Cartoon Vibrant Sneaker Packs

Sandy Liang Launches a Bright SpongeBob SquarePants Collaboration

— May 10, 2021 — Lifestyle
Sandy Liang introduces a new and playful SpongeBob SquarePants collaboration of footwear. The duo spotlights two signature silhouettes, which are iterations of the Vans Sk8-Hi 38 DX sneakers. These shoes are accompanied by a selection of apparel and accessories in the same visual language.

The shoes are the highlight of the entire capsule, as the first one is marked with a black toe box and side stripes. There are visuals of the blue floral cloud graphic that nods to the show's opening theme song. This is paired with the signature red and white checkerboard pattern by Liang. The second shoe is a nod to Sandy Cheeks, with baby blue and light green across the uppers complete with pink flowers.
