Vans and Marvel Entertainment, LLC are excited to continue their footwear collection this Fall featuring the most iconic super heroes of all time and available exclusively at Journeys. The collection that launched with Iron Man and Spiderman, each individually depicted on Vans Classic Silhouettes for adults and kids this Spring, now includes some of the most powerful super heroes in the World: Wolverine and X-Men.
Wolverine and X-Men debut for the first time on the Vans 106 Hi and Era shoes. The new line also includes a Marvel cover collage design on an Era, paying tribute to two iconic brands. Thanks to a sophisticated digital printing process, the intricate detail on these Marvel cover favorites bring the comics to life just like the stories and adventures printed on paper that have drawn in readers for decades do. Marvel fans, this collection is for you.
The Vans x Marvel collection is available at Journeys retail locations and Journeys.com nationwide for a limited time.
106 Hi: Dark and mysterious, uncanny in his supernatural ability to heal and grow old, Wolverine is out in the world for good. As one of Marvel’s most iconic characters, the super hero created in the original Chris Claremont/Frank Miller Wolverine mini-series of the 80s reemerges on the 106 Hi. This shoe's artwork stays true to its release in issue #2 of the revered comic book. This summer, Fox’s movie, The Wolverine, picks up the storyline of the series and brings this gem to Wolverine/Marvel fans and collectors everywhere. Era: On the Era, Wolverine takes on a more modern look than the vintage artwork of the Wolverine 106 Hi. Masked and stealth, fierce and swift, this Era shows a different side of this classic Marvel hero in a contemporary rendering.
Your feet will play Good versus Evil in the X-Men Era. The right shoe of this pair boasts the force for good with the assembled X-Men characters, while the left foot bears the presence of Magneto and his crew of evil mutants. A particular treat of this Era is the portrayal of Havok and Banshee, characters from the Marvel universe that have been dormant until now.
