Vans x ASPCA, sneaker solidarity

We have grown accustomed to the support the american brand founded by Paul Van Doren gives to the world of skate, BMX, etc. By sponsoring young promises Vans intends to convey their “young” and engaged essence, but with the Vans x ASPCA edition they surprise us again…

Vans has decided to collaborate with an american association for animal protection called ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) to release a sneaker and accessories collection with a very “animal” theme. A small amount of the profits Vans obtains from selling articles from this special edition will be donated to the ASPCA for their animal care and cruelty prevention services.

The existence of this Vans x ASPCA collaboration shouldn’t go unnoticed, and that’s why the designs they have released for this special edition feature an eye-catching print: the faces of different animals cover sneakers, snapbacks and backpacks, resulting in really unique products.

We can see an example of this curious edition in these Vans U Authentic ASPCA. This time, the sneaker maintains the original shape and essence of the Vans U Authentic, but with a twist: they have a cat face print all over the sneaker that will delight both animal lovers and exclusive shoe lovers.

On the other hand we have the Vans U Sk8 Hi Slim ASPCA. They have the classic boot shape of the Vans Sk8 but with slight alterations, such as the laces, which are rounded instead of flat like they usually are for this model, or the tag on the tongue, which comes in orange, the corporative colour of the association. In this case, contrary to the Era model on the same collection, the print on the Sk8 is of dog faces, creating a very unconventional look.

At foot District we are totally in favour of this kind of initiatives, and are excited to be able to offer the Vans x ASPCA sneakers, from which part of the profit goes to these actions.
