Vans and Marvel have once again joined forces but this time to launch their largest collaboration to date! To celebrate the “Off The Wall” Super Heroes of the Marvel Universe, Vans revealed an array of footwear, apparel and accessories that features The Avengers, Black Panther, Deadpool, Iron Man, the Hulk and more! This collaboration assembles an epic line – more than 70 designs for Marvel fans of all ages.
The Vans x Marvel collection kicks off with a selection of footwear inspired by The Avengers. The Old Skool models are donned in colors that represent each Avengers while the Authentic model presents a subtler aesthetic that showcases additional Marvel Super Heroes such as Black Panther and Spider-Man in an allover print that also matches a wide selection of men’s t-shirts, hat, sandal and socks.
Styled with heavy-duty ripstop, claw-like hardware and embossed embellishments, the Black Panther Sk8-Hi model resembles the Wakandan King’s vibranium suit while the Classic Slip-On showcases Hulk’s amazing strength as his feet burst through the checkerboard pattern of Vans’ cherished lace-free sneakers. Fans of the Hulk can finally have their own head-to-toe ensemble as Vans x Marvel introduces Hulk’s own hat, t-shirt and socks styles as well as Classic Slip–On, Sk8-Hi and Authentics that showcase Spiderman and Deadpool respectively. What makes the Deadpool inspired footwear really pop is that the katana and ninja stars are embedded in the shoes!

Vans x Marvel Women’s collection includes the Classic Slip-On that pays homage to Black Widow as it comes in sleek nylon uppers and a beveled outsole in an all-black colorway just like her bodysuit.
