Vans Dives Deep into David Bowie’s Discography for Latest Collection

After their renowned collaborations with the likes of Metallica, Pearl Jam, Bad Brains and Led Zeppelin, Vans has officially announced that they have a David Bowie capsule on the way. The late artist has continued to have a profound effect in both music and fashion and will continue to do so with Vans’ latest collection.

Incorporating the Slip-On 47 V DX, Era, Old Skool and Sk8-Hi, the collaboration draws inspiration from four Bowie albums, including Space Oddity, Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane.

First reissued with the help of fashion designer, Jerry Lorenzo, the Slip-On 47 V DX reworks the throwback offering with inspiration from Bowie’s Hunky Dory album, featuring the album’s name tonally printed onto the midsole, a faux fur checkerboard pattern, yellow suede paneling and David Bowie stamped across the forefoot strap.

The Space Oddity iteration uses the Era as its canvas, incorporating the polka-dot print seen on the album’s cover with the phrase, “SPACE” written on the medial angle of the midsole.
