Avengers: Infinity War may have hit theatres more than a month ago, but the Marvel hype train is still very much chugging along — side note, if you have yet to watch the movie in question, go out and do so immediately. Following the box office dominance of the aforementioned flick, creatives at the comic book behemoth have released a number of multimedia efforts these last few weeks to great success.

Just recently, “Starboy” himself, The Weekend, collaborated with the Marvel team to release a special edition comic that is already projected to sell a healthy amount of copies upon its commercial release next month. The crack team is also in the midst of rolling out Ant-Man and the Wasp press in the lead up to the film which debuts early July. And in the middle of all of that good stuff, Marvel is teaming up with the good folks over at Vans to release a slick new Avengers-themed capsule.

The sneaker collection is armed with three new editions of classic silhouettes: the Sk8-Hi, Old Skool and Slip-On. Naturally, these shoes are outfitted with colourful tinges from the Marvel universe, and are heavily inspired by the heroes of Infinity War. Upon first look, the kicks all borrow aesthetics from Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk, Black Panther, and of course, Spider-Man.

Vans and Marvel’s capsule will launch July 1st at select retailers, and you can get a sneak peek at the designs below.
