Toy Story made its debut in 1995 mesmerizing generations of children and families everywhere with the tale of a group of toys who came to life when humans weren’t present. Vans revisits the nostalgic dynamic between the film’s leading characters, Sheriff Woody and Buzz Lightyear, along with their group of friends for an exclusive collection of footwear, apparel and accessories. Woody is the source of inspiration for a trio of footwear options. The Sk8-Hi Reissue PT transforms elements of Woody’s iconic cowboy boots into hi-top form using full grain leather with custom cactus embroidery. The Old Skool is revamped to include denim and cow skin printed side panels and is finished with a brown leather Sidestripe. Rootin’ tootin’ Woody art can also be found on the all-over printed denim Authentic with a brown foxing stripe and waxed laces.
Fans can feel like Star Command’s leading space ranger, Buzz Lightyear, in the Sk8-Hi Reissue! Wear this pair with the lights out and stars and elements will glow in the dark! Disney•Pixar fans can have their very own Buzz Lightyear look with the Old Skool, featuring white and green leather uppers that make up Buzz Lightyear’s tonal space suit. Look closely and you will see hand-drawn screws and colorful eyelets atop a tonal purple outsole.
Relive the iconic scene where Buzz and Woody encounter the claw amongst the aliens in an all-over printed Era with a special glow-in-the-dark surprise. Look closely and you will discover the duo hidden among the aliens! A unique element can be found on the sole of each Woody and Buzz style to reveal Andy’s signature from the original Toy Story movie.
The collection wouldn’t be complete without Hamm, Slinky Dog, Rex and Bo Peep who inspired their very own Old Skool design. Women around the world can channel Bo Peep in a special polka-dotted Sk8-Hi Slim with a lace adorned Sidestripe while Woody and Bo Peep are featured together on a pink Authentic. Sid’s mutant toys inspired their very own Vans Classic Slip-On featuring Roller Bob, Legs, Rockmobile and Baby Face atop a skull printed vamp and black outsole inspired by Sid.
