Whenever you think about NASA, you definitely think of fashion. Svelte spacesuits. Onesie jumpsuit uniforms. Stylish moon boots. OK, maybe you would think of space exploration at first, until and unless you work for shoe and apparel company Vans. Then you surely think of fashion.
Vans has introduced a collection of NASA collaboration on Friday for celebrating the. The Space Voyager line features each and everything right from star-spangled kids’ shoes to NASA-logo high-tops meant for adults. You would also get to see a bright orange “grind skate duffel” as well as an Apollo 11 T-shirt.
Vans has been in existence for most of NASA’s history. The space agency started in the year 1958, while Vans kicked off in 1966. The fashion company is very closely linked with skateboarding culture.
The high-tops might actually be the most iconic option you will find in the collection. With a price tag of $110 Vans x Space Voyager Sk8-Hi 46 MTE DX shoes are known to sport NASA patches and the popular words “The Eagle has landed” and “For the benefit of all” right on the back of the heels.
The Online store of Vans US also accepts all international credit cards, but they only deliver to US addresses. You can find the Space Voyager collection on Vans’ European site, but that is without an online buying option.
The Space Voyager collection is definitely very popular, with a lot of options showing up as out of stock. So you better have good luck for getting a pair of NASA shoes to wear while you work on launching the perfect ollie.
