Having Peanut and Vans together in one sentence isn’t all that uncommon. The two have collaborated on multiple projects previously, combining Charlie M. Schulz’s graphics to the classic silhouettes of the Vans, but this may be their best iteration yet. This series however, pays homage to the original illustrations and iconic characters from the original Peanuts holiday TV special.

The Sk8-Hi Reissue and Old Skool models are the silhouette of choice for the artist, using the entire shoe as a canvas, primarily taking designs from the animated tv special, ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas,’ depicting the whole Peanuts gang dancing at a party.

For the 25th anniversary of the Half-Cab, Vans designers have included Snoopy and all of his family members across the panels of the shoe. The Checkboard slip-on has been reiterated to feature many playful Snoopy expressions on the white panels on the print, whereas the Sk8-Hi Reissue has been embossed on the quarter-panels to include a subtle presence of Snoopy and a hidden Woodstock on the tongue label.

A very special Classic Slip-On was also introduced to celebrate the long lasting bond between Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Woodstock and features plush patches on the vamp of each slip-On and is finished with ‘Best Friends’ embossed into the front toe bumper of each shoe.

Not only that, apparel and accessories will be available in a range of prints that match the footwear assortment, including the monochromatic Charlie Brown and Snoopy illustrations and Snoopy’s family for men. Women will have a playfully pink collection of the Peanuts dance party apparel and a tonal collection dedicated to Snoopy. Even the littlest Vans and Peanuts fans will receive their very own assortment of footwear that will be available in kids and toddler sizing including the comic strip and dance party Authentic. Just in time for Halloween, the Sk8-Hi Zip includes glow-in-the-dark Snoopy and Woodstock dressed up as mummies while the Old Skool V features easy hook-and-loop straps and uses the Snoopy Checkerboard print.

The entire collection will be available at Vans retail stores today on the 6th of October! Which one will you be copping?
