Cartoon Character Shoe Collaborations

Vans' SpongeBob SquarePants Collection Has Novel Colorways

— May 27, 2021 — Marketing
Vans' SpongeBob SquarePants Collection, designed by Sandy Liang, features custom colorways that mirror the cartoon show's esthetic. The collection consists of high-top sneakers, lace-up shoes, and slip-on shoes. The collection also includes a host of themed apparel and accessories such as a hoodie, a pair of track pants, shirts, and a bucket hat.

The cartoon graphic detailing is the defining draw of the SpongeBob SquarePants Collection. The graphics showcase beloved characters such as SpongeBob SquarePants and his pet snail Gary, Sandy Cheeks, Plankton, and Patrick Star–all in the show's characteristically optimistic visual style. The bright colors and tropical patterns appeal to not only fans and collectors, but any youth looking to brighten up their wardrobe. Vans' SpongeBob SquarePants Collection launches online and in-store on June 4th.
