The Simpsons x Vans is HERE! D'OH!
It’s been over 30 years, and The Simpsons are still the reigning champs of late-night cartoon family fun. Now, Vans releases their limited-edition The Simpsons collection, paying tribute to Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie - with some notable appearances with other faves like Snowball II, Santa’s Little Helper, Itchy & Scratchy, and more!
The Simpsons has held it’s own as a pop-culture phenomenon, beloved by generations for their brilliant writing and iconic visuals. There have been many different merchandise releases over the years, but this is definitely the coolest ever.
Check out these Lisa for Prez Sk8-His; our favourite smartypants gets on her soap-box to run for President of Springfield Elementary School Council. They’re the classic Sk8-Hi silhouette with purple suede and canvas upper, Simpsons-yellow laces, and a Lisa Simpson for President patch on the side. Now you can help spread the word and rep the most deserving candidate, Lisa!
If you’re an OG fan, you’ll recognize Matt Groening’s original artwork from 1987 on these Sk8-his! Before hitting your screens with their own show, The Simpsons made their debut in a series of shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show. After a re-draw, they premiered as an independent series in 1989. On the right shoe, you’ll notice the prototype original artwork of our fave family, and on the left, the classic family we know and love.
Next, we’ve got a Moe’s Tavern inspired pair of Old Skools that features the groovy red and green checkered window pattern of Springfield’s stickiest dive-bar. Moe will owe you quite a few Duffs for all the free promo you’re giving him!
Can’t decide who’s your favourite character from The Simpsons? No need to choose with these Classic Slip-ons, they include almost everyone! These babies include a ComfyCush insole, which is honestly like walking on a cloud. There are even little Simpsons-style clouds printed on the inside!
Next, your favourite chaotic duo, Itchy & Scratchy take centre stage on this pair of Eras. An insanely-violent parody of other cat-and-dog cartoons, it’s a favourite of Bart and Lisa’s. This pair features an all-over Itchy & Scratchy print, sturdy canvas uppers, metal eyelets, padded collars, and the signature rubber waffle outsole.
We saved the best + most mischievous for last. Springfield’s most mysterious vandal, El Barto, strikes again with a pair of tagged Sk8-lows. Suede toe-caps, heel cups, and eyelets and vulcanized rubber foxing make these pair perfect for a skate-sash or tagging the streets of Springfield.
