Fresh off February’s release of the Vans x Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary collection, it appears that the California-based shoe company will be honoring another global music icon: David Bowie.
The capsule will draw design cues from Bowie’s discography, which is featured on four of the brand’s classic skate silhouettes, each immortalizing one of Bowie’s famed studio albums. Included in the range is a polka dot version of the Era inspired by the “Space Oddity” album cover, a Slip-On 47 with a checkerboard fur, a reference to “Hunky Dory.”

Lastly, both the Old Skool and Sk8-Hi will pay homage to Bowie’s alter ego Ziggy Stardust and the album “Aladdin Sane,” highlighting the famous lightning bolt graphic printed on the uppers. All four pairs will boast co-branding on the insoles with Vans’ signature red branding on the heel of the midsole.
