CoppaFeel! x Vans' Sneaker Collab Is Dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The range features hand-drawn illustrations depicting diversity.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Vans has teamed up with CoppaFeel! on a limited-edition footwear collection. The forthcoming lineup includes an Sk8-Hi trainer, two low-top Slip-On designs, an Era model and also a slide silhouette.

The range isn’t just for show, it was designed to “educate youth on checking their breasts and early detection.” It also centers “the beauty and strength of those impacted or touched by breast cancer,” according to an official press release. Each design comes with diverse breast illustrations which speak to the numerous appearances of breasts and nipples depicted in different shade ranges. CoppaFeel! is a UK-based breast cancer awareness charity that promotes early detection and encourages young people to know and understand their bodies. $200,000 USD of the proceeds will benefit the organization.

Headlining the collection is the Vans Sk8-Hi which features the hand-drawn illustrations paired with a black and white design. Up next is the checkerboard Slip-On which arrives in a light cream tone with different shades of brown and white throughout. The third iteration is also a Slip-On in black with the phrase “YOU GOT THIS” on the top of the shoe. The last sneaker is an Era which also comes in a cream colorway with a literal blueprint design on the upper. Lastly, the slide comes in white and features an assortment of colors on the strap.

In an official statement, Kris Hallenga, founder of CoppaFeel!, discusses the company’s partnership with Vans:

“For our charity, this collaboration with Vans is a dream come true. We are thrilled for the opportunity to spread our message across Vans’ audience, as this partnership will allow us to tell more people why checking their boobs is so important, and in return, save lives. CoppaFeel! exists to stamp out the late detection of breast cancer by educating everyone – girls, boys and non-binary pals about their boobs and encourage them to get anything abnormal checked out.”

Head to Van’s web store on October 1 to purchase the Vans Breast Cancer Awareness collection. Take a look at the range in the gallery above.
