If you ever wanted to join the Mickey Mouse club as a kid, Vans’ latest drop will deliver the perfect hit of nostalgia. Although Disney’s iconic mouse may look like he never ages, it turns out he’s actually a whopping 90 years old this year and a new Vans collab celebrates some of our favourite Mickey moments.
From a truly magical pair of Fantasia-inspired kicks to a Minnie-approved pair of polka-dot bow slip ons, we’re totally obsessed with the Vans Disney collection. Disneyheads, count this a valuable PSA as the whole line drops tomorrow on October 5 in stores and online. (We’re pretty sure these are going to disappear snappish.)
The line spans shoes, bags, shirts and even hats, all infused with Vans’ skateboarder chic aesthetic and a generous helping of Disney magic. There’s eleven cool designs inspired by the Mouse’s signature gloves and colours, as well as a number of Mickey’s biggest flicks.
It’s the details that make all the difference here: look closer and you’ll be able to spot white scalloped edging, a fun homage to Minnie Mouse’s flirty dress and the moon and stars pattern from Mickey’s sorcerer’s hat hidden on the soles of a pair of navy trainers. And my personal favourite has to be the super retro Mickey Mouse Club high tops, which look like 90s hip hop gloriously chewed them up and spat them back out again.
