We're a big fan of sneakers that not only provide sole protection and comfort for our feet, but also gives major style points. And no, sneakers are not just for the young ones -- moms love them, too! And we've proven before that moms can rock 'em sneaks.
So when we heard that sneaker brand Vans was coming out with a Toy Story-themed line, we just had to take a look. (Admit it: The grown-ups cried louder than the kids while watching the last scene from Toy Story 3 -- I just got teary-eyed remembering it!)
We found them, and now we're even more excited! Look!
Vans teamed up with Disney Pixar to bring us these oh-so-cute sneaks that remind us of why we're okay with our kids watching Toy Story re-runs on repeat during weekends of bed-weather days -- and this after 20 years since the first movie touched our hearts. "We all grew up watching [the movie] and are still huge Pixar fans today. We thought it would be a great way to continue the magic of this longstanding partnership," Dabney Lee, Vans' senior director of global footwear merchandising, told Refinery29.
Aside from tapping the well-loved characters from the first movie -- Sheriff Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Pizza Planet aliens, and even Sid -- for the designs, the creative team behind Vans x Toy Story looked at Andy's room and iconic movie scenes for inspiration. They even included nifty details.
"When Andy gets Woody for the first time as a young boy, he misspells his name with a backwards 'N,' but by the time he gets Buzz, he's able to write out his name [correctly] -- so, our graphics on each Woody and Buzz shoe reflect that progression," Lee explains.
Aside from the sneaks, the collection also features other merch such as caps and sweaters your tween or teenager will love.
There's no official word yet from Vans Philippines when it will drop here, only hinting at its debut by referring to the Vans x Toy Story line as its "holiday collection." Details such as price or if they're going to carry them in kiddie sizes are still unknown.
One thing is for sure: When it does arrive, we're going to line up to get ourselves -- and yes, the kids, too, maybe -- a pair (or two!).
