Vans Announces Capsule Collection for Mickey Mouse’s 90th Birthday

For once, you’ll want shoes that (metaphorically) squeak, as  Vans will help celebrate Mickey Mouse’s 90th birthday with a capsule footwear and clothing collection featuring some of the character’s most iconic looks. Hot on the heels of the Vans and Disney collection which debuted in October, the apparel brand created a “ Mickey Through the Years†line which will focus on — and showcase — memorable moments from the character’s illustrious history, from “Steamboat Willie” to “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.”The capsule collection features Vans’ original footwear model, the Authentic, with a print on the upper and the footbed featuring images of Mickey throughout the years holding…what else?…a birthday cake. The shoe is paired with a “Mickey Through the Decades†long sleeve T-shirt and jockey hat designed with a gallery of Mickey images. Vans Customs will also offer fans the opportunity to apply the “Mickey Through the Decades†print to their favorite Vans silhouette to celebrate the character in their own preferred way. (Unfortunately, “Mousercise Mickey” is nowhere to be found.)Vans is just one of the brands offering Disney- and Mickey-themed garments to commemorate the character’s 90th anniversary. Lacoste recently released a collection featuring both Mickey and Minnie on their classic polos and other clothing items for men, women and kids. Rag & Bone imprinted images and Mickey colorways on a variety of the brand’s signature clothing items including its RB1 sneaker. And ultrahip brands Opening Ceremony and Frank and Oak released limited edition collections featuring a variety of clothing items inspired by Mickey, the Mouseketeers and more.The “Mickey Through the Years†collection will be available in Vans retail stores and online starting November 16th.
