Vans Celebrates 'Where's Waldo' Franchise With Footwear and Apparel Collaboration
A playful collection dedicated to fans of all ages.
Having launched pastel pink sneakers with COMME des GARÇONS Girl last month, Vans has now joined forces with the Where’s Waldo franchise to rework its key silhouettes. The kicks arrive alongside a co-branded apparel capsule.
The signature beach scene from Waldo’s first book is splashed onto the Slip-On to complete a colorful design. Meanwhile, the character’s red-and-white stripes are seen on the Old Skool, which is highlighted with Where’s Waldo branding in multiple languages on the midsole. The Era is emblazoned with a postage stamp print across the upper, and the Sk8-Hi rounds out the footwear collection with a yellow and black checkerboard pattern inspired by Waldo’s nemesis, Odlaw.
As for apparel, the same theme is continued on a series of tees – a white iteration sees a co-branded emblem at the chest. A striped design is adorned with the franchise’s key characters throughout, while a gray hoodie and two caps complete the range.
See the full collaborative collection down below. Priced from $26 USD to $85 USD, Where’s Waldo x Vans’ sneakers and apparel pieces are available now via the skate brand’s retail stores and online.
