Kick Ass The Movie – Era x Vans

Kick Ass The Movie - Era x Vans

Here’s a look at the Kick-Ass x Vans Movie collabo sneakers. This new yellow and green canvas colorway of the classic Vans Era is inspired by the costume of the main character in the new Kick-Ass movie (based on the Marvel Icon comic book). Kick-Ass stars McLovin from Superbad and that one dude from Ghost Rider and Valley Girl. *plug* *plug*

Vans hooked us up with a pair of these and we are clearly not immune to bribery.

Also, for some reason Chris from TSS is completely obsessed with this movie. More pics after the crump…

UPDATE
So it looks like Vans only made 100 Pairs of these and they will not be available in stores. So, no. You can’t have them. Stop asking.

Some things are so insanely over-the-top nerdy that, try as you might to hate, even if it is a viral marketing stunt, you have to respect them. *cough*Droga 5*cough*. Try hating on this video for more than 30 seconds. We dare you.

Chuck BB of Black Metal Comics counters:

[It is not cool] if you consider they paid to have all the area closed off you know so they could do it without error.

Listen hot dog. Its not every day that you get to talk to a 109 time Eisner winner and reality tv super star

Amen Brother.
