Vans to celebrate 90 years of Mickey Mouse with new collection

We give you a look at the latest Vans collaboration with Disney to celebrate Mickey Mouse’s 90th anniversary.

Disney is celebrating 90 years of one of the most iconic animated characters ever in 2018 with a full year dedicated to Mickey Mouse.

Already in 2018 companies like Target and Funko have released special Mickey Mouse inspired collections to pay homage to the legend and now Vans is next.  Vans has teamed up with Disney to release a special new collection that will honor Mickey Mouse featuring new sneakers and apparel.

For this special edition, four iconic artists — John Van Hamersveld, Mister Cartoon, Geoff McFetridge and Taka Hayashi — put their own touch on this collection as they created different versions of the Sk8-Hi silhouette. A matching short sleeve t-shirt accompanies each new shoe to create an awesome style.

Graphic designer and illustrator Van Hamersveld puts a Southern California touch on his creation for the Mickey Mouse collection using a bright and standout colorway with tones of blue and white complimented with yellow and black:

Mark Machado is a legendary Mexican-American tattoo artist with roots in Los Angeles, California where he was born. So when Machado put his touches on this collection, the awesome result didn’t surprise us one bit.

He went with the classic black and white combo using the “True Original” Mickey Mouse driving a car:

Canadian designer Geoff McFetridge decided to go with a more minimalistic style on his design, capturing Mickey Mouse with a unique pattern and using the classic black, red, yellow and white colors:

Taka Hayashi used a simple, yet creative idea of Mickey Mouse in a hot air balloon with several blue accents on his design. Pink is also spotted on the upper, rounding off the sleek design for the collection:

Prices for the new silhouettes will range from $78 to $100 and will be available beginning August 25th at Vans retailers across the country.
