(Rushden, UK) – 19 August, 2013 – Fresh for Autumn, Vans and Belkin have joined forces to bring consumers a brand new and exciting range of iPhone 5 and iPod touch cases. The Belkin and Vans collaboration demonstrates the best of both brands as Vans’ iconic aesthetic is paired with Belkin’s expertise in smartphone protection and accessories.

The Vans and Belkin partnership brings together two leading Southern California-based companies with over 75 years of success between them. Vans started with one Orange County shoe store in 1966 to become one of the most renowned action sports and lifestyle brands in the industry. In 1983, seventeen years later, Belkin began operations out of a residential garage and has evolved into one of the most respected labels in the wireless and mobile accessory business.

The cases in the Vans and Belkin collection are inspired by Vans’ iconic designs such as the vulcanized rubber waffle sole. In addition to coming in a variety of colours, the cases provide a shock-absorbent, firm layer of protection that fits the iPhone and iPod touch like your favourite pair of Vans.
