Vans x Peanuts

Words and photographs provided by Marrice Hill

For the second time this year vans has collaborated with the legendary Schulz to bring forth a peanuts themed collection for kids and adults. The two have a partnership dating back to the 80’s but the most recent release came at the beginning of June where they released multiple styles of authentics, old skools, sk8-hi’s and slip ons along with apparel. What really sets vans apart from the rest are their collaborations, so much thought and detail is put into the shoe you almost want to ask yourself if you even want to wear them. Vans doesn’t really put a lot into marketing so if you aren’t paying much attention, a release will blow right past you. I was lucky enough to get a pair from the June 1st release as well as the most recent (October 8th) with both being the only pair in my size. Here is a gallery of the Charlie Brown & Snoopy old skools.
