Vans Goes 80s Ugly With Bowie Collection

The 80s fashion trends continue with the soon to be released Vans Bowie collection. More Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane than the Thin White Duke, the four pairs of collaborative kicks are colorful, quirky and well, downright ugly. But that is undoubtedly part of their appeal.

Vans Bowie Collection

The limited edition collection includes four pair of Vans, each designed in one of their four most popular silhouettes; the Slip-On 47 V DX, Old Skool, Era, and Sk8-Hi.

The four pair are distinctly embellished with colors, details and text inspired by each of the following Bowie albums: Hunky Dory, Aladdin Sane, Space Oddity, and Diamond Dogs.

The collection will drop on April 9th here in the US.
