Weird Al Shoe Collection

Posted by Sophie on Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

Evidently, “Weird Al” Yankovic has a shoe fetish – Vans shoes!  He’s been collecting Vans since the early 80′s and owns about 100 pairs so far!  Impressive!  I wish I had that many shoes… but without the Vans!  LOL!


They’re sort of like the comfort food of shoes for me.” – Weird Al

    I believe a lot of Al’s shoes were given to him by Vans. They’re pretty much a required part of his “Weird Al” look, along with the Hawaiian shirts. And if Vans did give him the shoes, it was a good move on their part. Go to a Weird Al concert and the percentage of people wearing Vans in the audience, especially in the first ten rows, will be very very high. At his last concert of the Straight Outta Lynwood tour in 2007, a bunch of friends and I stood in a circle and took pictures of our be-Vanned feet. I have a black pair with embroidered red cherries that I’m quite fond of.
