You know and love Vans for their cool skater kicks and now they’re putting some soul into their soles thanks to a collab with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The line, which debuted this spring, features all-over cat or all-over dog prints on classic Vans styles including sneakers, hats and backpacks. Some of the shoe styles are also available in kids and toddler sizes making it all even more squee-worthy.
“It was a natural fit to work with Vans, as their team includes many animal lovers and supporters of the ASPCA,” Helene Gordon, senior director of licensing and retail development for the ASPCA, told InStyle.com. In fact, the four-legged furballs featured in the collection are pets of Vans employees.
In addition to making a stylish statement, a free public pet adoption event was recently held at the House of Vans in Brooklyn, to encourage involvement for the national cause. Along with food trucks and family fun, six lucky critters from the ASPCA and Animal Care & Control of NYC were adopted into loving homes.
A generous donation from Vans was given to support the ASPCA for the collaboration. Shop the collection ($20-$65) at Vans.com and their retail stores.
