Teaming up with icons of illustration is nothing new for Vans and I’m really excited about their latest collaboration. On this turn, they fly the kite for everyone’s favourite underdog squad, allowing them a whole new time to shine.
ICYMI (how??), here’s a little scoop on Snoopy…
Peanuts started life as a comic strip launched in October 2nd 1950, and ran to February 13th 2000 written and illustrated by Charles M. Schulz. The friends stole the hearts of millions worldwide running in over 2,600 newspapers reaching an impressive readership of 355 million, and being animated into Emmy award winning TV specials. The format Schultz paved the way for the four-panel comic strip still used now in publications worldwide.
Not bad for a bunch of kids lead by a meek and mild protagonist who couldn’t fly a kite, kick a football or win a baseball game.
The Vans x Peanuts collection features Old Skool Classics, High Tops and Slip Ons complete with Snoopy, Woodstock and the gang referencing a variety of their sweet and iconic situations created by Schultz. Renowned for the themes and social commentary running through all their episodes, it seems like ideal timing for this collection to drop.
