While Mickey has been used as fashion inspiration numerous times, his girlfriend is finally getting the spotlight with the VANS x Disney 'Minnie Couture' sneakers.

The VANS x Disney 'Minnie Couture' kicks take a subtle, more mature approach to their pop culture reference, with no blatant images of the adorable female mouse used at all. Instead, the sneakers hint to her personal style with brown fur that takes up the majority of the upper and pink polka dot laces, which is a nod to the color on the cartoon character's bow.

The VANS x Disney 'Minnie Couture' will be available on October 7th in Japan only. Stats for Fuzzy Cartoon Kicks Trending: Older & Mild
