Nope, this isn’t a hoax.
Skateboard giants Vans is actually planning to release a series of adorable Toy Story-themed sneakers, with Woody, Buzz and even squeaky alien toy designs available! Now how awesome is that? Toy Story is, after all, one of the greatest animated films of all time, and it’s nice to see its legacy being preserved, especially in the form of stylish kicks.
The collab was cheekily confirmed by Vans in an Instagram post, which you can see below:
In a move that’ll totally please fans, the name “Andy” will be doodled on each shoe’s waffle sole bottoms, just like in the movies, and it’s pretty difficult to get more legit than that. Details are currently scarce at the moment – the collection’s release isn’t confirmed, and there’s no word as to how much the shoes will cost.
However, one thing’s clear, and it’s that these special Toy Story-inspired designs will feature heavily on Van’s Old Skool, Era, and Sk8-Hi Slim products.
