Nothing screams “hardcore skater” more than sneakers with adorable puppies and kitties on them. That must be why Vans partnered with the ASPCA for a set of kicks adorned with all-over patterned prints featuring a bunch of tongue-waggling dogs (on the high-tops) or purring cats (on the lows).
Well, they’re also intended to raise awareness for animal adoption, abuse-prevention, and the other good work that the ASPCA does. The shoe manufacturer debuted the line late last month with an open-adoption event with dogs and cats at NYC’s House of Vans, and the collaboration is now available online. In addition to the adult-sized lace-ups, the line also comes in kids’ sizes in both slip-ons and lace-up sneakers–as well as accompanying backpacks, hats, and a pug T-shirt. Now skaters everywhere can impress their friends with their triple ollie and their sensitive, world-aware side.
