Vans Releases Inclusive ComfyCush Line For Those With Autism
$100,000 USD from the proceeds will benefit the A.skate Foundation
With shoes worn by toddlers and tykes to adults and those alike, Vans has never been a shoe that was exclusive or not accessible to the general public. Their price points are reasonable, and now so are their shoes for those on the Autism spectrum.
Vans has released a new inclusive and charitable collection in partnership with A.skate Foundation. Their new ComfyCush technology built a collection that is a rework of Vans’ most classic styles, including their Old Skool and Slip-On shoes. The sensory-inclusive collection, for both adults and children, features a calm color palette of pastels and details focused on comfort, support, and an easeful application. Using more padding on textiles, most of the shoes in the collection were designed as slip-ons or with a velcro adhesive instead of laces.
$100,000 USD from the proceeds will benefit the A.skate Foundation. The non-profit organization provides one-on-one skate lessons for persons with autism in an environment that is appropriate to their sensory needs in order to learn.
