UPDATE: NASA and Vans are apparently not only launching an Old Skool silhouette, but other limited footwear and accessory offerings as well. Additional sneakers include a “Firecracker” colorway for the Old Skool; Sk8-Hi 46 MTE colorways in “Space Voyager/Black,” and “Space Voyager/True White/Marshmallow”; Sk8-Hi MTE options in “Space Voyager/True White/Black”; and the classic Slip-On wrapped in a “Galaxy/Black” makeup. Moreover, a duffel bag and backpack are also included in the special drop.

Check out the full range in the tweet below and expect an official release this October 1. Pricing and store location details have yet to be confirmed.

Instagram user @dirtymoney823 recently posted what looks like a potential NASA x Vans Old Skool collaborative silhouette (but now has been taken down). IG account now @wts1987 has some looks as well. The classic low-top is equipped with deconstructed white leather uppers, tongue portions made of grey denim textiles, exposed foam padding on the collar liners, and reinforced rubber midsoles. Topping off the design are detachable USA flag patches on the heel caps and NASA lettering on the lateral sides. The execution, as a whole, seemingly echoes the footwear aesthetics of Tom Sachs and Virgil Abloh.

View the sneaker above and let us know your thoughts on this possible collab.

In related NASA news, the agency recently connected with SpaceX to launch a powerful telescope for alien planet discovery.
