Vans and Yo Gabba Gabba Means NO Shoe Shopping Until November!


I remember my school days as the “most likely to stay clueless.” Just when I had saved, begged or stole (er, collected) enough change to get the must-have item that everyone was wearing, those blasted kids would go and change the rules of what’s cool. They would turn my coveted and long-pined-after item into a mere relic, a symbol of my thwarted attempts to fit in and ascend to a rank slightly above the C list.

Keeping up with the little Joneses means always being one step behind, but mark my words, your kids will not have to suffer like I did. Thanks to the early announcement that Vans and Yo Gabba Gabba! are teaming up to create a once-in-a-lifetime shoe collaboration.

The Yo Gabba Gabba! Vans will feature all your kid’s favorites — Toodee, Plex, Brobee, Foofa, and Muno. They will come in Van’s two bestselling styles of Classic Slip-Ons and Sk8-Hi Deconstruc and will retail for $40 and $45. Now you can save your money on those “other” unmentionable shoes you were planning to buy and pick up these babies before anyone else does. At least you’ll know your kids will be cool for a month or so, that is, until the next trend comes along.

Check back at for store information in November.
