Manila, PH (June 15, 2022) – Vans and Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon team up for a special collaboration inspired by the beloved tales of love and friendship from the legendary anime. The action-packed collection of footwear, apparel, and accessories capture the stories of Sailor Moon and the Sailor Guardians across iconic Vans styles.
The footwear range includes various designs across women’s, men’s, and kid’s categories. The Sk8-Hi Stacked infuses textiles with satin quarters and smooth leather overlays decorated with Sailor Moon’s transformation brooch and bow. Designs feature a printed gradient sidewall with translucent heels and toe bumpers dressed with Sailor Guardian planet symbols. The Sailor Guardians and Tuxedo Mask make an appearance on the Authentic as a tribute to the notable characters from the series. Slip into comfort with the Women’s La Costa Slide-On made with a synthetic nubuck strap featuring the Sailor Guardians.
The Old Skool Patchwork boasts an artful patch print that highlights the great anime.

The adult footwear assortment rounds out with a Sailor Guardians and Dark Kingdom-filled ComfyCush Slip-On.
With the collection’s apparel line, fans will find an assortment of women’s, men’s, and kid’s styles.
