Forget Trekkies, Whedonites, Whovians, and all the other fandoms that don’t have cutesy nick names (it’s high time Star Wars fans had one though, right?), when it comes to devoted fan bases that want their favorite entertainment property plastered all over almost anything they can purchase, nothing and no one touches the intensity of the Disney fandom. How hardcore are Disney fans? So hardcore that the House of Mouse has teamed up with Vans — you know, the shoes of Southern California skater punks everywhere? —to create a new collection.
Which is the perfect sort of gear for the currently dozens of Disneyland
gangs “social clubs” that roam the park on any given day. They’re harmless (and adorable), and now they have a whole new collection to obsess about and collect en masse. The brand spankin’ new collection — featuring their classic 1930’s era iterations of their most famous characters like Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto and Goofy (how can one tell it’s vintage Mickey? It’s all in the eyes) — is way more than just shoes, with apparel and accessories for adult men and women including t-shirts, hats, backpacks, socks, and more. There’s also stuff to purchase for your tinier tots, as the Mickey and Minnie Classic Slip-Ons, the Winnie the Pooh Authentic and Mickey & Friends Era shoes will also be available in kids and toddler sizes.
The collection will be available this June at Vans retail stores and other select locations, and you can check out our gallery of images from the new collection below.
