Vans x Star Wars Collection

Written by: Kimberley Sandford | October 22, 2014.

The Vans page on Mainline Menswear has been invaded by an out-of-this-world collection of Star Wars artwork. The new Vans x Star Wars Collection presents four new original styles of Vans footwear featuring prints based on the classic dark side characters and scenes from the iconic series.

The unique capsule is divided into two unique parts and installed into both the Vans Classics and Vault by Vans models. The Vans Classics have different designs featuring everything from Stormtroopers to the Galactic Empire, and the Vault by Vans includes an all-white Yoda colour-way and an all-black Darth Vader design. Almost all of the Vans are included in an assortment of colours from the Authentic, Sk8-Hi, Era and Half Cab styles.

Mainline Menswear has four different styles of the Vans x Star Wars Collection with a pair of the Sk8-Hi in black featuring a skull-in-crossbones inspired print that incorporates Darth Vader, a Classic Slip On pair of shoes also in black featuring a custom Darth Vader graphic, a pair of Era Canvas Shoes with a custom graphic printed on the uppers of Stormtroopers embedded in camo, and finally a pair of Authentic Canvas Trainers which feature a colourful custom designed pattern of the planet Hoth.

This is the Californian brand’s second release in the collaboration, following on from their well-received summer pack. This time they have updated it for winter with darker colours- meaning instead of friendly Jedi’s adorning the uppers, this time it is Darth Vader and his evil accomplices from the dark side whose images feature. Vans are no strangers to collaborations and currently have a number of successful capsule collections running, including a Beatles tribute line.

If you are a Vans wearer then the Star Wars collection takes the classic Vans design to a galaxy far, far away!
