only a few of seen on the shoe front.
THE SIMPSONS X VANS SLIP-ON PRO
Vans flaunts colors galore with the Slip-on Pro of this collection, boasting the iconic metallic yellow (yet again), blue, and red colors throughout the whole shoe. Just like the SK8-LOW, the inner quarter’s design is the well-known sky outside the Simpson’s house.
The Simpsons x Vans Slide-On
This pair of The Simpsons x Vans Slide-On resembles Homer’s favorite snack. These ultra-comfortable Vans sandals look just like a large doughnut with pink frosting and sprinkles.
