Vans is collaborating with “Sesame Street.” The Vans x “Sesame Street” collection honors the street where kids grow smarter, stronger and kinder. The Vans x Sesame Street collection is built for the entire family with a head-to-toe offering of adult and kids’ Vans Classics, Vans x “Sesame Street” by Lizzie Armanto Skate styles and Vans Customs prints.

Featuring familiar “Sesame Street” characters with an Off the Wall twist, the Vans x “Sesame Street” collection is made for fans of the past, present and future.

The adult assortment leads with the Vans Authentic in “Sesame Street” Yellow featuring a vintage Vans license plate sidewall design. Included on the quarter panels are Big Bird, Ernie, Bert, Cookie Monster, Elmo and Oscar the Grouch strolling together in harmony. The Old Skool in “Sesame Street” Multi illustrates inclusivity with a rainbow-striped mix of “Sesame Street” characters, including Gabrielle and Tamir.

Apparel pieces include a fleece sweatshirt set with a “Sesame Street” photo centered on the hoodie and “We All Belong” printed on both items. The BFF Short Sleeve T-shirt features designs of Elmo and Cookie Monster skateboarding beside Vans’ official logos. Two Mini Backpacks round out the assortment featuring checkerboard patterns with “Sesame Street” characters.

For toddler and kids’ sizing, the assortment includes designs featuring furry friends on the Sk8-Hi Zip in “Sesame Street” Multi, “Sesame Street” Tee in True Blue, “Sesame Street” Knot Tee in White and a matching Authentic in “Sesame Street” Yellow.

The Vans x “Sesame Street” by Lizzie Armanto Skate selection kicks off with The Lizzie in Marshmallow, featuring tonal embroidery of “Sesame Street” characters with pastel lining around the ankle and furry shoelaces. The style includes a furry “L” for Lizzie eyelet charm inspired by famous “Sesame Street” alphabet skits.

The Skate selection continues with The Little Lizzie in Marshmallow, the kids’ counterpart to the adult Skate style with “Sesame Street” character embroidery and bright lime furry shoelaces. Apparel pieces include a Lizzie x “Sesame Street” BF Tee in Asphalt and Little Lizzie x “Sesame Street” Crew in Marshmallow.

Fans can design their own Vans x “Sesame Street” footwear exclusively through Vans’ Customs platform. Three new prints will be available on Vans.com/Customs.

The Vans x Sesame Street collections and Vans Customs prints launch globally June 9 at Vans retail locations and Vans.com and Vans.com/Customs.
