For over 30 years, The Simpsons television show has been a part of American pop culture, providing hilarious insight into suburban family life. This season, Vans honours America’s favourite yellow family with a vibrant collection of footwear, apparel and accessories celebrating iconic moments from the historic series.

The "Vans x Simpsons" collection celebrates the entire Simpsons family (Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie) with depictions and references on Vans’ iconic footwear styles. The entire Simpsons family makes an appearance on the outside of the Sk8-Hi, with the iconic checkerboard print in Simpson signature shades of blue and yellow.

The footwear assortment is rounded out with eight more styles that pay homage to beloved Simpsons characters. Moe and the Bouviers occupy Old Skool colour ways while Scratchy gets a toon-filled Era style. A skate-approved colour block Slip-On Pro along with a Slide-On sandal are inspired by Homer Simpson’s famous pink donuts.

The collection’s apparel and accessorises line features a variety of women’s and men’s styles.  In womenswear, the Lisa Fleece features a purple colour block fleece crew with raglan sleeves and bright ‘Lisa Simpson for President’ on the back and front chest. The accompanying Simpsons Check Backpack features Vans’ iconic checkerboard print in Simpsons-inspired yellow, featuring close-ups of Lisa’s face and a rubberised logo patch on the front zip pocket.

For the men’s apparel, The Simpsons short-sleeve tee features a logo on the chest and a family scene on the back, a tribute to the show’s famous couch gag intro. The Simpsons long-sleeve tee features "El Barto" fleeing with graffiti can in hand, and the knit short-sleeve tee (a Pro Skate exclusive) is covered in Bart Simpson skull and crossbones.

The Vans x Simpson Collection will be available from 7 August 2020. To learn more and where to purchase, visit
