We had such a great time hanging out in the Lucasfilm Pavillion at Comic-Con San Diego this week. We had a booth to showcase our Vans x Star Wars collection that is available now. We also had some of our rad design team that is responsible for the collection come down and sign limited edition posters of the prints they created. Shop our current collab at vans.com/starwars and be on the lookout for Vans x Star Wars round two coming in October.

A: Oh I like to listen to audio books. Right now I’ve been checking out Frank Herbert’s Dune and Caesar’s Commentaries!
