In honor of the late, great David Bowie, Vans is dropping a cool collection of Bowie-inspired sneakers that pay homage to classic Bowie albums Aladdin Sane, Space Oddity, and Hunky Dory, as well as his most famous persona, Ziggy Stardust.

The collection includes glammed-out versions of four popular Vans silhouettes: Slip-On 47 V DX, Era, Old Skool, and Sk8-Hi.

The Old Skool model is an ode to 1973’s Aladdin Sane with a white upper that has Bowie's iconic red and blue lightning bolt print on the sides.

When it comes to the Sk8-Hi, the embroidered lightning on the side panel is a nod to Bowie’s alter ego Ziggy Stardust.
