Vans x Marvel Collection NOW AVAILABLE. Plus get Free Shipping on All Orders!

To celebrate the success of the record-breaking new blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War, Vans, and Marvel have come together for a collaborative sneaker collection inspired by the film.

Specifically, Vans and Marvel’s joint drop delivers vibrant new takes on the Sk8-Hi, Old Skool, and Slip-On silhouettes. The Old Skool pays tribute to the original four Avengers — Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk and Thor — and the Slip-On and Sk8-Hi styles take their inspirational cues from Black Panther and Spiderman. Notably, the Avengers Old Skool is rendered in a “What The”-influenced design that blends together themes from each of the four original Avengers. Captain America’s shield, Iron Man’s chest plate, the Hulk’s bold coloring and the wings of Thor’s helmet come together for a sort of “Frankenstein” approach to the Old Skool’s look.

You can check out Vans and Marvel’s Avengers-themed collaborative collection below. The shoes will hit select Vans retailers starting June 8.

At this point, I think I'm the only person that knows the movie exists. I have never seen or heard anybody speak about this movie ever. Like nobody. Not even the friends that love that random stuff. I can't be the only one that knows that "30 Minutes Or Less" exist. Which is funny since the movie made 40 million. Why the budget was 28 million is the real heist. Cause if you have seen this movie, you know that 28 million is not used or spent. This was before they all were big famous I would say. Anyways.  I watched the movie and love it. Not gonna lie, it was funny as hell. (You can buy it here). 

After watching the movie I did what I normally do. I went to Wikipedia. I love to read. So As I'm reading about the movie and not really finding anything to stand out I get to the end. The same end that's here today is there in 2011. Brain Wells.

"The plot of the film bears a resemblance to a real-life bank robbery gone wrong that resulted in the death of Brian Wells in 2003. As with the film, Wells was a pizza delivery man who was forced to wear a bomb and then robbed a bank under orders from plot's mastermind in an effort to have the bomb defused.Additionally, an investigation found that the motive behind the robbery was for Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong, the convicted mastermind, to use the stolen money to hire a hitman to kill her father and receive her inheritance, also like the film. Unlike the film, however, Wells was killed by the bomb after being caught by the police.

Despite the similarities to the case, Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group said the filmmakers and cast had no prior knowledge of the incident, while the screenwriters were "vaguely familiar" of it. Nevertheless, the film drew criticism from Jean Heid, Wells' sister, and Jerry Clark, a former FBI agent who witnessed Wells's death and led the case's investigation."
I had the same reaction you probably had. So I clicked the link and I'm reading about it and it seem like with each sentence, the crazier the story got. 

Brian Douglas Wells (November 15, 1956 – August 28, 2003) was an American man who died after becoming involved in a complex plot involving a bank robbery, a scavenger hunt, and a homemade explosive device. He was killed when the explosive collar that had been forcibly locked onto his neck, as part of the plot, detonated while he was in police custody in his hometown of Erie, Pennsylvania. Investigated by a task force led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in conjunction with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the Pennsylvania State Police, it was described as "one of the most complicated and bizarre crimes in the annals of the FBI"
Now I don't know if you have this long list of random fears but I do. This went right to the top. I never had any plans of being a pizza man but this makes sure that would never happen cause hell nah.  You think you delivering some pizza and the next thing you know, it's a bomb strapped around your neck.  

 I think I'm killing this so far with telling you while not telling you. So let's end this strong. 

 Evil Genius: The True Story of America's Most Diabolical Bank Heist premiered on Netflix earlier this month and ever since, debate has raged about the show's ending.

The four-part true crime documentary series followed the Pizza Bomber case, which saw pizza delivery driver Brian Wells rob PNC Bank in Erie, Pennsylvania whilst wearing a collar bomb which exploded and killed him following his swift capture by police.

Whilst trying to uncover the mastermind behind the plot and the designer of the bomb which took Wells' life, watch now on Netflix

Leave your thoughts in the comments cause I wanna talk about all this.

 Hey, are you reading this? Do people really read what I write, right here? I'm really asking cause I think y'all just shot right to the good stuff. The links for the clothes. Who cares about all this writing, right?  I can say anything here. Like once I ate some Ice Cream and then this Alien came and asked for half. Really didn't want to share but it's an Alien so respect.  

Gray Rose Print Ultra Skinny Blazer
Since you not really reading this: Shoutout to all us short people. We can wear stuff like this and not look like table covers. 

Pink Skinny Suit Pants
TopMan sells the matching pants to match the blazer but that might be a little too much.  Looking like you about to drafted to the NBA or something. 2nd round. 

 White Muscle Fit Stand Collar Oxford Shirt

I know I'm not the only person to do this, buy around three of the same white shirt. Never know when you need it again. I also don't wear too much white so the washing od white clothes don't happen too often. So just buy more white.  

 Old Skool

As much as I can I try not to wear dress shoes in the summer. Feet be sweating like a mutha. 


  Let me know on Instagram/ Twitter what you wearing today.

Raise your hand if you don't know how to swim. Now raise your hand if you can't swim and never go swimming even if you could. Now raise your hand if you can't swim and never want to go swimming even if you could but own a couple swim shorts. 

My hand is up. High.  Don't know how to swim and have no plans on it. Which is funny cause I been white water rafting before.All in the water. The way I see it. I think I know how to swim. I'm just too lazy to do it but if I need to, my mind will know what to do. 

Anyways, I own loads of shorts. With summer coming it's time to fake flex. Act like I'm going to the beach when I'm really just wearing the shorts cause I'm cool like that.  

 White Muscle Fit Stand Collar Oxford Shirt 

Why did I say the summer when I'm wearing this today. Giving it a test run. I kept the shirt super plain and in a second you will see why. 




Pink Geometric Swim Shorts
"Blaw tadow, watch out now, uh-huh. It's the little one and I'm not Bow Wow". Shoutout to Lil Kim. I will be wearing some loud shorts. This just the first one, this week. 

For the right (Sold out) 

Braided Leather Charm Bracelet
For the left. 

Authentic Blue

Now listen, I don't tell y'all how to wear anything but with this one, this one right here. You better not wear no funky socks with this. I'm not playing with y'all. Just wash your feet or something.  

Anyways. That's what I'm wearing today. What you wearing?
