In November 1995, a small triumph of genius called Toy Story was released by Pixar Studios that changed the way that animated films were made and narrated forever. The story ignited the imagination of people of all ages all over the world. Over two decades later, Vans revisits the warmth, nostalgia and magic of Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Bo Peep, Rex, Hamm and the rest of the tale’s wonderful characters with its classic Toy Story collection. Collaborating with Disney and Pixar, the skate culture brand brings alive the tale of an unlikely friendship and the joy of childhood through a collection of themed footwear for adults and kids. Here are our picks from the Vans X Toy Story Collection:
Watch out, the Sheriff’s in town. This Vans Old Skool Shoe reinterprets rootin’ tootin’ Woody in the classic Old Skool silhouette. The denim and cowskin printed panels on the upper mimic Woody’s jeans and vest, while his plaid shirt print is represented in the shoe’s inner lining. All of this comes along with the same canvas upper and signature rubber waffle outsole of an Old Skool Shoe.
Star Command’s bravest space ranger, Buzz Lightyear gets reinterpreted in a classic Old Skool style in this shoe. Featuring a white and green upper that makes up Buzz Lightyear’s tonal spacesuit, it’s the tiny details like the hand-drawn screws and colourful eyelets that bring this shoe to life. The upper sits upon a purple signature rubber waffle outsole that adds to the comfort and style of an Old Skool Shoe.
The cute aliens from Pizza Planet make an appearance on this Vans Kids’ Authentic Shoe, with their glow-in-the-dark eyes featuring prominently. This edition combines elastic laces with the iconic low top silhouette along with a hook-and-loop closure. Providing an easy on-and-off fit with a heel tab design, these shoes also include a sturdy canvas upper along with a signature rubber waffle outsole.
Inspired by Andy’s toys, this Vans Kids’ Slip On Shoe features Slinky, Hamm, Bo Peep, Rex and more iconic Toy Story characters on a textile upper. Its classic slip-on style makes it easy to put on and take off, while elastic side accents create a perfect fit.
In true Toy Story fashion, each shoe has Andy’s signature scribbled on the rubber waffle outsole, giving it that touch of cinematic perfection. So slip on some nostalgia, re live the magic of the original Toy Story movie and prepare to go to infinity and beyond.
