Vans and Sailor Moon are once again joining forces for the greater good. Partnering together for a fourth time, the collection continues, inspired by the legendary anime. The Old Skool Overt CC is the latest shoe to join the ComfyCush family, blending together the beloved tales of love and friendship.
Vans and Sailor Moon Debut The Old Skool Overt CC
The legendary brands are linking for a fourth time
The Vans x Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Old Skool Overt CC infuses the style’s ComfyCush foam sculpted midsole with Sailor Moon's portrait outlined and Sailor Moon’s partner, Luna sketched on the lateral quarters. Vans’ iconic Checkerboard appears in monochromatic black and gray tones stretched across the heel, complemented with pink embroidery throughout the upper and midsole, and Sailor Moon’s iconic transformation brooch over the laces finishes the look.
Designed with a roomier, sporty fit, the Old Skool Overt CC also features a rubber outsole plate for grip and traction, and overtly comfortable vibes from extra foam along the shoe’s collar, tongue, and quarter panels. As a symbol of self-exploration and innovation, the Old Skool Overt CC’s 360-degree sculpted midsole offers a compression.
The history of Pretty Guardian can be traced all the way back to 1991, when Naoko Takeuchi's original girls' manga began its serialization in the monthly magazine "Nakayosi.” The original work has since been translated into 17 languages, with the animated series having been developed in more than 40 countries, creating a social phenomenon in Japan and abroad. In 2012, a new project was launched to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the work. Additional projects consisted of an anime series, a musical, and an official fanclub.
This year, work is expected to begin on a special project for its 30th anniversary.
The Vans x Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Old Skool Overt CC is part of a larger capsule that launched last month spanning across iconic Vans styles and includes an option for fans to design their own Vans Classics through Vans’ Customs platform: Vans.com/customs.
The Vans x Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Old Skool Overt CC will be available beginning today at select Vans retailers and at Vans.com.
