Streetwear brand Vans has created a limited edition collection paying tribute to The Simpsons.
The range features over 60 pieces featuring Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie as well as other favourite characters.
Vans launched a Simpsons range back in 2007 but these are all new designs for the 2020.
You can get ComfyCrush slip-on shoes featuring the cast from Springfield all over or different styles featuring just one or two characters, like textured Old Skool shoes showing the Bouvier sisters.
There’s clothing items and accessories too – including a backpack with the classic Vans check print and the faces of The Simpsons family woven in, or a bucket hat with an eyeballs screen print.
For kids, there’s a range of different patterns. We love the tribute to the family pets or the 3D Blinky the Fish slip on shoes for toddlers.
And if you don’t see anything you like in the collection, there’s also a whole range of Simpsons prints in the customise area so you can design your own shoes.
Some fans loved the collaboration and were desperate to get their hands on their favourite pieces.
Responding to posts about it on their social media page, one person said: ‘I’ve never wanted to buy a shirt more.’
Another added: ‘Oh my god I’m excited. I need those El Barto shoes. And that Krusty Burger hat.’
But others had a few complaints once they saw the release.
One person said: ‘Am I the only one a bit disappointed? Not much for women I think. I was only looking trainers and they’re a bit expensive.’
The limited edition shoes do come at a a bit of a premium – for example, the Simpsons ComfyCush slip-on shoes cost £70 compared to £57 for the same shoe in the classic checked style.
However, the prices are in line with other recent collaborations Vans has done. Itcy & Scratchy Era shoes, for example, are the same price as the Era shoes in the National Geographic collection.
Others said they loved the kids patterns and were disappointed that they weren’t in adult sizes – but some fans pointed out they were available in the customise section so you could create your own bigger version.
You can view the full collection on the Vans website.
