The second collaborative collection between Vans and Disney sees the use of characters from iconic Disney movies as opposed to the Disney mascots — i.e. Mickey Mouse and his squad — of the first collection. The sequel to what we hope is a long term project between the two brands (we won’t stop asking for more until a Lion King print is in the works) focuses on three movies; Alice in Wonderland, 101 Dalmatians, and The Jungle Book. Available in either Vans’ Classic Slip-On or the Sk8-Hi Reissue silhouette, the shoes’ colourways are unique to the respective movies they pay homage to; there are two designs for the 101 Dalmatian pair, red — we can only assume it was inspired by Cruella de Vil — and a simple one in black and white. Then, The Jungle Book version blends five of the movie’s iconic characters onto one canvas whereas Alice in Wonderland takes a louder approach with its psychedelic and vibrantly coloured designs, making it the most noticeable one off this collection in our opinion. All of which are of a unisex design and come in sizes suitable for toddlers, teenagers, and adults! Now for that Lion King design… we’d suggest having Scar’s “I’m surrounded by idiots” quote printed on the outsole because it’s funny and people will know what we’re actually thinking. Win-win!
