The Simpsons is one of televisions most enduring and best loved programmes and is subject to a lot of collaboration projects. One of our favourites to date here at Coolector HQ sees them join forces with footwear and apparel brand, Vans, to create an extensive new selection of sneakers, tees and shirts that will be right up the street of any Simpsons or streetwear aficionados.
Vans are synonymous with high quality footwear and that really shines through with this new collection in conjunction with The Simpsons. If you like your sneakers visually vibrant, you’ll not go too far wrong with these slip ons, boots and sneakers because they’re eye-catching to say the least and celebrate some of the cartoon’s most iconic characters, including our own favourite, Mr. Plow.
The Simpsons, which is famous for being the longest running scripted series in television history, is a part of American culture such is its on-running popularity for over two decades. Though its heyday was likely the 1990s for most people, the writing, character development, and plot-lines put it in a class that very few have belonged to, spanning decades of relevance and replay-ability and becoming the bench mark for animated shows to aspire to.
This awesome looking Vans x The Simpsons Collection is a fitting tribute to the programme’s long lived popularity and will be a great addition to any sneakerhead’s line up. Over a decade ago, The Simpsons was at the centre of a Vans collaboration with renowned artist Kaws and now the family of five is commemorated again by Vans, with Homer, Marge Bart, Lisa, and Maggie (and its extended family) starring front and centre on an array of footwear and apparel that all Simpsons fans will definitely appreciate.
A few of the standout picks in this collection include a Sk8-Hi that boasts a family portrait – one done in Matt Groening’s contemporary illustrations and another earlier style that was revealed in a Simpsons short. A few of the others to catch the eye are the awesome looking Mr. Plow high tops and the El Barto, Bart Simpson’s vandalising alter ego, which can be seen on a pair Skate Pro.
Selling Out Fast
Needless to say, The Simpsons has a pretty vast fan base and Vans are mighty popular in their own right so this collection of footwear and apparel is definitely going to sell out fast and is already flying off the shelves. For fans of Homer, Bart et al these great looking sneakers and top class apparel are a must buy and we’ll definitely be looking to get our hands on some here at Coolector HQ.
Visually vibrant, great value for money and plenty of options to choose from, what’s not to like about this Vans X The Simpsons Collection? Looking to give your footwear a boost this summer and autumn, look no further.
