It's about time we suppose, but better late than never. Vans honours David Bowie with a collection of footwear and apparel. With a plethora of Bowie’s iconic works and personas to draw from, fans can look forward to shoes like the Vans Classic Era inspired by Bowie’s first hit single, ‘Space Oddity’ or the Sk8-Hi Platform 2.0, a tribute to Bowie’s glam rock alter-ego, Ziggy Stardust.
Our favourites though have to be the Vans' Old Skool taking its cue from Aladdin Sane, with the red and blue lightning bolt emblazoned to the side and the Vans Classic Slip-On modelled after Bowie's final album, ★—it's a stark black with a vinyl black star on the uppers with a galaxy of stars on the footbed.
There are also apparels to go with the shoes, as well as shoes for the young 'uns. Never too early to start them on the classics.
The Vans x David Bowie collection retail from SGD69 and are available at Vans outlets at Orchard Ion, Vivo City and selected styles at Bugis+.
