Calling all Mickey Mouse fans, Vans has teamed up with Disney once again to deliver a collection celebrating the true original, Mickey Mouse to commemorate the 90th anniversary of its iconic character. The collection consists of footwear, apparel and accessories adorned with 11 designs of iconic Mickey Mouse imagery spanning from his introduction in the late 1920s to present day. Besides the collaborative collection, you can also create exclusive Vans Customs prints featuring a special Mickey Mouse inspired icon and a Minnie Mouse polka dot pattern.
The Vans and Disney Mickey Mouse Collection will be available to shop in Vans partner and retail stores and online at vans.com/Disney beginning on October 5th. Also, make sure to check minilicious.com for the entire toddler/kids footwear collection, they are so cute!!!!
Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse are tougher than nails on a special flaming Checkerboard Slip-On. Channeling the 1990’s both Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse get a punk makeover. Vans and Disney fans can showcase their own “Off The Wall” attitude in the LS BF Tee, backpack, hat and hoodie that showcase flaming sleeves and a Checkerboard hood liner.
The 1940’s introduction of the animated film Fantasia brought Mickey Mouse’s mischievous persona to light as “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”. Taking inspiration from the Sorcerer’s hat, the Sk8-Hi is transformed to include velvet quarter panels adorned with celestial moon and star embroidery, which is complimented by blue suede panels and contrast yellow stitching. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice inspired Sk8-Hi is finished with a black sole, star printed laces and a Sorcerer’s Apprentice emblem on the heel. To compliment the collection a Fantasia themed tee and Old Skool II Backpack feature a far out, tie-dye print and Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
Vans designers channel the 1980’s in a special model of the Old Skool, which combines multi-color uppers in pink, yellow and green. The design is topped off with a classically cool Mickey Mouse print and the Vans’ iconic Checkerboard pattern. Both men and women will receive nostalgic ‘80s-inspired apparel and accessories options including hoodies, jackets, backpacks and accessories.
Disney fans can channel their inner Mouseketeer in an Old Skool model that is dedicated to the Mickey Mouse Club. Utilizing suede and cotton canvas materials, the Old Skool silhouette features a red Sidestripe and club logo sewn on the tongue. The Mickey Mouse Club themed Old Skool is finished with custom chain stitched embroidery on the back of each heel.
A canvas rendition of the Old Skool showcases Mickey Mouse’s iconic gloves holding the medial side of the shoe. Disney fans will have to look closely as there is a hidden Mickey located on the tongue of each shoe. This simplified take on a classic serves as inspiration for a matching women’s apparel assortment that includes a checkerboard emblazoned tee, hoodie, hat and backpack.
Mickey Mouse’s eternal sweetheart, Minnie Mouse, will receive her own two-piece footwear and apparel assortment that channels her classic polka dotted dress. Using her giant oversized bow and satin materialization, the Authentic Gore and Slide-On Sandal get dressed up with Minnie Mouse detailing and is finished with a delicate scalloped edge. Matching crewneck, backpack and sock options are also available in the selection.
Mickey Mouse fans can channel the true original himself in the Mickey Mouse-inspired Authentic. Vans’ original deck shoe has been updated with Mickey Mouse’s trademark colors including a yellow sole complimented by black and red uppers and applique yellow buttons along the heels.
