Vans, NASA launch ‘Space Age’ footwear collection

American skateboarding shoes brand Vans has teamed up with the United States federal Agency NASA for the launch of a new ‘space age’ collection.

The collection will be centered around Vans silhouettes Old Skool, Sk8-Hi MTE and Slip-On and will showcase the NASA logo at the lateral, over the wording “John F. Kennedy Space Center,” according to Fashion United.

Vans most recently collaborated with Disney in celebration of the 90th birthday of the iconic Mickey Mouse character. NASA also launched a capsule clothing collection with Heron Preston as well as a sneaker with Mercer Amsterdam.

In addition, Vans has also incorporated space travel-related wording such as ‘shuttle’ and ‘mission’ embroidered onto tabs at the tongue of the trainer, as well as removable US flag patches at the back.

The upcoming collaborative sneaker collection between Vans and NASA will retail via Footlocker on November 2.
