Over the course of the last 64 years, Barbie has added many a different profession to her resume: fashion model, baker, news anchor, and dancer, to name a few. Yet, however, has she tried her hands at designing sneakers, though that’ll change very soon all thanks to Vans.
Hot off the heels of an extremely successful, live-action appearance on the big screen, Barbie is now linking up with Vans to put her spin on four different footwear selections. The Sk8-Hi Tapered and the Authentic take the helm, both clad in the footwear brand’s Stackform sole. What’s more, the two shoes feature an appropriate affinity for pink: the high-top brushes the color only along its accents — e.g. the bottom, Jazz Stripe, and accompanying branding — while the low-top takes things to the extreme, brightening up everything from its silken upper to its co-branded laces. The Style 93 DX and Slide-On VR3Crush round out the collection, boasting bow-shaped hardware and multi-color prints, respectively.
Enjoy a detailed look at the entire Barbie x Vans collection ahead. The above-mentioned pairs as well as an accompanying set of apparel will be available for purchase tomorrow, July 27th, at Vans.com and select Vans locations.
