Following a collaboration earlier this year, Vans unveils another new collection with the Peanuts gang for Fall 2017.
Using original illustrations by Charles M. Schulz, the collection pays homage to the iconic characters and artwork from the original Peanuts holiday television specials, with imagery of Charlie Brown, Snoopy and others.
Schulz’s illustrations are seen across Vans’ iconic silhouettes, including the Sk8-Hi Reissue and Old Skool, with original designs of Charlie Brown and Snoopy taking over the monochromatic shoes outfitted with leather sidestripes. Taking it back to the comic strip days is an Authentic, which is decorated with holiday themed comic strip scenes. Fans also get an Authentic or Old Skool that depicts 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 add Snoopy to the the canvas panels of the Half Cab. His family is also included, with his brother, Spike, on the Half Cab’s tongue label with a Checkerboard printed hat and Schulz signature embossed into the suede toe box. The Checkerboard Slip-On has also been reimagined with a number of playful expressions of Snoopy seen within the print. The Sk8-Hi Reissue sportsg 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. Lastly, the Classic Slip-On celebrates the everlasting friendship between Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Woodstock, with patches on the vamp of each Slip-On and is finished with “Best Friends” embossed into the front toe bumper of each shoe.
There’s even a range of footwear for toddlers.
Aside from footwear, the apparel portion features a number of apparel and accessories pieces that match the footwear assortment. For women, there’s a pink collection of the Peanuts dance party apparel and a tonal collection dedicated to Snoopy.
