Where’s Waldo? As of this week, the sneaky Brit has made his way to California, teaming up with Vans to appear on a number of their sneakers and clothing options launching this week. Check out the Waldo x Vans collection, available now.
The Where’s Waldo series of entertainment picture books first began its publication run in 1987, written and illustrated by Martin Handford of the United Kingdom. Each page in the books features a massive drawing of goofy characters and scenes absolutely overflowing with details, with the sole objective of picking the titular Waldo out of the crowd. Always spotted in his red and white-striped shirt, beret, blue jeans, and magical cane, each illustration is meant to fools the eyes, making Wally even more difficult to spot. This week, Waldo will be making an appearance on an entirely new medium, footwear, as California brand Vans has created a small collection of footwear and apparel decorated with Handford’s incredibly intricate drawings. Available in both adult’s and children’s size ranges, sneaker options in the project include the Sk8-Hi, Old Skool, Authentic, and Slip-On, each with a unique Waldo-themed all-over print.
