The new collection is in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.

Vans is out here breathing new life into the meaning of a statement shoe. After announcing the release of their A Nightmare Before Christmas collaboration, the US shoe brand are launching a new collection of trainers covered in boobs, nipples and positive slogans.

It's nothing smutty, though, it's all for an amazing cause. Vans are releasing the collection in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which kicks off tomorrow (1 Oct).

The range features Vans' iconic styles covered in the hand-drawn bodies of women, boobs and nipples. A classic slip-on style has the empowering slogan "You Got This" on the front with nipples acting as "o's".

Other styles include women of all shapes, sizes and colours in the nude, while others are simply just covered in nipples and even feature surgery scars from a mastectomy.

Some of the proceeds from the sale of the collection will go to UK-based breast cancer charity CoppaFeel!, which is focused on stamping out the late detection of breast cancer through the education of young people. Vans estimates that at least $200,000 (£160,259) raised from the sale of their shoes will go to CoppaFeel! too.

The collection isn't all about the shoes either, if you don't fancy having nipples on your feet, you can pick up clothes or accessories with similar designs.

And don't think the line is just limited to the ladies either, because breast cancer impacts everyone and to reflect that the collection is unisex and will be available to all.


The Vans Breast Cancer Awareness collection will be available from 1 October on the Vans website.
