Vans Joins Forces With Marvel

Sharing a rich heritage rooted in creative expression and empowerment, Vans and Marvel join forces once again to launch their largest collaboration to date. Celebrating the “Off The Wall” Super Heroes of the Marvel Universe, Vans introduces an extensive range of co-branded footwear, apparel and accessories featuring an all-star roster of iconic personas including The Avengers, Black Panther, Deadpool, Iron Man, Hulk and more! The Vans x Marvel collection is an epic collaboration for the ages, assembling a massive line-up of 70-plus styles for fans of all ages.

The Vans x Marvel collection kicks off with a selection of footwear inspired by The Avengers. Representing the Super Hero squad, a custom Old Skool has been outfitted with a unique color story to symbolize key members; a vivid blue toe-box and shield graphic heel counter are a nod to Captain America while the shoe tongue has been reimagined to mimic a piece of Iron Man’s high-tech suit of armor. Finishing details include a silver leather wing Sidestripe that takes styling cues from the all-mighty Thor and a brightly colored outsole that don Hulk’s signature green and purple tones. The Authentic presents a more subtle aesthetic, showcasing additional Marvel Super Heroes such Black Panther, Black Widow and Spider-Man in an allover print that also matches back to a selection of men’s t-shirts, hat, sandal and sock options as well as a special checkered apparel pack just for women. 

Black Panther, Hulk and Spider-Man are seen once again in the collection with their own dedicated capsules. Stylized with heavy-duty ripstop, claw-like hardware and embossed embellishments, the Black Panther Sk8-Hi references King T’Challa’s vibranium suit. Black Panther makes another appearance on the Vans x Marvel short sleeve tee and Torrey jacket, combining classic comic book artwork with vintage Vans graphics. The Classic Slip-On showcases Hulk’s amazing strength as his feet burst through the checkerboard pattern of Vans’ cherished lace-free sneaker. Hulk fans can rejoice in building an incredible head-to-toe look, as he has his own hat, t-shirt and sock styles while She Hulk makes her debut on the Vans x Marvel Pull Over Hoodie and short sleeve tee. Spider-Man’s superhuman abilities are on full display across the Classic Slip-On sneaker and Slide-On sandal while his spider web motifs and core colors influence the design of additional men’s, women’s and kid’s apparel and accessory pieces. Like a true arch nemesis, Venom counters Spider-Man’s vivid colors with a small-yet-sinister apparel offering that features the symbiotic Super Villain’s menacing grin. Deadpool makes a surprise cameo in the Vans x Marvel collection with a special colorway of the Sk8-Hi. Detailed in durable red and black leather, Vans’ coveted high-top is inspired by Deadpool’s suit, with weapons such as the katana and ninja stars embedded in its build for added protection against foes. 

The women of Marvel present their own ensembles within the Vans x Marvel collection, showcasing upgraded materials, rare patterns and signature colors across the assortment of women’s apparel, accessories and footwear. The Classic Slip-On pays homage to Black Widow with sleek nylon uppers and a beveled outsole in an all-black colorway like her bodysuit. A rubberized Black Widow logo is outlined in red for a subtle contrast and ballistic canvas quarter panels put the finishing touches on this stealthy style. Captain Marvel’s heroic hues empower the Sk8-Hi with red suede and blue canvas uppers while gold covers the Sidestripe and accents the back-heel counter with a cut-out eight-point star, Captain Marvel’s cherished emblem. Captain Marvel makes her apparel debut on a pullover, ringer tee and crew tee in her own “Off The Wall” logo pose; her suit’s colors and iconography inspire brand new backpack and crew sock accessories. The women of Marvel team up for a special, graphic-focused capsule that includes the Authentic, Slide-On sandal and an assortment of women’s apparel and accessories. The action-packed allover print features memorable heroines such as Medusa, Scarlet Witch, Storm and more!

Kids and toddlers can get in on the action with their own apparel and footwear styles from the Vans x Marvel collection. Highlights from the assortment includes kids-only footwear styles including the Sk8-Hi Zip featuring Spider-Man, Authentic featuring the women of Marvel pattern in full color and the Classic Slip-On showcasing Baby Groot across Vans’ iconic checkerboard motif.

For a limited time, Vans Customs will offer three exclusive Vans x Marvel prints that will allow you to create your very own Vans x Marvel designs. To create your very own pair of Vans x Marvel Customs please visit vans.com/customs beginning June 8.

Super Heroic Sneakers

Super Heroic, is looking to change the way kids play and think about self empowerment with a brand new line of running sneakers.

Founded by Nike’s former global design director, Jason Mayden, these sneakers are designed from the ground up with youngsters in mind. Mayden was inspired to start this project when he had a hard time finding active shoes for his child that weren’t just pint-sized versions of adult running shoes. 

Their shoe known as the Tumblr V1 Galactix features a unique design with a dual density midsole, rubber outsole, and sleek upper with a stretchy rubberized band for support. No more laces to come undone and trip over!

Check out this video of my daughter Elli unboxing her shoes:

The packaging is incredibly unique and fun. Each pair of shoes is stored in a shuttle-inspired tube that makes fun noises when twisted open. A backpack that morphs into a cape and colorful stickers are also included.

You can order Super Heroic shoes HERE for $80 in one of three colors; space purple, black, or blue.

Nike’s Self-Lacing HyperAdapt Sneaker Will Cost You $720

Nike revealed the price of its first self-lacing athletic shoe, the HyperAdapt 1.0 — a whopping $720.

Customers can book appointments there to try them on, or wait until later in December, when the sneakers are available at other stores and via the Nike+ app.

Select Nike+ app users will get early access to purchase the shoe on Nov. 28 for a limited time.

The black/white-blue lagoon color scheme will be available on Dec. 1 and a metallic silver/black-white sneaker will roll out later in the month.

The Nike HyperAdapt is the first self-lacing athletic shoe that Nike has released to the general public. It’s different from the Nike Mag, which is a replica of the self-lacing shoes worn by Marty McFly in “Back to the Future.” Only 89 pairs of the Nike Mag were made available to fans via lottery.

The HyperAdapt sneakers will be lightweight and rechargeable. The self-lacing mechanism of the shoe works more like automatic buckling — the way snow boots or roller blades tighten.

“When you step in, your heel will hit a sensor and the system will automatically tighten. Then there are two buttons on the side to tighten and loosen. You can adjust it until it’s perfect,” said Nike senior innovator Tiffany Beers.

LED lights in the sole of the shoe display the shoe’s battery life, which lasts about two weeks. (Reprinted from CNN Money)

How You Can Get A Pair of Nike Mag “Back To The Future” Shoes

2

Nike announced plans to release 89 pairs of the “Nike Mag” shoe through an online draw. The shoes light up and feature adaptive lacing—which lets a wearer push a button to tighten or loosen a shoe—making it a true replica to the footwear from the 1989 film Back to the Future Part II.

Contestants can pay $10 to enter the drawing, which will count as a donation to the Michael J. Fox Foundation. There’s no limit to the amount of tickets one can buy, so buying more gives the aspiring sneakerhead a greater chance of winning.

1

All of proceeds from the 2016 drawing—which runs from Oct. 4 through Oct. 11—will go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, and one pair of Nike Mag shoes will also be auction live in three locations: Hong Kong, London, and New York.

You can sign up for the online draw HERE
