The new design takes after David Bowie's iconic red platform boots.April 3, 2019
Vans have revealed another sneaker design for their incredible limited edition collection honoring David Bowie. A few weeks ago, the shoe company revealed four styles commemorating four classic Bowie albums.
However, one more style seems to have joined the bunch. Fans will soon be able to get their hands on a slick pair of red and black high tops, reminiscent of his iconic platform boots.
The new kicks are perfect for folks who want something to commemorate Bowie in a subtle way. While the high tops don’t have any Bowie-related logos on them, they capture the musician’s aura and style strikingly well.
Check out the new kicks and compare them to his original boots that are featured in Chicago’s David Bowie exhibit below.
