There is something magical about nostalgia for your childhood, and it becomes even more exciting when combined with your favorite sneakers. That's precisely what Sesame Street and Vans are bringing to the table, as they evoke warm memories for adults and create a playful setting for the kids.
The adult assortment for the footwear collection impressively embodies the Sesame Street ethos. The Vans Authentic appears in Sesame Street Yellow, showcasing vintage Vans design elements alongside illustrations of the neighborhood friends. The Old Skool model in Sesame Street Multi blends a rainbow-striped mix of characters including Gabrielle and Tamir, embodying the themes of friendship and acceptance. The apparel range also extends to a cozy fleece sweatshirt set with Sesame Street visuals and the message "We All Belong." The collection also features Mini Backpacks decked out with checkerboard patterns interwoven with characters.
For younger fans, the collection includes kids sizing for the Sk8-Hi Zip in Sesame Street Multi, Sesame Street Tee in True Blue, Sesame Street Knot Tee in White, and a matching Authentic in Sesame Street Yellow. The Skate selection brings forth The Lizzie in Marshmallow, adorned with character embroidery and bright lime furry shoes laces. The Little Lizzie in Marshmallow, the kids’ counterpart to the adult Skate style, completes the offering.
If none of these options speak to you, Vans’ Custom platform will allow you to design your very own Sesame Street x Vans footwear with three prints available.
The Sesame Streets x Vans Collection will release June 9 through Vans and select retailers online and in-store. The retail price ranges depending on the silhouette.
