We are definitely having the San Diego Comic Con withdrawals now and counting the days until July 2015. SDCC 2014 was another amazing year of fun and enjoying seeing some of our favorite comic book creators, toy companies, and entertainers. A new addition that would be added this year would not be expected, but we were very grateful to see them, the Vans company. We have been big fans of Vans shoes all our lives and it was exciting because of their new line. On Star Wars Day, May the 4th, Star Wars fans would be introduced to the Vans x Star Wars line and we were fortunate to score a couple of the super limited edition "Opening Ceremony" Star Wars x Vans shoes.
The Vans booth would be found in the Star Wars Lucasfilm Pavilion section and they were in perfect company for Star Wars fans. Once we learned about what Vans had planned for SDCC, we knew we would be hanging out at their booth a couple of times for signings and amazing exclusive Star Wars posters.

On the Vans x Star Wars signing on Friday, July 25th, we were able to meet Taka Hayashi who designed the Opening Ceremony OG Classic Slip-On LX Star Wars Miami AT-AT style. We had to bring our pair along for Taka Hayashi to sign. Along side, we would get a chance to meet Tony Munoz, who designed the Stormtrooper Bandana Vans for the 2014 Star Wars Summer Collection.

We would return to the Star Wars Lucasfilm Pavilion on Saturday, July 26th for another Vans x Star Wars signing to meet Calvin Garcia who designed the OG Half Cab LX Darth Vader shoes and OG Half Cab LX Yoda Vans for Opening Ceremony super limited release. This time, we had to bring our OG Half Cab LX Darth Vader Vans along to get signed by Calvin Garcia and we would get another opportunity to meet Taka Hayashi. Vans had another very cool SDCC Star Wars x Vans poster exclusive that featured the OG Half Cabs.

The Vans booth was a perfect addition to the San Diego Comic Con 2014 lineup and we enjoyed their booth and signings. We do thank Vans very much because they were surprised we brought our Opening Ceremony Star Wars Vans along to get signed. We actually received a very special surprise when they gave us a very limited Opening Ceremony Star Wars keychain which was a mini version of the Miami AT-AT style.
We also received big news from Vans that there will be more designs released later this year for their Star Wars line. Disney fans should also be very pleased because Vans will be planning a Vans x Disney run of Vans shoes in 2015!
Thanks again to the Vans Shoe Company staff at San Diego Comic Con for great signings and amazing posters and of course the keychain!
