Vans and Pixar have partnered to offer consumers an imaginative and nostalgic new collection that fuses vibrant design with classic silhouettes.
The adorable collection features iconic images from Toy Story and ranges from bold sneakers to more subtle high-tops. One of the shoes takes on the brand's classic low-top silhouette and features a green and purple colorway that's reminiscent of Buzz Lightyear's suit. Another pair features a simple brown leather design that's been embossed with a stitched cactus. All of the shoes feature the name "Andy" scribbled on the bottom.
This move serves as another example of Vans introducing nostalgia-inducing collections, as in the past, the shoe brand has released Nintendo and Star Wars collections.
