The shoe company has launched its new collection in collaboration with Where’s Waldo? that is paying tribute to the book character we can never seem to find.
The new Vans X Where’s Waldo? collection is truly one for the whole family. The 19-piece collaboration includes apparel and shoes for toddlers, kids and adults. Along with some new spins on Waldo’s iconic red and white striped shirt, there are also new prints inspired by the classic puzzle books.
“Dressed in a distinctive red and white striped shirt, beanie and blue jeans, Waldo is an adventurer who is never without his trusty magic walking stick. Introducing the Vans x Where’s Waldo collection, an homage to the classic series.”
For big fans of Where’s Waldo?, Vans is truly putting your eyes to the ultimate test with this new collection. Some of the new patterns include actual pages from the Where’s Waldo? books, giving you the chance to stare at your new shoes in search of the famous character.
For example, the Where’s Waldo? Classic Slip-Ons ($65) include a beach scene taken from the puzzle books. Somewhere deep in the beach-filled image is Waldo and his classic striped shirt. However, Vans is leaving it up to you to find him.
The Vans x Where’s Waldo? collection also includes a pair of classic Authentic shoes ($65) that have the puzzle book character covering it. Along with bright red laces, these shoes are the ultimate nod to Waldo and the nonstop search to find him.
The collection also pays tribute to the book character’s iconic outfit. Vans has launched its own version of Waldo’s red and white striped shirt ($39.50) along with a pair of Old Skool shoes ($75) reminiscent of the book series that launched over thirty years ago.

Vans’ new collaboration with Where’s Waldo? follows up the recent The Simpsons collection. As the company’s second-ever collab with the animated series, Vans reimagined some classic apparel and shoes inspired by the dysfunctional family we’ve all grown to love. For the holidays, Vans even brought out a cheery Christmas print exclusively for The Simpsons collab.
Along with The Simpsons collection, Vans recently launched new punk designs inspired by Vivienne Westwood. As well, you now have a reason to doodle all over your shoes thanks to this recent collection.
