Vans x Stranger Things is an apparel, footwear and accessories collaboration inspired by the fourth season of the fan-favourite Netflix show.
Celebrating creativity, self-expression and youth culture, Vans x Stranger Things has been created to celebrate “the antics and adventures of the characters of Netflix’s Stranger Things.”
The fashion collection features classic Vans footwear with Demogorgon, Hellfire Club and Sufer Boy Pizza prints and graphics.
The iconic footwear included in the Vans x Stranger Things collaboration is the Sk8-Hi, ever-popular Authentics and also classic Old Skools.
In addition to shoes, the collection also includes apparel. Why not channel the Stranger Things season four cast with a Hellfire Club Jean Jacket? Or, head back to the 80s in style with a woven camp shirt and shorts set.
Also available to purchase is a variety of graphic T-shirts featuring ‘Off the Wall / Upside Down’ slogans and Demogorgons abroad.
The Vans x Stranger Things collection isn’t just for adults, however. The collaboration also features Sk8-Hi Zip for kids and toddlers.
There are also more graphic T-shirts. This time, the kid’s apparel offerings feature classic Stranger Things branding and also T-shirts emblazoned with Jim Hopper’s face.
A big win for Stranger Things fans, the collaboration will launch exclusively for Vans Family Members on August 23.
However, if you’re not in the club, the collection will launch to the wider public on August 26, 2022.
These iconic pieces will be available at various Vans retailers and Vans.eu.
Vans x Stranger Things Footwear Breakdown
What Vans says: The “Sk8-Hi Reissue dives into the Upside Down, with hairy suede uppers, high-density Vine prints, and a reflective Demogorgon screen print and crystal outsole, “chewed through” by the creature’s sharp teeth.”
The Hellfire Club Style 36
What Vans says: “The Hellfire Club Style 36 is for club initiates only, featuring a black and red all-over crackle print canvas upper and embellished with skulls, axes, and throwing stars from Dungeons & Dragons across a distressed and doodled-on outsole.”
What Vans says: “Surfer Boy Pizza makes an appearance on the Vans Authentic in contrasting black-and-white and red-and-white checkerboard, decorated with doodles of pizza and cartoons.”
How much will the Vans x Stranger Things collaboration cost?
At the time of writing, there are no definitive details pertaining to how much the Vans x Stranger Things collection will cost.
However, earlier this summer Vans and Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon teamed up to create a similar footwear and apparel collaboration.
Right now, a Vans x Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Woven Shirt costs £59 while a pair of star-flecked Old Skool shoes cost £80.
A toddler version of the slip-on shoe is priced at £33 while a classic graphic T-shirt is available to purchase for £37.
Although we are just speculating, we can expect to see that the Vans x Stranger Things collection is priced similarly.
