Want: David Bowie sneakers

Vans, the shoe company that’s always been big into music (cf. The Vans Warped Tour) have released some new David Bowie kicks with a theme based on his glam years.

The Slip-On 47 V DX, Era, Old School, and Sk8-Hi each pay homage to a different Bowie albums: Space Oddity (1969), Hunky Dory (1971), Aladdin Sane (1973) and Diamond Dogs (1974).

What? No Ziggy? Strange.

One the shoes are released–they’re expected next month–they’ll run between US$65-80.
