Last year in April, leaked images of the Vans x David Bowie collection began circulating.
According to Reddit, it began with the Hunky DorySlip-On 47 V DX model leak. Then in December, they leaked the Old Skool model which features read lightning bolts on a white sneaker to commemorate his Ziggy Stardust alter ego persona.
They finally announced that the sneakers will be releasing but you have to sign up to be alerted with the official date.
No word yet on how many sneakers will actually be in the Vans x David Bowie collection.
While a few websites have posted 4, we came across another that we aren’t sure will be a part of the official collection. Found on Instagram account @lecentun . Check it out:
Official, or not?
Each of the sneakers will commemorate him and his albums: Space Oddity, Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust, and Aladdin Zane.
The exact date is still a rumor, and while Reddit user “SonnyDayRealEstate” says it’s April 4th and HypeBeast says it’s April 5th, assuming there are no surprises we can rest assured they’ll be coming in April.
You can sign up on Vans‘ official website to be alerted when the collection drops.
The prices will be set between $65 and $80 USD which is a great price for a collection of this magnitude. Start saving those pennies!
I personally love the Old Skool Ziggy Stardust model. It’s classic and very 80s . Let us know which you like, and if you’ll be dropping coins on any of these sneakers.
