- Vans has teamed up with NASA to create a new line of shoes and clothing.
- The shoe brand’s cosmic offerings are already popping up on eBay.
- The spacy collection celebrates NASA’s 60th birthday.
The line features four different types of sneakers, two jackets, a long-sleeve t-shirt, a hoodie, an anorak, a duffel bag, and a backpack. There’s also a collection for space-obsessed kids, which features two footwear options and two different t-shirts.
And pieces of the line of space agency-branded sneakers, jackets, and bags may already be growing scarce. As of 10: 30 a.m. ET, clicking through the products on the space voyager collection’s official website only turned up error pages. A number of NASA-themed sneakers have also drifted onto eBay, where they’re being priced between $US130 and $US250. The shoes cost between $US85 and $US110 on Vans’ website.
But there may still be hope for aspiring space cadets. On Vans’ website, all 15 items are still listed for sale – and only the bags and t-shirt were listed as out of stock.
A Vans spokesperson told Business Insider that shoppers should check nearby stores if they find that a certain product is sold out on the brand’s website: “The Space Voyager collection really lifted off. They were released with a limited quantity and will not be restocking.”
The collection commemorates NASA’s 60th birthday.
Vans fans have already taken to social media to showcase their acquisitions – or lament missing the launch:
