Were you a Disney kid? Silly question. Of course you were. Whether you were Mickey Mouse’s biggest fan, enjoyed the adventures of Winnie The Pooh or fantasised about becoming a princess, we all have a place in our hearts for the Disney fairytales that we grew up with. Now you can relive those childhood memories and take the characters you adore with you wherever you go thanks to the new Vans and Disney ‘Young At Heart’ collection.
Vans have teamed up with the cartoon heroes to create a fun-fuelled collection of footwear and apparel, featuring iconic illustrations of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto, Goofy and Winnie the Pooh. This is a collaboration for die-hard Disney fans and classic Vans collectors alike.
There’s also a story behind the new Vans and Disney ‘Young At Heart’ collection. Anaheim, was the site of the first ever Vans factory, but also the home of Disneyland California. A perfect fit, the pair have been collaborating for decades, Vans even produced black waffle sole sneakers for Disneyland staff.
Available for adults, kids, and toddlers, the new footwear collection includes all-over print versions of the Vans Era, Sk8-Hi, Classic Authentic, and Slip-On, while the apparel range includes trucker hats, backpacks, tank tops, crew socks, short-sleeve shirts, bucket hats, sweatshirts, and t-shirts.
Whether you’ll go for Minnie and Mickey on your Classic Slip-Ons, Authentics with Donald Duck emblazoned on, or hopeless but lovely Winnie the Pooh on a skateboard, there’s plenty to choose from. If you need to pretend you’re a real adult for the day, you can play down your Disney love with socks or keychains. All the patterns come with a twist, of course, Minnie and Mickey get their own sneakers and Winnie’s got a helmet.
