A statement issued by the brand said: “For more than 30 years, The Simpsons television show has been a part of pop culture and has provided fun information about suburban family life. While The Simpson Family is featured more prominently, there are also items that are flagged along with a few other beloved Springfield residents including Otto, Crusty the Clown, Moe, Lane, and Carl. Key collection features include a Bart Simpson backpack, crisp bright yellow long-sleeved tee, and a pair of family-friendly sneakers. Fans of The Simpsons will be able to get their hands on jackets, baseball caps, pairs of socks and more.
The 31st series of The Simpsons, which has aired since 1989 and has become one of the most iconic television shows to date, having previously closed in 2020, the next edition is scheduled to begin in September. In June this year, the show’s producers vowed to stop using white actors for the voices of people of colour on the show following growing scrutiny over the practice in the wake of the worldwide Black Lives Matters protests.
Die-hard fans will be delighted to see all the favourite characters in the form of shoes and clothing. The Simpsons X Vans collection, of course, includes Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie Munch, but it also stars Moe, Linnie, Carl, Otto, Crusty, and even other fans of Marge, Patty’s, and the like, smoking sisters. It also pays tribute to favourites. Selma.
The new collection, which will be available on the Vans website, includes some classic Vans items, such as a crisp bright yellow t-shirt, a Bart Simpson backpack and the Simpson Sk8-His family. It even has a pair of pink doughnut slides that you can only imagine Homer rocking for a trip to Quick-A-Mart.
However, this won’t be the first crossover between Simpson and Vans. In 2007, Vans celebrated the release of The Simpsons Movie with a collection.
