Vault by Vans and Disney have partnered again, this time to celebrate Mickey Mouse’s 90th Anniversary. The duo tapped four different artists — John Van Hamersveld, Mister Cartoon, Geoff McFetridge and Taka Hayashi — to create a capsule collection featuring Vans’ sneakers along with coordinated tees that pay homage to the renowned mouse.
The Vans Sk8-Hi LX serves as the key silhouette for the various shoe renditions, which include a blue, grey, white and even denim-based style.
Machado, a Mexican-American artist also known as Mister Cartoon, brings the classic black, white and grey colorway to the assortment. The tattoo artist — who is known for his detailed hand-rendered style of fine line tattooing using diluted black ink to create shadows and depth — developed a vintage illustration featuring Mickey in a retro car.
Hayashi’s iteration employed a denim fabrication throughout the shoe, which features patches and embroidery along the upper. Mickey is depicted as a hot air balloon in his inventive take on the mouse.
Harmersveld brings a vibrant palette to the mix. His colorful design features oversize Mickey graphics in a sky blue, red and yellow combination with a solid, royal blue tongue.
Finally, Canadian animator McFetridge adds an all-over print to the lineup. Using a white canvas base, the artist overlaid a repeat Mickey pattern that highlights the cartoon’s iconic colors — black, red and yellow.
The Disney x Vans collaboration launches on August 25 globally at select Vault by Vans accounts and retails for $78 to $100.
