Vans commemorates NASA with a time honored collection of footwear and apparel that pays homage to six decades of space exploration and discovery. The Vans Space Voyager Collection lands in Vans retail stores and online on November 2. All exclusive kids styles will also be available on thetrybe.com.au
Inspired by the original space suits, the Space Voyager footwear collection showcases unique design details including exposed foam and interchangeable patch insignia. This launches a cosmic tribute on Vans timeless silhouettes including the Sk8-Hi and Old Skool, in addition to classic apparel and accessories pieces. The collection includes eight footwear iterations ranging from adult to toddler sizing across the Sk8-Hi MTE, Old Skool and Classic Slip-On models.
Two Sk8-Hi 46 MTE DX styles feature full-grain leather uppers, exposed foam and the NASA Meatball Insignia on the quarter panels and are finished with a black lacing system. For the Old Skool styles, Vans introduces the iconic orange colorway with a black NASA worm logotype and lacing details, alongside a clean all-white version which showcases an exposed foam collar and rigid marshmallow outsole. The youth styles incorporate a Slip-On featuring a black galaxy print upper with a glitter gum outsole, as well as a white Sk8-Hi MTE outfitted with a black space boot inspired outsole. The Sk8-Hi MTE styles feature Vans MTE 360™ technology that enhances heat retention around the foot and improves moisture management within each shoe, along with a durable lugged outsole for increased traction.
For a well-rounded offering, Vans introduces three jackets as part of the capsule including the Vans Space Anorak in black and orange and the Vans Space Torrey Padded MTE jacket, in two colorways that include Apollo 11 graphic detailing to honor man’s first journey on the moon. Additionally, the collection features the Vans Space Pullover hoodie in black and the Vans Space Man long-sleeved tee in white. For youth options, Vans includes three t-shirt styles, matching back to the adult range. Finally, Vans celebrates NASA through incorporating iconic colorways and graphic details on classic accessories styles including the Grind Skate Duffel in space orange and the Snag Plus Backpack to complete the commemorative product offering.
