Vans and Marvel have joined forces to create a brand new collaboration due to launch soon.

The range will celebrate the iconic “off the wall” super heroes of the Marvel universe.

Vans which started in a small California workshop by two brothers in 1966 are now dominating the footwear scene. They have become a pillar of youth culture that is desirable but most importantly –authentic.

Marvel’s recent releases have been causing more hype than ever before. Black Panther and ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ slayed at the box office and broke multiple records.

Black Panther earned more than $1 Billion worldwide in 26 days and Avengers: Infinity War achieved $1 Billion in just 11 days.

Both brands are no strangers to the street-wear scene. The first time these two brands crossed pasts was in 2013. The collection of classic Vans silhouettes each featured iconic superheros and Marvel branding on the tongue.

Vans have previously collaborated with Toy Story, Snoopy and the Peanuts gang and even Star wars. These quirky collabs are known for their amazing attention to detail in the design and popularity amongst fans (they sell out fast!). Read more about the iconic shoe brand Vans.
