Call the Avengers! Comics giants Marvel are collaborating with Vans in preparation for yet another raid on my wallet.
Because it’s not enough that I bought the Nintendo X Vans. Or that I had to hold a steady nerve to refrain from shelling out on A Tribe Called Quest X Vans, and may still fail. Or that I will be handing over money for the NASA X Vans collaboration in October.
Nope, the footwear and apparel company, known predominantly for its affinity with skateboarding, is launching a full scale ‘Age of Ultron’ sized offensive on my monthly salary with news of a collaboration with Marvel.

Sneaker website, Just Fresh Kicks, appears to have some early shots of the range which seems to focus on Marvel’s classic comic style.
Images from the site show a Black Panther styled Sk8 Hi, Spidey print Slip-Ons alongside classic Avengers print designs. Most striking from the shoes on show (it’s worth paying attention to the background sneaks too) is a black and white pair of Era featuring the Inhumans.
There’s no official product details or release date yet, but you can sign up at the Vans website to be notified as soon as they drop.
